Placement positions offer to students
The concept of placement is a bit different in USA. First of all, it is not quite acquainted with the term ‘placement’ and rather is more familiar with on-campus recruitment.
In USA, every university has a Career Service Centre that will assist the students in getting jobs, preparing for interviews, providing options for internships, giving employment options while studying inside the campus and many such allied activities.
However, companies that visit the campuses of the USA universities will never hire the students for full-time. The students will rather be given internships and during this period, the company will judge the work of the hired student for few weeks or months. After optimum satisfaction received from the work will a company hire for full-time.
Organization of Career Fairs and Online Job Portal
Usually, the Topmost colleges and universities of USA have tie-ups with many Fortune 500 companies and this is the main reason that the students prefer to join any such USA university in the hope of getting recruited by any one of these companies.
Sometimes, a ‘Career Fair’ is being organized by the University Career Centre where the students can drop their curriculum vitae so that the companies can connect with them later on or even at the spot of the fair as well.
A facility of online job portal is also available that requires the students to spend some amount and keep in touch with the best companies for jobs. What’s more, the students can even get their H1B sponsor as well.
However, no matter how prospective the universities may be, the students will have to put in extra efforts in order to grab a good job, internship or scholarship.
