CAMPUS RECRUITMENT TRAINING


There has been a stupendous growth in the banking and IT sectors. There has been hiring drives conducted every year at colleges. The IT sector per se employed around five lakh employees in 1999 and today, it directly employs more than 40 lakh employees while indirect employment as more than 1.3 crores. Indian IT companies cater to more than 330 companies.

More than 3 lakh graduates pass out and join various organisations like TCS, Infosys, Wipro, CTS, HCL, Tech Mahindra, or NON-IT companies like Reliance, Tata Group or global giants like IBM, Accenture, HP etc. There has been a specific demand in banking and financial services sector, which recruits fresh graduates on a bulk basis for various roles like sales, relationship management, back office operations etc.

This requirement of IT/NON-IT companies is generally fulfilled by two different methods. Firstly, through advertisements in newspapers to reach out to potential and interested candidates. This is a longer process. Generally takes around a month to finalise the process. This is generally suitable for lesser number of vacancies or for filling up mid and senior level positions.

The second and the most effective method resorted to by organizations for bulk hiring is to visit the campuses and recruit the candidates from those campuses. This method is referred to as Campus Recruitment. In this method, both the organizations and the prospective candidates are on a common platform. This method provides a platform to the candidates, who are ever enthusiastic and extremely motivated and who are willing to go that extra mile to prove themselves. This system enables the candidate to have a smooth path to enter the job market straight from the college campus.

The various stages involved in the campus recruitment process by companies are fair and large the same with slight modulations in process. However, the general method to assess a potential candidate remains the same.
