New Day Zero record: NUJS 4th years bag 40 (!) jobs + 4 foreign gigs (Khaitan biggest)

NUJS Kolkata has set a new Day Zero record, with 40 students having accepted jobs after kicking off its 2016-batch campus recruitments on 17 and 18 April.

A total of 63 students took part in the Day Zero process and scored 27 job offers made after campus interviews, on top of 13 pre-placement offers (PPOs) previously secured by students during internships, according to the college recruitment committee.

Khaitan & Co was the biggest recruiter with 12 accepted jobs, followed by Luthra & Luthra with eight.

Amarchand Mangaldas Mumbai was the third-biggest recruiter with six jobs, while Amarchand Delhi hired four.

AZB & Partners, ICICI Bank, J Sagar Associates (JSA), Talwar Thakore & Associates and Trilegal also picked up students.

Four NUJS 2016 graduates also won vacation schemes at Herbert Smith Freehills and Linklaters, which often have a high chance of turning into high-paying jobs abroad.

The total batch size is 118, of whom more students will sit for recruitments throughout the year.

NLSIU Bangalore’s Day Zero this year yielded 33 jobs and 4 vacation schemes, while NLU Delhi secured 20 jobs and 4 vacation schemes, NLIU Bhopal got around 22 jobs, GNLU Gandhinagar 24 jobs and NLU Jodhpur hauled in 31.

The biggest 2016 recruiter so far is Khaitan & Co, which after picking up a total of 12 NUJS students including three via PPO, has now recruited 42 2016-graduates already, closely followed by Amarchand Mangaldas Mumbai with 38 offered jobs and Luthra & Luthra with 35.

Amarchand Mangaldas Delhi, which is expected to operate independently and in competition to Amarchand Mumbai,  has hired 17.
