The Recruitment Drive's Season Continues…
In the last week of April 2017, IBA CDC proudly welcomed some of the most eminent names from diversified industries of Pakistan. TCS, Logic Information Systems Pvt Limited, Jubilee Life Insurance, TRG/IBEX Global, Coca Cola Beverages Private Limited, Baltoro Partners and Mobilink Jazz conducted their recruitment sessions and tests to recruit the most demanding talent from IBA.
The best source of motivation for students are the IBA alumnus working in the organizations. Mariam Muneer from Logic Information Systems, Amara Isani from IBEX Global, Asad from Coca Cola, Mustafa Naseem and Taimoor Noorani from Baltoro not only represented their organizations but also introduced themselves as IBA alumni.
155 students appeared for IBEX Global orientation session followed by a written test for Entry level positions. 55 students appeared for Baltoro's written test out of which 18 were shortlisted after the interview for entry level and internship positions. Baltoro Partners is an emerging private equity firm which we take pride to mention that this is founded by IBA alumnus, Mustafa Naseem.
Coca Cola's session for the graduating batch was quite lively and interactive. The team made it sure that students enjoy the session and get attracted in joining their prestigious organization. Asad, who is an IBA alumnus and also working as an associate in Coca Cola, encouraged the students with his inspirational experience from HR department to Sales department of Coca Cola. He sang Coca Cola's song along with the students to keep the students engaged.
Mobilink Jazz also conducted a session followed by online assessment and interviews for its internship program. 180 students appeared for the test and the results are yet to be revealed.
Here is what TCS's HR Business Partner, Najwa Siddiqui had to say about her experience:
"We would like to thank IBA and the CDC team for giving us the opportunity to conduct the first-ever TCS E-COM recruitment drive in their premises. The overall session was insightful and interactive, as the students showed keen interest by listening intently and also by asking some interesting questions with respect to the e-commerce industry. We really hope to find some good quality talent with the right kind of attitude from IBA. In future, we would expect maximum students to participate and benefit from such sessions."
