Jobs available even during pandemic; increase in campus recruitment
Thrissur: Even though coronavirus has resulted in many people losing their jobs, there is some relief as more companies are approaching engineering colleges offering campus placements.
Most of the important engineering colleges with excellent academic standards have over 80 percent placement. Over 30 percent of last year's total recruitment was completed in the last three months. Last year, it was only 25 percent.
Infosys, TCS and Cognizant recruit the most number of employees from engineering colleges in Kerala. They have completed the first stage of campus recruitment. Once these 3 companies complete their placement process, the campus recruitment in Kerala will cross the 50 percent mark.
With the pandemic, two rounds of tests and interviews, placement and work is all done via online. 92 percent of the recruitment is done through work from home.
No reduction in salary package
Though there are a large number of job seekers due to the pandemic, not even one company has reduced the salary package. IT companies are providing internet allowance for working from home. They are recruiting more people than in the previous years.
