VISAKHAPATNAM: Over 3,000 students from 68 colleges in Vizianagaram, Srikakulam and Visakhapatnam districts are participating in the two-day mega job mela-2011 being organised by the Avanthi group of educational institutions at Avanthi Engineering College, Chrukupally, near Tagarapuvalasa.

Addressing students after inaugurating the mela on Saturday, district Collector J. Syamala Rao asked the students to face the interview well, free from tension and with confidence.

“There is nothing you can do at this stage, except keeping yourself cool and calm and face the interview confidently,” he said. He also asked the students who did not make it this time not to be disheartened but learn from the mistakes.

He also advised students who can afford to pursue higher education to appear for GATE and GRE, for “the job you get after B.Tech and the job after PG are different.”

They should decide it immediately. Nothing was unachievable if they knew how to face the interview and prepare well for the tests. And there were also many experts who were now ready to provide guidance to the aspirants, he pointed out.

‘A hard task'

Chairman of Avanthi group and Bheemunipatnam MLA M. Srinivasa Rao, in his speech, admitted that production of engineering graduates was an easier task than to get them placed in some job or the other. The purpose of engineering education would be defeated if graduates were produced without employment opportunities, he felt, adding that teaching and employment were his dual objectives. He thanked the representatives of corporate houses for visiting the campus to conduct selections.

Director of Avanthi group B. Satyam, in his report, said that 25 corporate houses, including Wipro, Satyam, Infotech, Varun, Bajaj, Technosoft, Millennium, Miracle and others were offering as many as 1,000 jobs. “Some 5,000 students from 68 colleges have registered themselves for the mela,” he said.
