I wonder on the changing paradigm shift in placement. The poor placement officer are held responsible for placement results. If one ask if that isn’t the responsibility who held such positions? This is something we all need to talk about. The uncertain answer is due to the feeling that I (and Dr Meena Chandavarkar) tried to talk on this topic in the book ‘Umbilical Cord‘, cord 11, Poor P-Officer.
We tried to reason out that the, ‘We define our success rate by keeping a gun on others shoulders’ has created weaker society through such process in the name of opportunity.
Is it responsibility or something that we are missing to understand the role of placement officer. What do you think?
