In a first, JNU to start having campus placement from March

New Delhi: Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), for the first time, has rolled out a proposal to commence a central-level campus placement, for the benefit of its students.
Recently, the JNU administration had written to all its schools to appoint one of their faculty members as placement coordinators, who will act as nodal officers for campus placements.
Responding to the direction, the School of Bio-technology has already appointed an assistant professor as coordinator.
"Everyone knows that JNU is the top university. But it is changing in every sector. In some months, the glimpse of a new JNU will be reflected," said a JNU official.
He added that the varsity has 12 schools that provide courses in Arts, Science, Law, research and doctorate, which nurture the future of 8, 500 students.
"As soon we get the final nod, we will appoint a faculty member who will connect directly with students and companies. The procedure in the initial stage, but by March campus placements will start, where we are expecting big pharma companies and R&D firms to participate.
"Our students have to cross many competitions to get admission in the varsity, so their hard work will get a fruitful result through the placements," added the varisity official.
"It was need of the hour because JNU is a renowned university, but did not have an effective placement cell. We want this initiative to be successful and students to get good jobs. Not everyone wants to do PhD and M. Phil, so such placements will benefit students," said a student of the School of Computational and Integrative Sciences at the University.
