We, at IAMR believe in preparing students for immediate placements in the industry. The placement process begins in September with the compilation of students profile and the preparation and printing of the placement brochure. Students, along with faculty members visit industries from October to December and distribute placement brochures in print and electronic forms and invite them to visit the campus for pre-placement presentations. Companies start visiting the campus for pre-placement discussion from December to the end of January.
The Placement Process at IAMR aims to match the requirements of the corporate world with the aspirations of the students, thereby facilitating the achievement of synergy between the two. The various placement activities undertaken at IAMR are described below:
Summer Internship Program
As a compulsory part of curriculum, PGDM students are required to undergo Summer Internship with an organization for a period of 8 weeks. The Internship has two objectives. First, to give a platform to the students for the application of their theoretical knowledge and enhance their ability to define, diagnose and analyze a specific managerial problem and search for its appropriate solution. Second, to give the student a glimpse of the present corporate environment and an appreciation of the interpersonal skills required to excel in the workplace. Having handled a live problem, the student comes out of the Summer Internship with a much better understanding of intricate issues being faced by the organization, a greater appreciation of operating variables, supplemented by a cognizance of the larger business environment.
Campus Recruitment Program
The Final Placements for the graduating students is facilitated through the following processes:
The Pre-Placement Talks or Company Presentations provide an opportunity for the Companies to interact with the students, understand their expectations and appraise them of the job requirements and job profiles offered.
This process is usually conducted in the month of February, and can continue till fortnight before the Final Placements. Companies are required to conduct a Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) so that they can interact with the students. Companies may invite CVs of interested students and shortlist students on the basis of their profiles before coming to campus. On campus, Placement takes place through the following mechanisms:
Spot Offers : If a company makes an offer to a student before completing the entire interview process with all short-listed candidates, such an offer is considered as a Spot Offer.
Final Selection list : A company may interview all the short-listed candidates before arriving at a list of selected students. Such a list is considered as a Final Selection List.
I would like to thank the Training & Placement Cell of IAMR, who gave me an opportunity to participate in interviews of MRF. I am very appreciative of the IAMR family who gave me an excellent academic curriculum.
It is always a pleasure to interact with students. I find that the faculties and students have a tremendous quest for knowledge, and curiosity is an essential behaviour required to excel in any field.
