For the first time, DAVV organized a 100 per cent virtual campus drive for the outgoing batch due to Covid crisis and the results of a few companies are awaited.
The first phase of campus placement used to begin from June, nonetheless, due to Covid-19 it was started from August, centralized placement cell head Dr Govind Maheshwari told TOI.
Around 200 individual offers have already been bagged in the first phase and the second phase will begin with mass recruiters who are awaited this week. The final year candidates of all courses such as BE, ME, MSc, MTech, etc, from various departments will be sitting in this round.
DAVV has a target of getting at least 100 students placed in core companies followed by mass recruiters and the core companies have a package of over Rs 8 lakh per annum, said centralised placement cell coordinator Dr Nitin Nagar.
“Last year, overall 84 candidates were placed in nine core companies and this year over 18 core companies had come and around 197 candidates were placed in those,” said Nagar.
All the drives and interviews were conducted via virtual mode, therefore, the coordinators were not present for assessment and this time, students had the complete responsibility to ensure that the interview was fine which included the virtual etiquette of the interview.
Companies from Bangalore, Pune, Gurgaon, and Indore were a part of the drive, said centralised placement cell coordinator Avnish Vyas.
