Aligarh: For the first
time in the history of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), its
students' union organised a recruitment drive, an exercise to
break away from the usual political muscle-flexing and
Four MNCs -- HCL, Genpact, Kotak Securities and Valiant Media
Group -- were invited by the Aligarh Muslim University Students
Union (AMUSU) Saturday. Over 200 students from different
departments were present, out of which 30 got on-the-spot job
"It is just the beginning, there is a lot yet to be done," said
AMUSU secretary Aamir Qutub, who was the convener of the drive.
"By this drive, a message is being imparted to the outside world
that a students' union is not only a place to politicise issues,
but it is also the guardian of the students community and a body
committed to their general welfare", he said.
"We will be having a grand placement fair in the next few months,
and will invite over 30 companies," he added.
