Most fresh graduates when they come out of university, always dream of joining a big company which has big cafeteria, pick and drop facility, huge floors, classy furniture, foreign job opportunity etc and this is the standard definition of great job opportunity. To find such job opportunity, freshers roam around big IT parks or gigantic industrial areas so that they can secure a place at big companies.

Due to which freshers are always stuck in a vicious circle and waste significant amount of time, money and efforts just to secure a place in big companies.
