With an objective to provide professional mileage for the final year students, the Rotaract Club of Anna University-Trichy, D 3000, organised a five-day training programme followed by two days of interviews in an event called the New Generation Week.
The project, held for the second consecutive year, aimed to secure job placements for students. Certified professionals from different disciplines mentored the aspirants on resume preparation, facing an interview panel, group discussions, corporate awareness and striking a professional attitude.
Twenty of the 80 participants were selected for interview by a panel of industrial experts from the parent club, RC Tiruchirapalli Fort. “One of the panelist, Rtn P Bhaskaran, Director, Special Projects of D 3000 has assured lodging facilities for two selected candidates from disadvantaged families. They have got placement in the civil engineering wing of Cliff Engineering Services and a final-year student has already joined MyTVS after completing his studies,” said Mani Prahaspathy, a past DRR and faculty advisor to the Rotaract club.
Club President V Kethar Eswaran, a III-year CSc student, happy with the success of this exclusive training-cum-talent search, said that 20 students from streams such as Civil (6), Automobile (4), Mechanical (2), Pharma (2), CSc (2) and IT, ECE, Petrochem and Biotech (one each) have been shortlisted for the final round, of which the top 10 will get job placement and internship training in the firms of the parent club Rotarians after completing their final semester exams.
More job openings
The parent club has promised to hold another round of interview for campus hiring by the end of May 2018 after the final semester exams. “Not less than 20 technical graduates will be hired in the Automobile and Mechanical divisions of MyTVS and Rtn J Vinoth has confirmed to us that they will be visiting the college for the recruitment drive,” says Eswaran.
Civil Engineering students have a long-pending grievance that they don’t get internship opportunities. “We took up this issue with the Civil Engineering Association of Tiruchirapalli with the help of Rotary and they have assured us that arrangements will be made for students for industrial training,” he added. The Rotaract club is confident of ushering in a positive change in the profiles of job aspirants with this productive workshop.
