Will any other company go to CEG for campus recruitment this year?

CTS has already given offer letters to (all?) 1,100 students at the College of Engineering, Guindy. Read more here and here.

Now tell me, why would any other company go there for campus recruitment this year? So, essentially, the students of CEG now have no choice but to join CTS, whether they like it or not. And they are not the only students affected. At some other college, the first company to visit will be TCS. What do you think they will do? Exactly. They will make offers to all the students there. After all, they need to meet their requirements too. HCL, Satyam, Infosys will all follow suit.

Welcome to the era of one college - one company!

All you students out there, answer me this: Is this a good thing for you?

Now, go to your Dean(placements) and ask him to remove all restrictions regarding the number of interviews you can attend this year in campus. That way, you will still have a choice of where you would like to work.

Not that CTS is a bad place to work, mind you. It's just that you need to have a choice.
