Recruitment drives are meant to be those campaigns that are run for the sole purpose of recruiting participants for an organization and aware participants about the job market. OCS at UMT has been conducting various on-campus recruitment drives related to diverse functional areas. Organizations visit UMT and present their company along with conducting their field-special recruitment tests and/or interview sessions for the eligible candidates. Various organizations recruit candidates from UMT either for a job or internship program and share their experiences with us.
The major objective of such recruitment drives is to identify the talented and qualified professionals before they complete their education. This process reduces the time for an industry to pick the candidates according to their need. It is a cumbersome activity and hence majority of the organizations find it difficult to trace the right talent which they can easily find at a common point (UMT campus). Recruitment drives are fruitful for both; job seekers and employers, because it works as an easy, effective and efficient way to find the right candidate for the right job at the right place. Similarly, candidates do not have to make a vigorous effort to go out in the market and search for jobs and drop CVs around.
Recruitment drives usually consist of some type of presentation or panel followed by some dedicated networking time. If you are still learning about what career path you are interested in, attend as many of these as possible. It is a great resource to learn about different industries and organizations.
