Mumbai | June 30, 2016: Job fairs are today common methodology to recruit freshers at entry level, which has become an active forum for initial screening of potential candidates. For the corporate recruiters, these forum offers an opportunity to reach young talents at terminal velocity—highest possible number of prospects in the shortest possible amount of time under one single roof. And, similarly for aspiring professionals, who are largely students, such job fairs provide a rare opportunity for them to meet multiple employers from varied industry verticals in OPOD (One Place, One Day).
Continuing with the success of organizing two earlier editions of Job-fair, where more than 60 different companies have recruited almost 1200 freshers from various academic and technical background in their mainstream industry activities. And, the institute aspires to provide employment opportunity to thousands in the near vicinity.
“Today I have achieved, what I have always been dreaming of being on my campus. Infosys has been my dream company to work with and Job fair at HKIMSR helped me to achieve my dream,” quipped ecstatic Shankar Shetty, an engineering graduate from Mumbai after getting selected at Infosys during the second edition of job fair.
Not only students from other streams and other colleges, but our own students have got excellent breaks during the job fair.
Said Tushar Devadiga, a student from HKIMSR, “Thanks to my alma mater for creating such a golden opportunity for employment of thousands of students and aspiring professionals in Mumbai. Am delighted to get selected for Axis Bank, an opportunity created during the first edition of job fair.”
This has been a social responsibility for Maharashtra Educational Society to extend employment opportunities to youth across socio-economic status and academic backgrounds.
“What an amazing coordination and arrangements done by the team HK. There are several job fairs that we attend through the year, some of them are politically driven, some may be arranged to earn revenues, but, the one at H K Campus is socially driven. Hat’s off!,” said Sohail Shaikh, HGS International Infotech.
