Job ke Fundae

EES recently organised “Job Ke fundae” which was a great success. Speakers who had been placed in top- notch companies like BCG, Bain, GS, WorldQuant, Tower Research, Samsung, Intel spoke about the long interview process which includes CV shortlisting, GD sessions, coding tests and long rounds of face-to-face interviews. They also discussed about the type of work and gave some worthy tips to the students who will be sitting for placements. We thank all our speakers for taking out some precious time from their busy schedules and guiding their juniors for a better future.
Those who missed it, here is a short summary -
