Graduating from a good university with a valued degree, to eventually getting a decent job is at the top of the priority list of any student. Considering the amount of time energy and money invested by a student in a course, it is but natural to expect good returns for it. With new courses coming up every day, a new horizon for new jobs is simultaneously emerging. Like, for example, till a few years ago, distance education was not of much value to the employment sector. However, with time, new platforms of online learning have come and with more students taking up distance learning, the previous stigma no longer remains.
With an active placement cell on campus, IGNOU offers both on campus and off campus placements for students at all its centers. Students can stay updated about the placement drives by checking the website of the university from time to time. other than that, the university also sends SMS/emails to all the students informing about the placement programs. A range of companies including Axis Bank Wipro Shoppers Stops IBM British Telecom Mahindra and Mahindra financial services HDFC Argo Genpact Barclays come to hire the graduates for different job profiles.
However, how well a student is placed after graduation is relative and depends on a number of factors- how well one performs, and how many years of experience one acquires, how expertise one is in their field, etc. It is finally up to the student to be hardworking and persevering to excel at any job.
Pursuing a course at IGNOU does not guarantee one a job, as it depends on his result. But levels you up with other regular graduates to apply for jobs in both the public and private sectors. However, it is safe to say the scope after graduation from IGNOU is limited compared to regular graduation that is not distant learning.
In a Nutshell: all of that said being one of the largest government distance learning universities in India providing quality education, IGNOU provides degrees that are recognized in India and abroad. For students looking for inexpensive courses to pursue graduation, from a location that is convenient for them, instead of physically attending University, distance learning from IGNOU is a well-suited option.
