It serves as an interface between the students and the potential Corporates/employers. It would bring varied recruiters to the campus, as well as organize talks, study abroad seminars, internship opportunities and workshops for the collective student body. As an added feature, workshops for skills building such as Personal Interviews, Group Discussions and Personality Development, will be introduced so that Placement Cell serves more like a 'Career Services Unit' rather than just a final placement Unit.
