Early placement trends from top campuses in the state indicate that the appetite to recruit large numbers remains. According to a Times of India report, Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) on Thursday announced that 3,934 offers were given to its students by three companies — Accenture, Wipro and Cognizant. This is higher than 3,603 jobs offered last year during a three-day placement process.
The report adds that among departments of Anna University, Accenture recruited 204 students and offered to pay an average of Rs 3.5 lakh per annum. Infosys is visiting on September 14 (Saturday) and early indications suggest they may recruit nearly 200 from this campus at the same pay structures.
Placements are currently on at PSG and Amrita universities in Coimbatore with Wipro, Accenture, IBM, Cognizant and Infosys sharing the first day slots at PSG. Campuses like SRM and SASTRA in Thanjavur are preparing for placements in the coming weeks, with tech titan TCS expected to recruit large numbers from both. TCS may also visit Government College of Technology in Coimbatore.
