ABOUT 7,000 students – mainly from Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh – are expected to participate in a three-day mega job fair – Lakshya 2006 being organised by the RKDF Group of Institutes from November 24 to 26 on its campus at Mandideep.
The fair is totally free of cost with no registration fees charged and organisers will make arrangements for free lodging and boarding of students.
As many as 32 prominent companies from various sectors – mainly IT, engineering and pharmacy, will be conducting simultaneous selection process for present and past students of various engineering, MCA, MBA, IT, Pharmacy and Medical faculties during the three-day fair.
This is the first time in Madhya Pradesh that so many prominent companies will be on a single platform to select about 1,000 candidates, chairman of the group Sunil Kapoor said at a press conference on Sunday. The fair is being organised in collaboration with Times Job.
Although the fair is mainly for students of 2006 and 2007 batches, all past students who are not satisfied with present placements will also be entertained. Almost 300 colleges including 86 from Chhattisgarh have been formally invited for the job fair, although the registration is open to all.
Registrations will continue through colleges, online and on the spot at the venue during the fair till the last date. Students can register online on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over 105 faculty members and 280 first and second year students of the college will assist companies to conduct the fair. A well-defined system has been chalked out wherein students can apply for and appear for interviews with multiple companies. Police security will be available at the venue.
Kapoor said almost 54 per cent of the students of 2007 batch of the RKDF Institute of Science and Technology have found placement but the aim was to achieve 100 per cent placement for host college students through this fair. Other students will also be benefited in an unbiased manner as the event is purely meant to be a welfare activity, he said. Already about 2,800 registrations have been done, he said.
The chairman also said the activity was expected to be onset of a placement trend wherein Bhopal would become a placement hub on lines with Pune and Bangalore.
Co-chairman B L Khurana, Sadhna Kapoor, Dr N K Mittal, Harmohan Kapoor, Dr Preeti Tiwari and Brig M L Khanna were present at the press conference.
