The organizations can start inviting applications any time after the Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) and/or confirmation of participation in the Final Placement Process. The details of the job offer such as profile, remuneration and location must be provided before applications are invited. Consequently, an invitation letter will be mailed to the organization confirming the date and time at which the Selection Process will take place. The organization is required to communicate the detailed process requirements (number of selection rounds, panels, and process specific requirements) at least 3 days prior to the placement process.
Pre-Placement Talk: October 2019
Final Placements: September 2019 - February 2020
Joining Dates: April 2020 onwards
The Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) helps companies and students interact with each other. The representatives of companies share the profile of their company, key aspects of business, work environment and opportunities available to the students. The presentation is followed by a Q&A session, where students interact with company officials to get a better understanding of the company and potential roles. A typical PPT session is scheduled for 90 minutes.
Applications and Shortlists
In response to job descriptions floated by companies, interested students apply through the Placement office. A detailed resume is submitted by the students as part of the application process. On the basis of student applications, companies are required to send shortlists to the Placement office prior to their final placement interviews.
The final placement process is expected to be conducted over a period of time from September 2019 to February 2020. Companies can interview the students they have shortlisted, on the date agreed upon by the Placement office and the company. The final placement interview gives the company and the student an opportunity to discuss the role in detail and make the right choice. The companies are allowed to meet students prior to their allotted final interview date and carry out preliminary assessments.
Offers and Acceptance
The company can make an offer to the student after the final interview. For an offer to be valid, it should include details of the role, location, remuneration, and other relevant terms and conditions required by the candidate to make a decision. The offer is communicated by the company to the Placement office, which in turn communicates it to the selected student. The acceptance of an offer is governed by placement rules of the PGP which are framed at the beginning of the academic year.
