Sir, I said "I am part of two start-ups" not the "sole proprietor" of the both and If i could manage a score of 96.37 in xat and ~95 in cat while being a part of 2 start-ups and working full-time in another job I can very well manage time. In my experience these are not un-heard of things and lesser mortals like me can sometimes pull off these things because of their love of a particular field.
To people who love their work, it seems like play to them :)
I am sure you understand this joy because you have associated yourself with a start-up.
But thank you for helping me with the lines "An MNC company might pick up 2 best candidates from a tier 2 college next door with 800 students than coming all the way to manipal. we cannot predict these things nor can we expect things to happen just because it is right".
I said what I did because it didn't specifically answer the query but just skirted around the question so I thought you must have mistook my question and hence I clarified the same with a reply which let you know what I wanted to know. The specifics of my work profile was given to give you a better context :)
I couldn't locate a flaw in my query and as a junior I would request you to just let me know where and if I faltered in my query or replies so that I can do better with myself.
At the same time, I would suggest against using sardonic satires for answering queries which are very well directed and precise. After all you aren't just answering me but a million other souls who look up to the college are online looking at the answers you present to aspirants who will decide to join or not join the institution basing on the answers you provide and of course in the temperament you do the same as well : )
All the best on your the start-up you joined and I hope you really grow with it. I shared about my story because I thought you could relate to it. Sorry if you felt bad about me sharing my thoughts and queries.
Thank You for taking your time off to answer the questions :)
You are being quite the devil aren't you? :)
These questions you have raised are very much macroscopic in nature. Like Balesh says, how are we to know why X, Y or Z companies don't recruit here? What we do know is we have our alumni in certain co.s who drive recruitments every year. Those are among our regular recruiters.
Other recruiters come here based on their business outlook for the financial year, and their requirements. So these are our 'variables'.
So now, where is this discussion leading to? The case of the recalcitrant recruiters, yes. Well why do some recruiters who come here, don't go to some other comparable campuses? I know some. Can't tell you why since I simply do not know.
For the record, the college has taken some actions as of March 2010 and restructured the placement committee based on feedback from recruiters and alumni. This move is expected to reap benefits, especially for the joining batch of 2010 with the benefits of the mentioned changes expected to take effect within 1-2 years. "Benefits" are to be read in terms of developing better relations with, and getting more recruiters on campus for placements. Hope that helps.
