IIT Mandi Virtual Placement Process
From last year’s experience, IIT Mandi students were aware of the virtual hiring scenarios. The Career and Placement (CnP) Cell announced the layout of the drives beforehand which helped the students in preparing for the virtual mock interviews.
Speaking on the placement process, Dr Tushar Jain, Advisor, Career and Placement Cell, IIT Mandi, said: ”The current placement drive at IIT Mandi can be seen as the benchmark drive with respect to the previous years. In this drive, the institute has noticed a significant growth in terms of the number of offers and an increase in participation from the diversified companies, which has become possible due to practicum-based and industry-oriented curriculum.”
“The pandemic has also changed the recruitment process entirely from in-person to virtual mode, which offered new ways and means of interacting to explore among the students and companies. Since students have undergone regular online classes and their exams, whether written or viva-voce, also went online, their performance was remarkable in this interaction. We may see the hybrid modus operandi of the recruitment process in the future” Dr Jain added.
As many as 51 students from IIT Mandi have already got Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs) before the start of the actual placement drive. IIT Mandi has also received seven international offers this year from companies including Accenture, Enjoy LLC, and Weather News.
