Make the Most of Job Fairs
Job fairs are a way for you to meet the top companies in your industry and apply for a job you thought was out of your reach. Job fairs help you get an idea of how many companies are looking to hire, what the competition is like and talk directly with the decision makers. Companies participating in the job fairs are also looking for fresh talent and are eager to discuss opportunities with you.
SMU-DE’s recent job fairs held in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore were a huge success. Companies such as IBM, Justdial, Genpact, The Leela, Eureka Forbes, IndiGo, Kazo, ICICI Bank, Axis Securities, HDFC Realty, IIFL, and Mahindra Finance were some of the big names that participated in the fair. There was a good mix of IT, retail, finance and other fields ensuring that all our alumni from various professional and academic backgrounds got an opportunity to make their desired pick.
Our students and alumni never miss the opportunity to get noticed by these companies and they always show up in huge numbers. Mumbai witnessed over 800 walk-in participants, Delhi had 956 and Bangalore had 630. Even with such a high number of walk-ins, 385 candidates were shortlisted in Mumbai while the number was 425 in Delhi. That’s not all, 23 and 57 candidates landed their dream job by the end of the fair in Mumbai and in Delhi respectively!
