Campus placements are comparatively easier than off campus placements. Less number of candidates makes campus placement easy for students as students studying in that institute only are eligible for such job opportunities. The companies arrive within educational institutes to provide jobs to students pursuing or in the stage of completing b.tech. and select students depending on their requirements. For students who have less opportunities for campus placement have no other option then off campus placements. For off campus placements students have to hunt for a job themselves and it may take a long time. This article will explain the various ways to get an offcampus job:
RESUME: First of all make an impressive Resume which is the basic foundation of job hunt and a critical job search tool. Recruiters will know about you from your resume or CV.
