Is this the future?
Engineering colleges in the state, which in terms of placements had a good 2019-20 when many recorded their highest numbers in recent years, are looking forward with optimism to 2020-21, with virtual hiring the order of the day.
Several colleges are holding tests and mock interviews for their students. In some colleges, virtual hiring has begun and a few students have bagged offers.
Institutions are also opening up campuses for students in remote areas for attending online interviews.
