The training and placement officers are often at the mercy of those HR People who come to recruit in B and C grade colleges. Aptly put up in the comic!
I believe same is not the case in the IITs and NITs.
PS: What are the odds, all the colleges in the city I stay in - have conducted T&P workshops. And they asked the students to jot down points for the 'most common scenarios' than you face in interview.
So, Zero originality there.
