Multiple Job Offer Rules
  • In spite of our effort to make sure that the higher paying jobs are offered to the students earlier, it may not be possible always. In the effort of keeping offer rejections low as well as providing students better opportunities, we allow a student to sit for another job/internship interview only if the new job/internship offers a salary more than the previous job (s)he has already got by a significant margin. This margin is a fixed margin internal to our committee.
  • In case a student gets a PPO, the above rule does not apply. The student has to accept or reject the PPO within two days of receiving the offer with salary details. However, if the student accepts a PPO, then it is considered to be a job obtained via placement and any other offer received before would be cancelled. Whether the student can sit for any further interview would be determined by the previous rule.
  • The companies are requested to make a ranked waiting list of students apart from the selected list so that if a selected student gets another offer (as per the above rules) we can automatically fill the position from the waiting list in the order and inform the student as well as the company.
