Setting aside all apprehensions of a slowdown in corporate hiring, Jaipuria Institute of Management has not just equaled its record-breaking placements of the previous year, but has surpassed itin many ways. While the average package offered this year was at par with the previous year – about INR 4.7 lakh p.a. – the highest package from the domestic market was a shade above what was offered last year, at INR 8.9 lakh per annum.
“This can clearly be attributed to Jaipuria’s UnCampus philosophy,” says Mr. R. K. Rishiraj (Head –Corporate Relations & Placements, Jaipuria Institute of Management). “Till 2011, all our three locations then – Lucknow, Noida and Jaipur – were carrying out placements independently. Last year, as a part of our UnCampus effort, placements were centralised for all four locations – Indore being the fourth one. Students have benefited immensely from this policy of engaging recruiters at campus level as well as a central level. This is why our placement graph has sky-rocketed in the last two years, with recruiters coming in from sectors like Consultancy/KPO, Manufacturing, FMCG/Consumer Durables, Financial Services, Banking, Retail and Real Estate.
“Nowhere else will you find students appearing for the same interviews, helping each other out. Jaipuria Institute of Management has a truly extraordinary culture”, shares Prachi Sahai (batch of 2013-2015) who is currently placed with Federal Bank as an Assignment Manager.
While over 130 companies visited the three locations last year, this year an astounding 200+ companies have visited Jaipuria locations. This included the fourth location at Indore, where the 1stbatch was successfully placed this year. Some of the prominent Recruiters for the 2011-13 batch have been CROMA Retail (TATA Group Company), Deloitte Consulting, Orient Papers & Industries Ltd., Smart Cube, Cadburys, Berger Paints India Limited, Axis Bank, Havells India Ltd., Blue Star Ltd., KPMG, Asian Paints Ltd., CNBC-TV 18, Wipro, Genpact, ZycusInfotech, Luminous Power Technologies (P) Limited, Capital IQ, Swarovski, Polyplex Corporation Limited, ICICI Securities Ltd., XL Dynamics India, Kokuyo Camlin Ltd., Colgate Palmolive, IIFL, Vishal Retail Ltd., Indiabulls Securities Ltd., Future Generali India, Dun & Bradstreet, RSPL Group, Ernst & Young, Barclays Shared Services, Safexpress, TATAMc-Graw Hill, Gati Ltd., Business Octane Solutions, Standard Chartered Bank, IndusInd Bank, Federal Bank, ITC Ltd., LG Electronics, Nestle, Deutsche Bank, Just Dial Ltd., Kurlon, TTK Prestige, Hindware, Shoppers Stop, KPMG, ICICI Bank, India First Life Insurance, and Progressive Media.
A very interesting aspect of the recruitment trend was:
- Nearly 40% of the students were placed in the BFSI sector
- 14% in the Manufacturing sector
- 10% in the Real Estate sector
- Recruitment this year also confirmed news of a definite slowdown in the IT/ ITES industry (5%)
“Jaipuria Noida provides a great platform for employment opportunities. I believe that no other organization would have given me the kind of exposure that I have got here within a short span of a year”, shares Shambhawi Singh from Jaipuria Noida (Batch of 2011-2013).
“Placements are not an issue at Jaipuria. Corporates are always on the lookout for talents. Our endeavor year-on-year is to improve the quality of placements and add new corporates across all sectors to fulfill the aspiration of the students”, says Mr. Shreevats Jaipuria, Vice Chairman of Jaipuria Institute of Management.
