PPOs witness a strong rise
Pre-placement offers this year are witnessing a surge of 20-100%. Top recruiters like McKinsey, PepsiCo, Wipro, BCG, etc have already rolled out PPOs at institutes such as the IIMs, XLRI, MDI, NMIMS. These institutes are expecting to almost double their PPOs as compared to last year. Unusually, most sectors including telecom and IT have seen PPOs coming in. Goldman Sachs, for instance, recruited 68 summer interns this year from b-schools across India and plan to convert majority of them to full-time employees. At PepsiCo India, currently 70% of senior sales and marketing managers come from summer interns. This surge indicates a revival of the economy and the job market. PPOs are also a strong indicator of how the placement season will play out.
