Training the bottom rung!

As a fresher, just out of college – the corporate world can be daunting!

Nothing is ‘text-book’ familiar and you start to wonder, just what in the world you learned in college…..

For some of us, team-work, synergy, group-dynamics….. were concepts who’s definitions we memorized in management classrooms – yet only fully understood during a college game or competition…

Who’s coming to campus?

At this time of year, most graduating students have one single agenda.

Getting that C.V. in order and vying for every campus placement opportunity that comes along…

At such times, it’s reassuring to know if your College can draw big organisations to campus…. and with them, those lucrative salary offers and plush office environments.

Last year, around this time – check out the big guns that arrived at Amplify Mindware, BVU

Let’s not forget that the 2008-09 placement season was calamitous for the entire Indian academic community. Even the IIMs and IITs were not spared. The IT industry put up a “frozen” façade, with few recruiting at all!

Management schools just about remained afloat in such tough competitive circumstances.

Despite the odds – Amplify got home-run after home-run, with companies recruiting Amplify students despite recession. Around 80% placements were done prior to the season ending.

The trick was – Innovation. Here’s the game -plan the institute followed:

  • Focus on Niche -areas : Amplify identified very fast the sectors which were really providing placement opportunities in this tough season (Telecommunications, Insurance, Pharma and KPO), and focused very closely on them, dipping straight into the honey-pots instead of just buzzing around. The result? – Amplify’s technical students were quickly lapped up by these companies!
  • Focus on specific geographical areas: In coordination with Amplify, a leading multinational company created a brand-new special “branch management trainee” scheme under which students were offered a fast-track position to work from their hometowns and grow the company’s business in these areas. Companies find it difficult to get professionally trained personnel to work in small towns – so Amplify provided the students – and it was a win-win situation for all involved!
  • Prep students well: Amplify students undergo a continuously revised, balanced and rigorous program that ensures a thorough understanding of management concepts. Students hone their existing managerial, leadership, team, analytical and interpersonal skills through various ongoing assignments. Workshops on career counseling, business etiquette, group discussions and interview skills, verbal and non-verbal communication skills are a regular feature at Amplify.

So, that’s three reasons more for why Amplify is a good choice if you’re looking to secure a job on graduation!

What’s special about your college?

So, most of us have some sort of sentiment attached to our respective colleges….

Sometimes its the cafeteria sandwiches that we remember, other times, its that one amazing faculty member that made college seem like a second home – and most often its that group of friends that you practically live with for four years and then one fine day you all part ways and sort of grow up!!!

So, during my 11th and 12th years of Science in St. Xaviers, Mumbai – I was a Xavierite – AND BOY – did I take pride in it!

Strutted around campus every morning, feeling like I was the cat’s whiskers and there was no better place to be.

But after HSC it became clear that the world was much larger …. our college gang parted ways and after the initial manic efforts to stay in touch… we sort of move on!

Now, I’m at a new college (Amplify Mindware), with a new set of friends, another special faculty member that makes college feel like a second home…. and a whole new set of career options in the IT field available to me.

Andddd…. believe it or not a new identity!!! Here’s a riddle to discovering it…

What’s a circle, triangle and square at the same time….

Keep watching this space to know why the college chose this identity…

and feel free to share…. what is your special college identity???

Australia calling…..

I’m totally excited!!! In a few days, I’m off to Australiaaaaaaaa!!!!

It’s beaches, babes and lots of sightseeing dude!

or Mate! as they say ….

Oh, and yeah of course – I’ll be finishing up my IT degree as well.

And it was super easy, the college that I’m currently studying with – Amplify Mindware in Pune – has a study abroad programme where their students can opt to  finish their last year in QUT  (Queensland University of Technology) – all credits points transfer and once you’re done with your fourth semester – voila! you graduate with an International Bachelor’s degree  in IT.

Of course, you can stay on and opt for their Master’s programme as well – and yes, they do give their Bachelor students preference! Moreover, you can complete their Master’s degree in a reduced time period of one year only.

Imagine that.

Beaches, babes and an excellent IT course!

So a little more about my  University….

QUT has over 40,000 students, including nearly 5000 international students from more than 100 countries.

cool nah?!

What’s more – QUT ranks amongst top 3 Australian universities in the discipline of Information Technology.

So, dude, what are you waiting for – get going…. and you could be making Australia you’re next home…..!

Campus tour of an IT college

Visited Bharathi Vidyapeeth’s Pune campus for the first time this weekend to check out their latest IT/tech courses that are offered by an institute called Amplify Mindware. Here’s a pic of the college building, it’s the perfect location for an IT student. Set bang in the middle of Pune, otherwise known as the ‘Oxford of the East’ owing to the number of colleges that have sprouted around the city – Amplify Mindware students benefit immensely owing to the number of companies and corporations that visit BVU’s campus every year.

Once we arrived, we were taken on a short tour of the building.

Amplify Mindware classrooms were  state of the art, fully equipped rooms, ideal for teaching tech-related courses!

Check out this image I managed to click on the sly  – not bad for a phone camera eh?

Nice nah!?

And what’s more, they take only a limited number of students per batch, ensuring that each student gets the individual attention that you need for an IT course.

During the campus tour, we were introduced to some of the college’s faculty members – and boy! was I impressed. I mean dude, the guy that owns the Tata Sky patent teaches here.

A large majority of them have over thirty years of experience and yet they’ve struck a balance and included several young faculty members as well.

The tour ended with an informal chat session with some of their students and that sealed the deal for me. They were all so confident and thrilled with the course.

They also shared the benefits that Amplify Mindware gives its students  – ensuring that they have an edge in the market.

What more can I say yaar, if you’re looking at a first class IT/Management course – then you should definitely be checking out Amplify Mindware.
