i heard frm someone tat fr summer placements...companies coming on day zero fr finance related roles prefer IITians over students frm other Institutes...is this true???
Nope, its not that they prefer IITians.
But let me put it in the correct perspective. If you are targetting a day zero company, your profile needs to stand out from the rest of the crowd. Only then would these companies invest their time in meeting you and interviewing.
If you are very adamant to get into a day zero company make sure you have what it takes to differentiate from the rest of the 450+ students in your batch. Do remember that everyone aspires for the best.
P.S.: Its not an IITian speaking here, but a person having a 2-digit national ranking in IIT-JEE would always stand a better chance of getting shortlisted, unless other guys have something brilliantly outstanding on their CV's.
P.P.S: I would suggest that bask in the glory of making it into one of the most prestigious institutes of this nation rather than worrying about how the placements would be. We have an history of some of the best placements (this yr the final placements took only 4 days!!!) across campuses and even the day 2 offers are far better than that at several other institutes.
Finally: To all who think Fin are the only roles worth aspiring for!!!!
IIM C does not gurantee that all those who take admissions here would end up becoming a Fin guru of the nation. But it does offer every individual an equal chance to let go of what happened in the past and re-write their destinies the way they want!!!
