Last Poll Result

More than 50% of the people who voted in the last poll believe that the most effective criterion in helping a candidate get a job is "his/her own talent/knowledge". But an interesting observation is that a significant proportion of votes (26.15% endorsement) were in favour of "On-campus placement efforts" and 14.66% endorsed "Adequate platform". Total count of votes was more than 1100 for this poll question.
