After the first round of placements in Delhi University ended in December, most colleges have seen a considerable improvement in job offers received by their undergraduate students.
Stating that this has been a "good year" as far as placements are concerned, Dr Arvind Kumar, placement in-charge at Lady Shri Ram College, said, "More than 20 companies including Deloitte and McKinsey, among others, have already visited the campus and almost 30 per cent of students who want jobs have been placed."
While the average salary package for LSR students is around Rs 6.5 lakh per annum, the highest package offered so far has been Rs 12 lakh per year.
"Apart from consulting and audit firms, media houses, entertainment channels and production houses like Balaji Telefilms and Star TV have also come here for recruitment," Kumar said.
The college, this year, has also been paying special attention to placements for students with disabilities and workshops have been conducted to help them with the recruitment process. "Owing to an innovation project on corporate social responsibility, undertaken by our students and funded by the university, we got in touch with various companies and realised that there was a need to pay more attention to students with disabilities," Kumar said.
At Sri Venkateswara, another South Campus college, almost 77 students have been placed with good pay packages.
"Last year, the highest annual pay package was Rs. 5.5 lakh. This year, the highest pay package offered is Rs 6.5 lakh per year," Dr Pratima Vyas, teacher-in-charge for placements at Sri Venkateswara College, said.
North Campus colleges have also seen a good response from companies. More than 200 students of Shri Ram College of Commerce have already been placed, with the highest offer standing at Rs 14 lakh per year.
