Exit Level Engineering Students attend Orientation on Job Placement Preparations
In recent years, the number of College graduates in Oman has been steadily increasing; resulting in a clamor for getting favorable employment in the various companies and agencies within the Sultanate. The competition for landing a job which are preferred by the graduates has become fiercer. However, some graduates, upon leaving the College, are quite unsure as to the steps they have to take and where to go in order to start searching for that “dream” job.
To help guide the Engineering students, those who are on the exit level, the Engineering department conducted an orientation program on job placement preparations on May 25, 2017, from 10:00 to 11:00 am, at the Multi-Purpose Hall in the Engineering Building.
Dr. K. Elangovan, Head of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Section, spoke about the following: Scope of Placement, Stages of Recruitment, Guidelines to be Followed (in taking Aptitude and Technical Tests), Preliminary Preparation for [Job] Placement, and other relevant topics. He also presented the various job opportunities for Electrical, Electronics, and Mechanical Engineering graduates, gave them lists of hiring companies and industries, cited the requirements or qualifications and credentials each applicant must present, and provided examples of questions and types that may come in the tests.
There was a good turn up in the attendance and it is hoped that they have gleaned some essential tips and received the information they needed to help them in the future when they start hunting for jobs.
