For this, students need to be trained from B.tech, third year.
Not just the placement, even their personality grooming will be taken care even before the internship. Students will be introduced to the area of Incredible Indian culture, language, even from wearing clothes to party and business meetings. This will be an important part of IIT’s new placement policy. This responsibility is given to the training and placement unit of the institute.
At the moment, IITs only help in preparing CVs. While seniors give some information related to placements to other students. Now the new exercise is going to be done in IIT’s first student training policy in 2019-20. This includes everything from imposing fines to restrictions on dress code, attendance, violation of rules. It is mandatory for third year students to register in the training and placement cell. Many multinational companies had complained about the shortcomings of students from large educational institutions including IITs.
