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
Right from inception into 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 batch 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 include:
Presentation Skills Extempore
The first five days are of interactive sessions 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 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.
