The e-commerce sector continued to remain a popular option among students, with 71 offers being extended by the likes of Amazon (36), Flipkart (6), Cloudtail (5), Grofers (5), Swiggy (5), and Dunzo (5).

In the Finance, Banking and Investment domains, 71 offers were made by firms such as Goldman Sachs (7), Citibank (7), and JP Morgan (6).
