Dear Students, As you know, the Campus Placements Activities have already begun at our Institute. In this connection, I would like to share an article (PFB) by Mr. Prashant Yadav, CEO, Bodhisutra.com, and an alumnus of IIT Kharagpur and IIM Ahmedabad about PREPARATION FOR CAMPUS PLACEMENTS.
Campus placements: 10 preparation mantras

A great first job can go a long way in paving the road for a rewarding career. That's why campus placements occupy a student's mind right from the day he or she enters professional college. But approaching them in a systematic manner, is a must.

Step 1: Build a Resume
IIM students get started six months ahead of placements. What's more, the resume undergoes at least 30 cycles of change and review!
Start by reading at least 15 articles on Resume, online, and develop your own understanding of what constitutes a good resume.
The layout must be clean avoid unnecessary clutter, fancy fonts or colours. Keep the text sharp by editing out unnecessary words but at the same time highlighting your strengths.
Choose your words strategically. For instance, 'Was captain of my college cricket team at the inter-college sports meet' could read as 'Led my college cricket team in the inter-college tournament.'
A useful rule of thumb while deciding what to include in the resume - see if it really helps the recruiter make a decision about you. For instance, writing your father's name or marital status (in most cases) adds no value.
Projects, training and internships must be described in such a way that they reflect your contribution. You could use a three-point format, each point not more than one sentence - project objective, what you did and what you achieved, that is, the result.
Highlight extracurricular activities where you excelled over others.
Show the first draft to your Training & Placement Officer (TPO), a lecturer who has worked in the industry or anyone with professional exposure whom you can trust for

    student rights earned My name is Diana V. I am a student at Foothill High School and I am writing an essay on whether or not high schools should have an open lunch campus. Here are some of my ideas. I believe sophomores and higher grade levels should be able to leave for lunch and come back by the next class. When the school keeps students on campus it makes the students want to leave. First of all, the food isn't as good as it would be for ex. At McDonald's or Taco bell, everyone knows cafeteria food is not that appetizing. For students to concentrate better, don't we need a good meal? I think so. Second of all, if the school is concerned about students "ditching" classes, it wouldn't be such a bad idea to keep track of attendance after lunch. Confront the student about their skipping and punish them for it. Punishment could mean cleaning the tables after everyone at lunch, after school detention, or taking away off campus privileges. Third of all, when students leave campus and COME BACK, it shows dedication to return and learn. Also students learn responsibility and it's helping us be ready for our independent life as adults. Thank you for taking your time reading this:)…

    The Dome that rests atop Beardshear Hall was almost never a part of Iowa States’ architectural wonders as it was removed from the original budget due to a lack of funding. Beardshear Hall has a very rich history that dates back to over a century ago. Beardshear Hall has been an integral part on campus even before it was fully completed, housing multiple programs, which were eventually transferred to other buildings, as more administrative space was needed. The story of Beardsheer hall unfortunately starts with not one but two great tragedies in Iowa State Universities’ architectural history.…

    There are many different organizations on campus that students can join to help them get involved and be a part of something that interests them. Some may choose to get involved with something more athletically oriented, others may choose something that has to do with their major. One of the ones that I find to be very important is the Gamma Phi Beta sorority of the PanHellenic Council. Gamma Phi Beta inspires the highest type of womanhood. However, being a part of any sorority, you will make lifelong friends and maybe even find your future bridesmaids.…

    We spent a while on researching the proper way to apply to a job; including how to fill out an application, how to do a cover letter and different interview skills. I come to find out that it is very important to know how to fill out an application the right way and know how to write up a resume because those two things can make or break your chances in getting the job. When writing your resume you want to use ¨power words¨ in order to make yourself sound more appealing. Also your formatting of the resume has a bigger impact on the job than you might think. You want to make sure your resume is only one page, filled completely but not too cluttered and is always truthful to what you are capable of doing. When filling out the application the most important thing to think about is to be honest. You do not want to imply that you can do something that you can not do. Next, to create a successful cover letter you want to make sure that your formatting is correct. Also you want to make it appoint that you are interested in the job and go into a little bit of detail on why you think you would be perfect for the job. Lastly, at the end of your cover letter you always want to ask for a interview and that you look forward to hearing from them. Once you do get the interview you want to prepare for it. You want to look presentable, like you actually want the job. Also you can simply look up…

    Applying for a job is the first step towards success. There are a few key concepts that an applicant should know before applying. The applicant should be honest, committed, and have excellent writing skills. They should be able to communicate not only with clients but with others in the workplace. Communication is the key to success in a career. The applicant should be well dressed and professionally groomed to show that they are ready for the job. Having a well written resume is another necessity. Having a resume that is different from other applicants will separate it from the rest. Having short and to the point features about yourself that include brief work and volunteer history will make the resume easy to read and attractive.…
