5 Tips for students seeking campus placements

1. Watch out for yourself as it’s not a high school time where you can be dependent on people. The first and foremost important thing would be to look out for yourself by learning, increasing your learnings and skills and not getting totally dependent on the college curriculum.

2. It is a serious time. After the post-graduation, you have to get into a serious placement. It is the beginning of your career, so add more discipline.

3. Get more information from faculty by interacting with them personally. They have a lot of knowledge, information and experience. Try to attain as much knowledge as you can. Clear your concepts with them.  

4. Be selfish. If you are getting an opportunity, don’t just give it away. Whenever any opportunity knocks at your door, just grab it.

5. Make your friends wisely. Fun friends are no longer an option rather they don’t exist.
