I request you provide the missing information (or updates) to fill up the table. Also forward this to as many friends and ask them to fill in what they know. It is the only way this can be completed.

The purpose of this document is to congregate from the distributed network and provide information in one place for the benefit of whomsoever interested. I promise it will come to use for many people, and also act as a feedback mechanism to assist our juniors.

You can reach to me or provide the details in the comments section below.

    great job da!!

  22. […] a Comment » my usual low traffic blog got a jump of over 1000% in page views today! with this post […]

  23. Iyer, Shashi says:

    Boy, Bheem, I guess people will be happier knowing the synopsis of the job profile more than how many people are picked up by each company. That information’s also available on the net.

    • adityabheemarao says:

      yea, that would definitely help.
      accounting the status of the offers was the primary intention of this particular post.
      I’ll suggest one of the junior placement coordinators take up the task of talking to the seniors and preparing a database with the information you mentioned. it’ll be very valuable.

  24. Harish Iyer says:

    Nice, but hopefully by next May things will be much better in terms of companies keeping their offers on time. SO don’t worry too much , go ahead with the best profile and package companies

  25. Tapesh says:

    Oracle SSI (Consultancy) has been telling that everybody will be hired but is a bit vague on when part of it.
    12 were hired from NITK and I guess 4 out of them have joined elsewhere.

  26. Prathik says:

    Exeter. Joining deferred to sometime in 1st quarter of 2010.

  27. Sruthi Lanka says:

    Hey Bheemboy 🙂

    I think it’s also a good idea to keep track of how many people joined in all of the above companies. Should help in the future.

    All 5 joined Goldman Sachs.
