Director’s Remarks | IIT Bhubaneswar
IIT Bhubaneswar released a statement to assure their students “Amidst doubts expressed all around about the effect of placements for engineering students during 2020‐21, the first flush of pre‐placement offers (PPOs) now being handed out at IIT Bhubaneswar are pointing to a very encouraging placement season ahead, this year.”
Furthermore, professor RV Raja Kumar, Director, IIT Bhubaneswar assured the students and said “The premier institute has seen a surge in PPOs this year with the offers received already equalling last year’s total offers and is sure to surpass.”
“Offers as high as 43 LPA CTC has already been made. The majority of them are core industries and are wide-ranging indicating a health trend,” the director added.
This can be due to an impressive performance of interns working at highly esteemed companies. Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, DeShaw, and GEP Solutions have been increasingly using PPO more because it helps them select best suited and skilled candidates for their companies’ needs.
“Companies use PPOs to get an early advantage in the war for talent at the placement season on campuses. The companies can come again for campus placements to hire more. The shift of the campus placements to the virtual mode will be the trend making it more safe and convenient and is sure to be promising despite the ecosystem facing economic crisis owing to the ongoing pandemic situation across the globe,” added the IIT Bhubaneswar in a statement.
