The Office of Career Services in collaboration with the University’s faculty, runs the highly successful Placement Selection Improvement (PSI) program that is intended to groom students for better placement and enhance their employability prospects.
Right from the beginning in the University, each student is closely monitored to ensure that there is a significant step-up in their overall personality and approach to their career, rather than a single-minded focus on grades alone.
The PSI program provides students a platform to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge of their domain and its application. In view of this, they are exposed to the basic requirements of selection at the time of interviews during campus placements and made aware of personality related aspects which companies expect in every aspirant. All new students are trained to add sheen to their personality and improve their communication and soft skills. Likewise, all the graduating students are given a comprehensive training capsule to refurbish/brush up their skills.
The PSI program is conducted for a period of seven days for all the graduating batches. The subjects covered are:
- CV Writing
- Presentation Skills
- Group discussion
- Interview Skills
- Team Spirit
- Corporate Etiquette
The first five days are of interactive sessions are to enhance students’ understanding of the demands of their respective domains, thereby, improving their employability in the market. The last two days are for the conduct of Group Discussions and Mock Interviews (GD/MI). Each panel for GD/MI consists of three interviewers i.e. a Domain Specific Professional, an HR professional and an internal coordinator. Each student is made to undergo three/four rounds of GD/MI. A detailed structured report is provided for all the students to give them an insight of their personality, knowledge level and skills.
PSI helps students to understand and analyze their actual value in the market. They get an opportunity to be exposed to various aspects that require immediate attention. It enables them to prepare themselves well in advance in the areas which otherwise impede their chances of better placements.
