More than 500 students have been hired, with over 25 international offers made, by the end of fifth day of the ongoing placements at IIT Delhi
THE INTERNATIONAL OFFERS
The international offers came from companies in Singapore, Hong Kong, the United States, Netherlands and Japan. Among the international offers, a maximum of six offers were from software giant Microsoft on December 1 when the placement session had started, the institute said. More than 200 offers, including 20 international ones, were made on the inaugural day itself.
THE NATIONAL OFFERS
Among national recruiters, chipset maker Intel was the leading firm with more than 30 offers.Many government-owned organisations also participated in the placements, including the Indian Space Research Organisation. Several government-owned companies and PSUs are expected to visit the campus for hiring students in the coming days, an official said.
THE OTHER DETAILS
Students also bagged over 150 pre-placement offers (PPOs), of which over 80 were accepted. A few students opted for the deferred placement options available to students interested in pursuing their start-up dreams.
Over 300 organisations across sectors offering over 500 job roles have already registered for placements in the coming few days. Few startups were also represented during the placements.
The institute said it has decided to not release the exact worth of the high-value packages as it was felt that undue publicity to packages devalues national placements over international placements as well as core jobs over finance and consulting jobs.
