Bank on campus with job offers

The placement cell of Kolhan University (KU) is banking on a piece of good news to win over its students.

The cell has joined hands with India’s largest private bank. ICICI Bank will organise a campus interview to recruit trainee sales officers on May 15. Interested students will have to be present at Graduate School College for Women, Jamshedpur, for the interview on Thursday.

“This is the first success for the placement cell. Till 2009 when the colleges were under Ranchi University, the headhunters were only BPOs. Though the salary package might not be plum, it will open opportunities for students in the banking sector,” said Sunit Kumar, placement cell in-charge.

Once a student is hired and gets the appointment letter, he/she will have to undergo a month-long residential training at ITM University in four different places — Raipur, Noida, Warangal and Vadodra. This will be followed by a two-month-long on-job training at the place where he/she will be posted.

Asked about the pay package, placement cell in-charge Kumar said: “The cost-to-company (CTC) will not be very high. For those who will be placed in metro cities will take home a salary of Rs 1.79 lakh per annum, while others will have to settle for Rs 1.55 lakh. But, what is important here is the first break..”

Students are also upbeat. “If there is one bank today, more will follow soon. The start has been good, but we need more subject-oriented jobs,” said Aakash Jha, a final-year commerce student of Jamshedpur Workers’ College.
