I was wondering that too many colleges are facing placement problems nowadays including IIM's as per econominc times of 18th march. Only doing an MBA is not just suffifcient. So thought of starting a thread where everyone can suggest ways to improve marketability of a candidate or a differentiating factor which a candidate can mention in his/her resume.
How students can differentiate themselves & improve their marketability?
For finance students:
- Add a professional qualification like FRM, CFA
- Do a small certification/diploma course in financial research
- Work in a finance co. to gain work ex
For Marketing students:
- Do a certification course in Social Media Marketing
- Learn about Google ads & various other platforms where you can advertise yourself
For HR students:
- Certification course in PR
- Any other short term project with an HR co.
People please mention what can a student do improve his/her acceptance in the industry according to you.
