A tale of Ashoka’s successful placement amidst the pandemic
Priyanka Chandhok, Assistant Vice President, Career Development Office, @ashokauniv writes about Career Development Office placing Ashoka students with their dream companies successfully amidst the pandemic.
An excerpt from the piece:
Life since March 2020 hasn’t been the same for any of us, of course, but in many ways, my team managed to transition to working from home exceptionally well. Of course, there were roadblocks and difficulties, but there was also always a solution looming large at the horizon and we knew, as a team, we would make it through.
Perhaps because we managed to nurture these interpersonal dynamics, we could pull off a year of successful placements, considering how the market had been impacted. Last year, we placed students across 100+ organisations, along with working on constantly rethinking our outreach and engagement strategies with a more COVID-sensitive focus.
For the 2021 graduating batch almost 300 students have been placed in over 100 organisations including A.T Kearney, Accenture, Airtel Payments Bank, Arthur D. Little, BCG, Deloitte USI, Deutsche Bank CIB, EY, Fractal Analytics, Gartner, Genpact, Google, Grant Thornton, IIFL, Infoedge, Kotak Investment Banking, KPMG, Redseer Consulting, McKinsey, WNS and Zomato. In addition, several others are being evaluated by organisations.
So while our jobs may have their ups and downs, at the end of the day, the joy of connecting Ashoka students with their dream companies and roles makes all of that worthwhile.
