ForewordDr Bharat Lohani
We have come a long way since we published our first Student Placement Guide. Since thenwe have seen the best and worst of economy and its impact on our placement. This year wehave been hovering around 80 per cent overall placement and considering the market I willagree that this is a good result. I congratulate our student coordinators and SPO staff forthis. In the last year we saw the most tough interviews and selection procedures-in fact thecompanies truly came for "cherry picking". A large number of students made it and a fewcould not. The most intriguing fact was the feedback that we received from the companiesabout our students and their preparedness for their career and interaction with companiesduring placement process. I am convinced a lot needs to be done on the part of students tobe more saleable and attractive to the companies. A high per cent placement figure is not thereal measure of our success at SPO but how many of our students have actually gone to thebest of the companies and are satisfied with their job is. Compromising on one's passion andsettling for a job is not the best thing that should be done with the First Step to one's career.The success of SPO should be measured in a job satisfaction index instead of the per cent.Based on the feedback that we receive from companies and the experience of SPO studentmembers and staff, I am pained to say that most of our students approach placement processwith half preparedness, low conviction, and blurred vision of their career. This is not goingto yield a high job satisfaction index..I firmly believe that our students need to make better job choices and be better prepared forearning these. We at SPO have been doing all which can help in this direction-of course, thefinal push has to come from the student. Here is one more such attempt by SPO (especiallystudent members) to put together the feedback of recent alumni who we believe- and thegeneral perception is - have a higher job satisfaction.
