First Naukri.com, a portal for campus hiring spotted these trends and launched an 'Employer Preference Survey' for the year 2013.

Deepali Singh, Business Head, Firstnaukri.com says, "Infosys, TCS and IBM still remain the big giants in campus placements for IT students.

She further says that, "When we look at Non-IT engineers for courses like civil, mechanical, production, electrical etc. DRDO and L&T are the most preferred brands followed by Tata Motors and Tata Steel. While Maruti Udyog has been able to improve its position in placements, NTPC & IOCL have gone down in the wish list of students from last year. If this trend continues, public sector undertakings might be soon losing out on campus talent."
