“Head – XYZ”

February 25, 06 by Bharani

On Friday, one mid-sized software firm, having ODC’s in chennai and bangalore, offered very good salary for Business Consultants and Delivery manager positions.

As far as placements are concerned…There are some interesting trends that I am observing here:

1. Lot of people who have worked in a specific firm are not recruited by the same firm after MBA. This goes to show that firms don’t give any importance for your past relationships with them. Having said that, there are some exceptions too…But overall, it’s pure business and no loyalty/sentiments…”you contribute, we pay you”…

2. Companies with good brand (especially IT companies) are paying very less salary. Companies of lesser known brand are offering 40-50% higher salaries. Brand vs salary trade-off in action.

3. One who has strong vertical knowledge/horizontal knowledge has good chance to get an offer than a person who has spread his legs on multiple verticals/horizontals (in IT)

4. For mass-recruiters, Academics/Grade is a big elimination factor. For a selective recruiter, experience matters and only experience matters…

Today, one Media company, which has one very-well known and respected person known to ISBians on its board, made excellent offers. Salary was decent. But the roles were all tailor-made on the spot. Involves challenging responsibilities. You can see “Head – XXX” on many offers!

Few big names are in pipeline. They have requirements for excellent roles. I believe one of these offers will catch the attention of media soon…Let’s see…

The placement tempo has stabilized…Slowly people are taking things in their stride…

Will update my placement scenario after things are confirmed…

In 2 days, Term 8 begins…Looking forward to my last academic term (possibly in my life)…

This entry no have comments... but you can be first.
