Pearl Academy beats global recession blues
May '09
Pearl Academy of Fashion (PAF), India's premier fashion & design institute has managed to garner unprecedented attention from brands and buying houses / export houses at this year's campus placements. Brands like Versace, Future Group, Blackberry, Nike, Conforma, Vasari, H G Retail, Lal Group (Dubai), Globus, Ebony, Tommy Hilfiger, Benetton, Satya Paul, Mandira Virk, J J Valaya, Fighter Cock, ITC, W, BATA, Pearl Global, Standard Max, Madame, Bharat Exports, Aryan Lifestyle, and Cantabil International have recruited students with the an average annual package of over Rs. 2 Lakhs with the highest pay package being Rs. 8 lakhs gross annually.

This good showing at a time when world wide recession and slowdown has negatively impacted the industry has been a result of timely measures by Pearl which has seen the number of companies visiting the campus reaching an all-time high of 85. According to Mr Joseph Sam, Advisor-Corporate Relations, Pearl Academy of Fashion, there is a lot of demand for talented graduates in several companies who were never invited to top institutes like Pearl.

These are the companies which are even now expanding and investing hugely in human resources. Those companies which are looking at the slowdown as an opportunity are interested in recruiting quality talent to gain competitive advantage. Pearl Academy aggressively pursued all such companies for placement of its students.

The reason why companies continue to prefer Pearl Academy of Fashion lie in its quality of education which is comparable to the best in the world, its international network which gives global exposure to students, and the perfect blend of technical & managerial expertise that Pearl inculcates in its graduates. These figures bear testimony to the excellent brand perception Pearl Academy has built over the years in the industry. These also reflect on the high esteem in which Pearl graduates are held in the industry.

While it may be easy to get numbers during a market boom, it takes a lot to stand out during a crisis. The statistics show that Pearl has, yet again, proved to be India's campus of choice for recruiters. The relationship Pearl Academy enjoys with the corporate fashion world is exemplary, and strong enough to survive the global economic recession.

Elated at the response, Dr. A. K. G Nair, Group Director, Pearl Academy of Fashion, said, “It is heartening to know that in spite of the hard hitting recession in the global economy, the students are moving to sectors of their choice.

The pay package offered at the entry level are only stipends and after successful completion of the probation period, the candidates are taken in at a permanent employee's pay scale, which could be as much as a 25 to 50 percent hike. We believe students are the future of our industry and therefore continuously strive to meet the expectations of current business by imparting value education of the highest standards.”
