When new grads make unrealistic demands5 min read 02 Apr 2019, 12:15 AM IST
Salary, role designation—prospective employees have sky-high expectations while negotiating terms of their first job and recruiters often have to burst their bubble
Employers—traditional and new tech companies—often find themselves having to rationalize candidates’ expectations
Campus placements have almost concluded and this year again, records have been created in the number of job and salary offers. For instance, in IIT Bombay this year, the highest international offer was from Microsoft at ₹1.5 crore per annum for a position in Redmond, Washington. The average salary at IIM Ahmedabad last year was ₹24.45 lakh. With salaries rising and millennials having high aspirations, it’s no surprise that students from engineering and management colleges tend to have high, almost unrealistic, expectations from recruiters. Employers—traditional and new tech companies—often find themselves having to rationalize candidates’ expectations.
