Pre-placement offers this year are witnessing a surge of 20-100%. Top recruiters like McKinsey, PepsiCo, Wipro, BCG, etc have already rolled out PPOs at institutes such as the IIMs, XLRI, MDI, NMIMS. These institutes are expecting to almost double their PPOs as compared to last year. Unusually, most sectors including telecom and IT have seen PPOs coming in.
