Campus Recruitment is not a very big hit

Have corporates been able to connect right with campuses? The answer is, No. Acooroding to Mr Madan Padaki, Co-founder and Director, MeritTrac Services, a skills assessment firm, it has not been possible. "There has not been any attributable difference in terms of hit ratio in recruitment of engineers." When it comes to hiring fresh engineers, the conversion rate remains at 15-18 pct for services companies and 6-10 pct for product development companies, with some region-wise differences. In his opinion, the benefits of campus relationship programmes would be felt two years from now“, he said. Mr Rishi Das, CEO, Campus Connect, agrees that not much has changed in terms of employability index of engineers. "The good thing is that companies are investing a lot more on training their engineers." Campus Connect is a Bangalore-based consulting group whose programmes attempt to bridge the gap between industry and academia. Like always, companies that are seeing a growth of 60-70 p! ect on the people side are betting big on campus recruits this year too. MindTree Consulting, which used to pick talent only from Tier I institutes all these years, has now decided to hire top performers from Tier II institutes to supplement the demand, according to Mr Mohan Sitharam, Associate Director, People Function, MindTree Consulting. Mr Srinivas Velidanda, Director, Recruitment, Perot Systems, however, has seen some change in the talent pool this year. Some of the students have come better equipped with soft skills such as communication and management skills. "Though our recruitment criteria has become stringent, our hiring ratio also remains at last year's figure (100:20), which means students are also becoming more employable this year," he points out
