Keeping in mind the present Coronavirus situation, the University Grants Commission has issued suggestions with respect to the functioning of universities post lockdown.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) on Wednesdayreleased a fresh set of guidelines on how universities and colleges should function after the lockdown ends. The guidelines suggested a special emphasis on ensuring learning while ensuring social distancing. It was suggested that colleges open from August for enrolled students and for the new batch, admissions begin in August and classes by September.

The universities shall follow a six day week once they resume operations, as per the recommendations of the UGC panel. For laboratory or practical experiments, students will be allowed to work through virtual laboratories.

Here are some other suggestions by the UGC:

— The universities and colleges have been advised to hold their final year or terminal semester examination from 1st July to 15th July. They can declare their results at the end of the month.

— For first and second-year students, the varsity can conduct exams from July 16-30 and announce results by 14th August, if possible. If not, the students will be graded based on the internal assessments of the past two semesters.

— Universities have also been asked to use innovative modes of examinations and assessments. The duration of exams will be reduced from three hours to two hours. This might be a one-time move.

— The universities have been asked to develop virtual classroom and video conferencing facility and all teaching staff to be trained with the use of technology. Further, all the content of universities will be uploaded in digital form on its official website to be accessed anytime, as per the guidelines of the UGC panel.

— Faculty would be thoroughly trained in information communication technology (ICT) skills as well as online teaching tools. Teachers will be asked to publish 25 per cent of the syllabus through online teaching and the rest through face to face traditional classrooms.

— Every university will establish a COVID-19 cell for handling student grievances related to exams and academic activities during the coronavirus pandemic. The UGC has also announced to establish a helpline for monitoring student grievances in this regard. Among other immediate measures, attendance will be granted to all students for this period.

— The UGC also suggested universities to devise a proforma to record the travel/ stay history of the staff and students for the period when they were away from the university due to lockdown.

Adding fuel to the start-up versus Multi-national Corporation (MNC) debate, we discuss the pros and cons that both the entities have on offer for college interns.

“IIM Lucknow has a median salary of X INR!” 

“Great, but IIM Calcutta recorded (X+Y) INR last year.” 

“That’s nothing, FMS (Faculty of Management Studies) Delhi went all the way to (X+Y+Z) INR this placement season.”

More often than not, most of us have had similar conversations, which perfectly encapsulate the current rat-race involving institutions, companies and jobs in the country.

With the increasing number of access points of good quality higher education in the country, coupled with innovative methods of teaching going far beyond the pages of the academic curriculum, the past two decades have witnessed an enormous rise in competition among graduates and post graduates for jobs, both in the private and the public sector. 

This cut-throat competition necessitates the need for job applicants to stand out from the crowd if they wish to get a decent working position in a – preferably creamy layer – company, which means they need to stack up their curriculum vitae, or resume, the most prominent catalyst instrumental in landing them their dream job in their dream company, the importance for which was aptly described by writer Mokokoma Mokhonoana as, “Give a typical employee a million and he is most likely to use the money to print his CV on fancier paper”.

An ideal Curriculum Vitae (CV) of a fresh graduate or post-graduate contains, apart from academic and extra-curricular achievements, a list of organisations or companies where he/she spent time attempting to learn the particular trade, or in other words, worked as an intern. This list of internships gives the prospective employer examining the CV a fair idea of the applicant’s capability and area of expertise, and also a stamp of validation. “Sometimes your marks might not be able to land you a seat in a prestigious university abroad, or a prestigious company, but the right amount of internships at the right places surely can,” said a University of Delhi, Professor, on the condition of anonymity.

One’s CV undoubtedly holds a huge stake and influence in one’s future, and thus, an undergraduate student needs to take calculated decisions while choosing one’s preferred places of internship. With the country riding on a remarkable rise of economic and industrial growth, numerous successful start-ups have popped up, while already existing corporate firms have registered gains. A huge dilemma which students, mostly freshers, face, is making the choice between interning at a growing start-up or interning at an established multinational corporate. Both entities have certain distinct characteristics which might be a stimulant for some, and a deterrent for others.

Writing for Business World, Pulkit Jain describes start-ups as comprising of “casual wear, no-formalities-involved-group-discussions , no fixed working hours, fresh and flexible” while for MNCs he writes “formal wear, sophisticated meetings, nine to five on the dot working hours, prim and proper,” thus driving home the significant gulf between the work atmosphere and living spaces of both entities.

To the inquisitive and innovative intern with an entrepreneurial bent of mind, the flexible and out-of-the-box attitude of the start-up would be more appealing – though opining that MNCs do not receive such types of interns at all, would be a wrong assumption to make. Working at a start-up also allows for more widespread exposure to the corporate space and atmosphere for a new entrant, due to the relative absence of an in-built hierarchy. The intern will get to juggle a wider variety of roles, sometimes even highly critical ones, as opposed to the MNCs which mostly have a distinct horizontal separation of numerous departments and a distinct vertical hierarchy, and thus will offer a distinct and smaller role. 

But a valuable point to be noted is that working in a smaller role will allow for far more specialisation in that particular area of expertise and shall allow the entrant to perform well in similar roles in the future. A significant number of people would prefer to learn specific skills in depth, with a security net, one at a time, instead of trying to juggle and gain experience in multiple areas of expertise at once, though conversely the latter would have a considerable amount of takers too.

One area in which the MNC has sole bragging rights over the start-up is brand name and recognition – not taking into consideration extremely successful unicorn start-ups like Flipkart, Swiggy, Byju’s etc. While the start-up might provide an intern with an unorthodox set of ideas and new working styles, something which the MNC will not, it cannot be denied that work or internship experience at a well-established conglomerate, say Goldman Sachs, or Deloitte, weighs far heavier than one at a start-up, on a CV, and might turn out to be a clinical deal clincher when the candidate applies for a full-time job in the future. In fact, interning at such a place also increases the chance of the candidate being offered a job at the same company after his/her graduation.

A start-up allows more freedom in terms of expression of ideas, as opposed to the largely orthodox and time-tested work methods applied in the conglomerate structure. Thus, the risk factor in MNCs is low while its significantly high in start-ups. Outcomes are extreme in the start-up world, and a large proportion of them fail in the initial stages itself. Out of the small proportion which do manage to stay afloat, an ever smaller proportion is ultimately able to rise to sub-unicorn and unicorn levels, albeit in a short time. This can be beneficial for interns and new entrants who were a part of the start-up in the initial stages, who might get top designations in a very short while. On the other hand, in MNCs, the rise to the top of the company takes several years.

Every college student has different ambitions and attitudes, some are ready to take risks, some want a secure future, some wish to build their own company, some wish to work in their dream company. Interning at a conglomerate and at a start-up nurture these different paths for them. Japneet Singh, a Computer Science undergraduate at IIT Delhi, opines, “It’s not right or wrong to choose a particular option between the two, both offer valuable learning experiences and I think one should make the choice based on one’s needs and ambitions”.

This piece aims to answer the following questions- do these courses guarantee a job? What’s the reason behind so many students not finding a decent job? What is the merit of these long, hard years of education?

In the Indian education system, the success of the education imparted is measured by the size of the package, and in the Indian society the prestige of a person is as big as their cabinet. This desire has set a generalised pattern for all, and it uplifts those courses that guarantee job placement. Hence, 9,35,741 students appeared for the JEE MAINS this year or why children are often pressurised by their parents to take Science, because “kaafi scope hai na.”

Students face tremendous pressure to first get extraordinary great marks to beat the cut-offs, then do extremely well in their entrances for their masters or carry the enormous burden of their undergraduate just for landing a job. Each level of education is just a steppingstone to a job. Yet, we face one of the biggest unemployment challenges ever. How can a system which has made children as young as twelve internalise the need for a good job, fail at that same thing?

As per United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), over half of the Indian students will not be eligible for 21st Century jobs and here are few reasons for it:


1. Increased competition

The days when college was only accessible to the rich and elite are over. College has become more affordable and much more competitive. This happens due to the wave of the popular profession. In the 1980s, Law was considered the profession that gets students a job, in the 1990s it was replaced by civil services and medical practice. In the 2000s, Engineering took off and now it is Chartered Accountancy. The result?

A record number of college applications across the nation, resulting in more college graduates, and thus, more competition for the limited number of jobs available on the market.

The secondary effect of this is that the days when having a degree alone would get you a job are over. The “prestige” that comes with having a degree has now become diluted with the rampant number of students graduating in that highly concentrated field.


2. Little or no work experience

This about the student’s famous catch 22 position. This situation arises when they have no job experience, yet all the jobs out there require it if you want to apply. So, they can’t get a job because they have no experience and in order to get a job, they need a job for work experience, but they can’t get a job without work experience and the cycle viciously continues.

One way to get out of this cycle is to not pass up on jobs that you may think are beneath you. Swallow your pride and take those jobs or intern for free at a company you would like to work at. Always keep in mind that jobs can lead to other jobs.

3. Lack of networking

Many people get jobs through referrals. Statistics show this is how a majority of people get their jobs. The reason why word of mouth is so effective is that it cuts through all the worry of whether, or not, this person can do the job.

If somebody has been working for a company for some time, then that employee knows what it takes to succeed, and if that employee knows somebody who can do it, it’s an easy fit. The employer will trust the employee referring the new candidate and the new candidate will most likely get the job.


4.The age-old syllabus

It’s very likely that if you do the same course as your parents, the syllabus covered by both of you would be the same. So much so, that even the books would be the same despite the rampant technology growth. There’s a huge difference between the job that students want, and the course taught to them. Their course even lacks the skills required to handle 21st Century jobs. Hence, the conventional pattern never breaks.


5.Lack of personal and social skills

The biggest myth is that a degree guarantees a job, however in many cases, students have landed jobs due to their great interview skills or lifted attitude. But those skills are never taught, let alone talked about. As per a study conducted by BridgeLabz, more than one-third of the engineering students were non-employable and the biggest reason for it was lack of self-confidence. In India, as many as fifty three percent will leave secondary school without getting the skills needed for a decent job.


India, in particular, has to worry about its current and future unemployment too. According to the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), its unemployment rate stood at 8.45 percent. As more sectors fall into the throes of the ongoing slowdown, like auto, followed by telecom and IT, joblessness is all set to rise. Three major technology giants, Capgemini, Infosys, and Cognizant are cutting as many as five hundred senior-level jobs. Further, the future of as many as one lakh employees of BSNL’s vendors are in limbo, as the telecom operator is yet to pay 200 billion INR in dues.

There is no doubt, that the education system is flawed, there is a much greater emphasis on marks than practicality. And it is evident, that a dire change is how students approach higher education is required but the dreading economy doesn’t help their case either.

The SSCBS placement season records the highest package at INR 16.25 lakhs with gross value over INR 5.4 crores and average package being 6.6 LPA.

Shaheed  Sukhdev College  of  Business  Studies (CBS) is a premier undergraduate management college under the aegis of the University of Delhi (DU) offering Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS)BBA (Financial  Investment Analysis), B.Sc. (H) Computer Science and Post Graduate Diploma in Cyber Security and Law (PGDCSL).

The admission to BMS and BBA (FIA) is through the highly competitive Joint Admission Test (DU JAT) with an intake ratio of 1:140.

The first phase of the placement season of 2018-19 at CBS culminated successfully in November. The college witnessed a participation of 17 companies. KPMG and Bain Capability Centre were the largest recruiters with 16 and 15 offers respectively. The average package amounted to INR 6.6 LPA while the highest package offered was INR 16.25 LPA. The highlight of this phase was FTI consulting offering a Frontline Consulting role. This phase also saw 3 companies from the league  of  the  Big  4, namely EY, KPMG  and  Deloitte. Other reputed names such as Verity Knowledge Solutions, Ken Research,  Magicpin, DSV Air & Sea, Times Internet,  Grant Thornton, etc. also became a part of the season.

CBS again saw multiple prestigious companies expressing their interest and faith in the quality and exposure that the students held. Companies offered a diverse set of profiles for the students this season which included roles like Front End Consulting, Analyst, Market Research, Deal Advisory, Government  Risk  and  Operations  and  also  jobs  from  the  Investment Banking Division.

But the Placement Cell did not only facilitate recruitments, they also invited companies to hire interns. For instance, Goldman Sachs had visited the campus to hire interns for their Investment Banking Division

It is important that the wider placement culture of DU too take cognisanse of these recruitments and make an effort to get every graduate placed in diverse fields before they leave the varsity space.

The ­ corridors of almost every DU college have one thing in common this time of the year –  all of them are abuzz with throngs of final year students anxiously awaiting their next interview, riffling through resumes one last time, and trying not to sweat through their fancy formals.

The placement season is upon us, and fortunately, the University of Delhi is generous with its college employment resources. All DU students can apply through the Central Placement Cell of DU, while colleges like Hansraj College, Miranda House, Hindu College, and Sri Venkateshwara College, among others, have their own placement cells. Below are a few pointers you should be aware of, before you sit for an interview:

  • Most companies follow a 3-step recruitment procedure consisting of aptitude tests, group discussions, and personal interviews.


  • Resume building is the key to landing a job interview – attention to detail, emphasis on what the applicant brings to the table, including co-curriculars, projects, and internships, and a powerful cover letter to accompany the resume are crucial. One needs to be well versed with the job profile being offered and the mission statement of the company. On the day of the interview, multiple copies of the resume must be kept handy, for the perusal of the interviewers.


  • Personal Interviews require a fair amount of preparation. Clothing, hygiene, and body language are the paramount preliminary tasks. Additionally, recruiters look for students whose goals and aspirations align with their requirements and work environment of the company. Which is why, it is imperative to understand that if a company is hiring someone with no actual work experience, they’ve sacrificed the return on investment from day one and are effectively paying these college graduates while imparting knowledge and training through their business. Accordingly, they expect proper contribution and sincerity. People often overlook the importance of asking questions during interviews, which gives the employer an impression of apathy and lack of enthusiasm. It’s an interaction, not an interrogation!


  • All social media accounts must be cleared of any undesirable or embarrassing data. The sacking of James Gunn from Marvel Studios is an important example of the attention companies pay to their employees’ online presence. To avoid sticky situations, Facebook and Twitter profiles must be maintained respectably!


  • Following up on resume submissions and interviews displays commitment to potential employers. That persistence can help separate one from the rest of the crowd and increase one’s chances of successfully obtaining their ideal first job.

Here is what a 3rd year student at Jesus and Mary College had to say about her experience after being interviewed by Deloitte;

“Before sitting for any placement, the person needs to be well versed with the job profile and the company because recruiters ask questions like “Why Deloitte”. The key is to convince them that you’re the perfect fit for that particular job, and no one else.”

DU Beat wishes all applicants the very best for upcoming campus placement drives!

The University of Delhi (DU) offers students the best kind of exposure they can think of, not only academically but culturally as well.

Situated in the capital of one of the most populated nations, Delhi University has its own share of limelight. It goes without saying that anything that happens in the University, be it the admission process, cultural fests, the records of academic excellence, or even the food spots popular among its students, everything manages to grab the attention of public.

Delhi University started with only three colleges being affiliated to it and now has more than 60 colleges whose students are awarded degrees by the University. Students from all over the country apply to study in the colleges of DU. This year, over 3 lakh students applied for admission in the under graduated programmes. It is only natural in such circumstances to expect an environment that takes into consideration the interests of various groups and communities and gives them a place to thrive in.

The fact that so many students apply for admissions here is a major premise contributing to the high cut-offs. Academically speaking, the colleges are able to get students who are among the best in the whole nation. In this way, the whole process teaches a student ‘survival’, a by-product of studying in one of the best universities of the nation. You will find a lot of like-minded individuals to share healthy competition with, which will only help motivate you to do better. Apart from having a reputation of housing the “country’s toppers,” Delhi University also offers you the wisdom and experience of some of the most accomplished and oldest Professors in the country, all within the capacity of the walls of your college building.

Coming to the cultural aspects, the various societies that function in the colleges are perhaps one of the best ways to learn and experience what team work actually is. By joining a society, one does not only get to perform but also gets to practice in a simulation that is somewhat similar to the corporate world. The experience and pleasure derived from the society activities, and representing your college at different levels teaches you more than the confined walls of classes ever can. Some societies and cells like Enactus, Placement Cell, etc offer you real work experience that adds as an effective CV booster.

One very important factor contributing to the fact that DU indeed offers the best exposure is also the number of famous and eminent alumni that it has provided to the nation. For example: Ramachandra Guha and Amitav Ghosh from St. Stephens College, Satish Kaushik and Naveen Patnaik from Kirori Mal College, Arun Jaitley from Shri Ram College of Commerce, and the list continues. The paths that these people created long back are still alive in the legacy of greatness they have left behind in the corridors of their respective colleges.

placement report (2)   The Corporate Relations & Placements team at FMS suggests certain pointers to placement cells at undergrad colleges:

  1. Leveraging Alumni Base

All the colleges in Delhi University have a very strong alumni base. FMS, with its 61 year old history, has 200+ CXOs in the industry. By having an active Alumni Relations Society, we are able to help the alumni continue to connect with their alma mater, and they in turn, end up hiring from the vast talent pool of the college.
  1. Multiple Touch Points with Companies

Rather than just having companies over for recruitment activities, we involve them more by having Guest Lectures by Senior Professionals, and Workshops and Competitions for the students. This helps the students to get more acquainted with the company, and the company is also able to gauge the talent pool in multiple ways, before making a decision to come down for placements.
  1. Focused Placement Preparation

We have a world class faculty that makes sure that they cover all aspects of academics leading to Placements. Apart from this, we have content societies for every domain (Marketing, Finance, HR, etc.) which are completely student run. Their purpose is two-fold; they act both as an interest group and a preparation medium, focused mostly on essential knowledge for placements. This helps in reinforcing the students’ concepts and hence maximizes the number that a company hires from our campus.   Inputs from the Media Relations Cell and Corporate Relations & Placements, FMS.

As placement season strikes the university, the want for being appropriately dressed during the interview becomes a vital necessity. First impressions are indeed instant and play a major role in dictating the final outcome. Here are few styles that might solve the problems of deciding the perfect interview outfit for students.

  • Following the conventional and boring trend during dressing up for interviews is perhaps the safest one. It helps in reiterating your seriousness for the job role offered. Avoiding experiments and playing the safe game can never go wrong! The traditional business suits, consisting of solid or subtle patterned collared shirts of light colors paired with dark shaded formal pants gives a typical formal look. However, the shirt should be buttoned and it should be tucked in or fall just below the waistline. Formal Blazer or jacket adds a classic and professional edge to the outfit.

  • Closely fitted ‘versatile’ pencil skirt, paired up with a tucked in formal blouse or a buttoned down light colored collared shirt prove to be the most classic work wear.  You can always play safe by keeping a combination of white shirt and black skirt, but trying pastel or neutral shades of shirts can prove to be quite reliable for serious business as well. Kitten heels or office ballet flats of coordinating colors complete the impeccable professional look.

  • A conventional dress suit is perfect for giving a chic and sophisticated look. Opting for a formal blazer helps solve the problem of being underdressed. Avoiding sleeveless, short dresses and plunging necklines is a must while creating a good first impression for the interviewer. Mid heels or ballet flats always creates the much-required impact. Avoid flashy accessories under all circumstances.

  • For boys, opting for the traditional business attire helps in enhancing the business credentials. Matched conservative suits, consisting of white shirts, solid black, navy blue or grey colored formal jacket or vest, traditional patterned and medium width tie with a belt of coordinating color. Black laced up leather shoes and a formal watch adds an impressive touch to the attire.

  • Another way of dressing for a placement is opting for a collared shirt, preferably white, under a V-neck or crested sweater. The Sweater may be of a dark grey, navy blue, brown and black shade and should be worn with slim fit trouser of a coordinating shade. Again, formal laced up business shoes helps complete the desired look.
