Data obtained from the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B) shows that around 20% students in various courses remain jobless despite a brand name and robust campus placement programmes. A campus cell coordinator admitted that a few students lose out because of lack of good communication skills, good or have a CGPA less than 6.
"A few students failed to get jobs mainly because they were not prepared for the interviews. M.Phil students' campus placements remained low as they are from different backgrounds from economics to philosophy. We need to plan separately for each of them, "said Ravi Sinha, placement in-charge at IIT-B. Students who are most likely to lose out at campus placements are in two-year Master of Science, Master of Philosophy and Master of Design. Moreover, 13% of M.Tech and 10% of B.Tech students did not get jobs though they had assistance and repeated placement attempts. "The probability of selection is much higher on campus. Once you are out, it's difficult to get through, "said an M.Sc student who is jobless even after a year. "I got a few offers later, but they were not so good. I am preparing for Indian Engineering Services now, "said a 2009 batch MTech student. But, Devang Khakhar, director of IIT-B insisted that campus placements in 2010-11 have been better than the previous year and the institute is still the first preference for top employers. Of the 958 offers IIT-B received this year, 286 had pay packages of Rs 8.5 lakh per annum and above. "But the story is not the same in all the fields. There are few branches that are losing their sheen such as aeronautical engineering, "admitted a professor from the institute, on condition of anonymity.
