After a spate of student tragedies, good news is buzzing again on ISM-Dhanbad campus with global head-hunters offering plum placements to final-year candidates.
Oilfield services major Schlumberger on Tuesday picked up 15 students, offering annual packages between Rs 12 lakh and 18 lakh.
Associate professor of computer science engineering and placement officer Chiranjeevi Kumar said three had been picked for fieldwork at Rs 18 lakh per annum per head, while the rest would get desk jobs with a yearly package of Rs 12 lakh each.
Sharing their profiles, he said seven were from BTech petroleum engineering, three from petroleum engineering dual degree programme, and one each from BTech mining engineering, integrated MSc Tech (applied geophysics), MTech mineral exploration, MTech (applied geology) and MSc streams.
On Wednesday, software giant Microsoft snapped up five students, offering each a package of Rs 16 lakh a year.
Oracle, which will make its debut in ISM, will come visiting on September 26 and 27. Exchanger Service Private Limited will interview aspirants on September 27, Tata Motors the day after, while Future Fast and Jindal Steel and Power will visit the campus on October 1 and 3.
Computer science student Rachana Nandan raised the bar in July when she was snapped up by Facebook with a package of Rs 56 lakh per annum.
“Placements look very bright. We expect students to get better packages compared to last year. Inflation is a factor behind fatter packages,” Kumar said.
