My personal teaching philosophy is simple. If I haven’t consumed at least half-a-litre of water during a session, I haven’t been energetic enough!, Dr. Amar Nath Chatterjee, Adjunct Professor, OB/HR & OM

“Unending backing by the Jaipuria faculty creates a family-like support system that a student needs at this time”, says Harshita Shukla
Harshita Shukla topped all the three semesters and nearly topped in all the individual subjects as well. This winner attitude has helped her bag a placement with Orient Fans, a CK Birla Group subsidiary. She is being taken up as a Management Trainee and will be given the opportunity to do project-based work in different departments. After this intense training and monitoring of one year, the company will decide which department she will be absorbed into.
Sharing her experience of placement, Harshita says, “The recruitment process at Orient Fans was a four stage eliminative process. The first three rounds consisted of the Aptitude Test, Group Discussion and Interview and finally, there was a last interview with the Leadership team. The first three rounds were conducted in Lucknow with over 90 students. In the aptitude test 30 students were selected to sit for the next round, which was the group discussion. After the group discussion, 13 students got selected for the personal interview round. I was finally shortlisted for the last interview with the leadership team along with four other candidates. I was the only one to be shortlisted from the Noida campus. The last interview took place on 2nd Jan 2013, after which only two candidates were selected; luckily, I cracked it and found a place in the company.”
Harshita thanks her faculty at Jaipuria for the support and guidance she received in choosing the companies and preparing for them. The intense exercise of interviews and final placements creates a lot of stress and the backing of the faculty and staff creates a family-like support system for the student, something that Harshita is thankful for.Read more
