I had been to SJCE last weekend to conduct internship interview for the current final year engineering students. The turn-up was much less than expected. We went quite late this year and many students were already offered projects in other companies. Also we had a cut-off of 70%. About 40 students took the written test. We short-listed 13 and ended up selecting 3 students. All 3 were from Information Science. We had expected 120 students to turn up and we were planning to select 9-12 students.
Congratulations to those selected. And a suggestion to those who were not: It is not the number of companies that you are placed in that matters, nor is it the pay. It is your fundamentals that will take you a long way. Don't blame the company if you are not offered a quality job. Ensure that you have what it takes to get one.
