It's makeover time for students

The placement drives are going on at various city college campuses. And along with getting their CVs in order, city youngsters are going all out to enhance their looks. They are splurging big time on grooming to make a grand impression on the recruiters. Nagpur Times traces this trend.

Corporate calling
An engineering student from RCOEM, Piyush Barai went an extra mile and has got his tooth bonding done from a dentist before his campus interview. He said, "Though I'm confident about my academic excellence, I don't want to lag behind in the looks arena. This tooth surgery has cost me around `5,000. I had also sported long hair all through my college life, but I have chopped it now to flaunt a serious, corporate look."

Fitter, better and glowing

Along with shopping, youngsters have also hit the gym to look fitter and better. Chetna Patankar of NYSS College, who is gearing up for her campus interviews, said, "I'm on the heavier side and when I learnt that campus placement drive was about to begin, I immediately joined the gym. Now, I'm regularly going to the salon for special facials and massages before the interviews. I have also bought myself a hair iron, which is quite expensive but it saves me those trips to the salon to get my hair straightened before each campus interview."

Not at the cost of my career
Doing his Electrical Engineering from Priyadarshini Indira Gandhi College of Engineering, Avinash Anand was completely taken aback when one of his friends was rejected in a campus interview because he was 'casual about his physical appearance and personal hygiene.' He said, "I'm going for regular face cleanups and visiting a dermatologist for acne problem before campus recruitments begin in our college. I'm paying through my nose for the skin creams and salon services. But, I don' want to take a risk and repent later; it's about my career, after all."

Tabish Raza from Tirpude College still has a year before he undergoes the stress of facing the campus recruitment drive, he is ready to change his look in advance. He said, "I sport very long hair right now, but my parents and teachers have already started insisting that I chop off my locks, so that I look more presentable. And I'm going in for a haircut next week."
