A company gave a placement talk in college today.

First, they talked about their company's facts and figures, which no one was interested in.

Second, they talked about Amazon and Jeff's vision, AirBnB and their revolutionary idea, more than their own company and products.

Third, they showed some testimonial videos of their employees and customers.

"What the fuck is going on?" I thought. We were there to get information about a placement test.

Buzzwords started coming in. Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and what not.

Last 15 minutes, a guy came. He talked about test date, test format and test topics, finally.

An hour and half wasted for 15 minutes of information.

Fuck placement talks.

    This company came for recruitment at my college and it literally rejected people who didn't attend their seminar ๐Ÿ˜…

    Don't be surprised, people. All company HRs want when they come to colleges is to feel like "DA BOSS" and have their egos satisfied. Working in the placement cell has opened my eyes that colleges worship recruiters (which needn't be done; have some balls, college) and students are caught in the crossfire.

    Been in placement cell too. The pain is when college decides to put some additional filter (e.g. candidates < 9.5 GPA not allowed to sit for the process).

    Never been so frustrated to see stupid people getting offers 4x better than mine because they decided to get good on paper instead of teaching themselves how to code.

    Just bcos u can mug up what the difference linked lists and array is doesn't mean u can do good. Fml

    @ceee to maintain the reputation of the college they did it, our placement head told us (the placement coordinators) that it was condition of company.
    We realised it was put by college after we got to know same company took ppl of the lower GPA too from some other college.

    @hiTesh woah. And what 9.5 and above! What the hell is this. Is it class 10th or what ? And how many people get 9.5 above ๐Ÿค can't believe the number is more than 5 or 6 ๐Ÿค

    Never expected to get a job from those company placement at uni as I knew no good will come out from it. 95% reprsentatives had no idea how did technology worked and just throwing out buzz words and bullshit.

    Just started talking to one representative from a company, purposely told him I am java dev and he goes on saying then you should be an expert in javascript as well.
    They had no idea how different was java and javascript.
