I am an undergraduate student IIIT, Jabalpur, India going to pass out in April 2009. I need some suggestions/tips for offline placement.
My current CPI is 8.2 and overall good academic record. I know the recession has made things worse and it very difficult to get offline job for fresher who has no experience. I have registered at Naukri and Monster but thats not helping (may be because I am inexperienced). I am an algorithm and programming enthusiast and want a job in my field of interest. I participate in many programming contests and lately my position is improving but I could not much participate at topcoder mainly because of timing issues.
Basically I need to take some initiatives on my own for a job and I am clueless as what they should be. Any comments/sugesstions are welcome.
