Campus Placements

Campus placement scenario remains bleak

PATNA: Even as a number of professional institutes have been started in the city in recent years, the placement scenario is still bleak in most of them. All the pass-outs of these institutions are not able to fetch good jobs despite the best efforts of the authorities concerned.

A couple of years back, the placement scenario at National Institute of Technology Patna (NITP) was quite satisfactory as almost all the students of different trades got lucrative jobs through campus placement. But, nowadays, not more than 80% of eligible students were being recruited through different companies visiting the campus, said a senior teacher.

The Indian Institute of Technology Patna (IITP), Chanakya National Law University (CNLU), Chandragupta Institute of Management Patna (CIMP), Central University of Bihar (CUB) and National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) have all been striving hard for securing cent percent campus placement for their students, but they are still far from reaching the goal. "We are trying our best for the campus placement of our students by inviting reputed law firms and hope to achieve the target very soon," said CNLU registrar S P Singh.

Patna University (PU) has been running a large number of self-financing and vocational courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level for the last several years, attracting talented boys and girls, but no sincere effort has yet been made by the authorities concerned for ensuring suitable placement for the pass-outs. The placement scenario appears quite bleak. A few years back, PU had set up a placement cell headed by then Directorate of Distance Education (DDE) chief. Initially, this cell did manage to invite some organizations on the campus and secure jobs for the university scholars. But, due to reasons best known to the authorities, the cell is presently lying dysfunctional.

The PU Employment and Guidance Bureau, which used to provide necessary information to the university students about job avenues in different sectors and also served as the employment exchange till some time back, has also, of late, become almost dysfunctional.
