Dr. Nandkishore Rathi
Dr. Rathi had a roller-coaster experience in his studies.
His Mechanical Engineering degree from a Government Engineering college was full of pot holes. However, his MBA was with flying colours.
The PhD degree from IIT Bombay was an experience
of a lifetime.
The one and only experience
of research that he had was
his PhD study. Having got exposed to a large volume of
IT recruitment at IIT Bombay
as part of placement activity,
he developed intense curiosity to know the people dynamics
in this industry.
He has always had a fascination for good teachers and teaching. His first job was teaching at
an engineering college.
He also taught full time at a
few management institutes.
As a visiting faculty he was teaching till last few years.
Dr. Rathi is obsessive about guiding people since 1995,
when he joined IIT Bombay
as Placement Head. As part
of this role, almost 10,000 students of final year from across all disciplines and programs were guided by
him towards right industry,
right job and right company.
His first assignment as a trainer was with Videocon International Limited, where he was looking after product and service training for the appliances division. The next was at IIT Bombay where students
were trained in interview
and group discussion skills
for job placements.
He is a blend of deep
interest, both in industry
and academics. After his mechanical engineering, he worked in plastic industry,
cable industry etc. Later he worked with Videocon and
latest with Oracle as Director (Campus Recruitment),
