Important thing to remember in college placement

1) Don’t just think about Package

Obviously we are gonna think about package whenever we are going to apply for job in placements. Mostly people will select the company which will give them the most right? Yes correct. That’s what most of the people do because at that time they don’t know what else to consider.

2) Know what will be your in-hand salary

Most probably whenever people are applying for job from college placements or for the first time, most of them don’t know that the package that they are given is not the salary they will get in hand.

3) Know What Work you will do

As I said earlier, due to high package and also sometimes due to really popular companies, most people accept the offer and don’t care to find enough about what work they will do in that company like What technologies they will work with, what will be their everyday tasks, what domain is company working in etc.
