Campus interviews, a forethought

February 12, 2019


It is that time of the year when there is joy around the Engineering Colleges as it is time for campus interviews and IT companies conducting online tests for selecting the best candidates. No doubt, every student aspires to get the best company and pay package and dream to achieve big in life.

The issue is these interviews happened just before the 7th semester exams and the results also get announced before the exams begin. What I have observed is that due to these announcements:

  1. The students who get selected become so excited that they become complacent as if they have already graduated and start relaxing and stop concentrating on the upcoming exams.
  2. Those students who do not succeed during this period come under peer pressure and have difficulty in coping up with the pressure due to non-selection weighing on them during examination.

I suggest the organisers of the campus interview to announce the selection results only after the 7th Semester examination are over to ease pressure on the students. By the time the next round of campus interviews happen those students who would not have got selected in the first time would have overcome the pressure and be ready to face the interview better.

I feel this way the students do not lose focus on the 7th semester exams which are equally crucial for improving their average overall score.
