  1. Hello, I am a final year student of Civil Engineering and I want to work in the Top 10 Cement Companies in India after my graduation. Can you suggest how can i get job in these companies?

    1. If I honestly tell you, job opening in the field of manufacturing companies has significantly reduced in 2016-17. These companies are laying off their employees due because they are already flooded with employees. Automation may be one of the factors behind these layoffs. You should always check their website for opening and whenever there is opening in these companies apply for the same. You can directly email your CV to HR of these companies but make sure that your CV must include something which can interest them. Hope it helps. All the best for your future.
