How to start your career after
Are you graduating this year or the next and planning to start a career? Do yourself a favour. Take responsibility for your career instead of relying on your college or anyone else.

Campus placements restrict you to a limited number of opportunities. Off campus not only opens you to the world of diverse opportunities but also makes you self-reliant. As you apply off-campus, you get free interview practice and enhance your knowledge and confidence levels.
First, get your resume and certificates ready. Next, list your favourite companies to target even if they are scheduled to meet you on campus. Find like-minded friends and look for placement drives and job fairs.
Did you get a PPO?:
Internships strengthen your resume. Apart from campus-driven internships, look for off-campus opportunities. You are likely to learn more and may even get a PPO (pre-placement offer).

If you are debating between the cool five-person startup and a big company, choose the branded company for your first job unless you have entrepreneurial ambitions. Large companies have structured processes to help you learn basic professional skills. Also, a big brand on your resume works wonders for the future.
