A Big Question

Sampada Kulkarni

The most frequently asked question whenever an aspirant seeks for an admission for higher studies is about placements. VESIM gives the utmost priority to quality placements. The students with their abilities and skillsets are matched with the appropriate job descriptions. The students in our course get place accordingly as per their interests, skills & abilities. Major companies like General Mills, Amazon, Walplast and many high profile MNCs come to the campus to select the best students appropriate for their job responsibilities. The highest package offered so far is around 14-15 lacs, The lowest is around 3 lacs and the average package is around 6.7 lacs per annum. The roles being offered generally vary as per the courses offered but it starts from executives to managerial options. We also have summer internships during our first and second year where mostly all of us get place either internally through our placement Cell or externally through our contacts.

Let me tell you about the Career Guidance and Placement Cell of our VESIM, which is termed as the Green Cell. There are around 26 students from both, MMS and PGDM who are part of this cell as Green cell representatives. Every representative has few students under him/her as mentees. Thus, these green cell student mentors help those mentees in knowing their career interest and goals also the weaknesses so that they can be helped and guided to get a right job profile and right company. Apart from that, the alumni of the college also mentor students by giving tips on how to crack the interviews. Alumni come and conduct Mock GD and PI sessions which is the most crucial phase in cracking any placement interviews. Green cell also focuses on conducting Soft Skills training workshops which help individuals for building self-confidence and enhancing the communication skills. In addition to this, Green cell also hosts an event called III league every year. III stands for “Industry Interface Interaction”. Wherein many corporate people working at managerial levels in MNCs from different industries like FMCG, Banking & Finance, Retail, Analytics, IT, Advertising visit our campus. Various slots are being assigned to each speaker throughout the Day to have a dialogue with students. The specialty of this event is that no speakers’ Identity is reviled beforehand. The idea behind this is that students should not have prejudice about different managerial roles in different industries with respect to HR/Marketing/Operations/Finance. Thus, III league helps students to get better insights so that they can realize where their interest lies in building their career and also offers a platform to make good corporate contacts with like-minded people.

In this way, VESIM guides us in shaping and grooming ourselves to get right internships and right jobs to build a bright career.
