PLACEMENTS


Introduction

The raison d'êtreof an institution is to assist its students in achieving their dreams of kick-starting a successful career in a challenging and ever-diversifying industry.

The Placement Office enables students to explore the world of employment and new career avenues. It also helps students in career planning through counseling wherein they gather information about themselves in terms of their interests, aptitudes, and abilities so that they can choose their career more effectively. The focus of the Placement Office is also on the professional development of the students by training them in employability skills such as resume building, group discussion, and interview skills which in turn helps the students to move into the desired occupation and/or apply to prestigious postgraduate and professional schools.

The Placement Office takes the initiative to explore new career avenues for graduates and postgraduates through visits to new companies and unexplored sectors. Campus recruitments are organized every year.

The selection process generally starts with a pre-placement talk in which a firm/organization gives the students insights into the company profile, job profile, career path, CTC etc. This is followed by the actual selection process i.e., written test, group discussion, interview etc. The University has a state-of-the-art facility that makes campus recruitment a pleasant experience. Student placement representatives from each class are also present to provide assistance throughout the selection process.
