Upper cut-off phenomenon

The selection criteria for job application changing. Some people have finally realized that academic excellence doesn’t automatically translate into a high performing employee.

‘With more and more companies turning to people with multi-tasking capabilities, students preferring specialisation are driven to disillusionment.

“We are indeed waiting for the market to improve. But what is more disturbing now is the ‘upper cut-off’ insisted by certain companies, saying that those who score 80 per cent and above marks need not apply,” said Aman Jain, a student of B.Tech. electronics and communications at Sri Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain College of Engineering, Bangalore.

That means, the companies have started rejecting the cream of students who excel in studies, on the ground that they will not suit a multi-tasking milieu.
