Every year IILM organizes placement weeks for the students sitting for campus placements. Various companies are called on campus to interact with students. In this interaction companies have to introduce about themselves, what profile they are offering and what skill sets will they be looking for in a prospective candidate. This helps the students to gain clarity about what they should be expecting for in a company in terms of profile, compensation, growth etc. Moreover, recruiters also get to see the pool of talent in the campus and make up their mind accordingly.


The very first placement week or sectoral week as we named it was held from September 1 to September 3 2016. The first placement week was aimed at getting to know about the different sectors fresher’s can join. We covered about 15 sectors in which students got clarity about the different kind of jobs available for them.

After the successful completion of two placements weeks students now were gaining confidence for final placements and internships. After week 2 a lot of companies conducted their processes in campus or in their offices. Deloite came for US Taxation profile and 11 of our bright students got selected for it.Placement week 3 was conducted from 14 November to 18 November. In this SRF, Coffee Day Beverages, Colgate Palmolive, Nestle, Godrej were among the major brands that not only came for pre-placement talks but also conducted their processes too. Other than these big giants we also saw a new age financial technology start-up Indepay Networks that came in for Sales profile.

Among all these processes, students who were not sitting in them also were engaged in other activities. IILM conducted mock GDs in which we invited Mr. Madhav from Zomato as a moderator. Mr. Sandeep Kochar was invited to assist students in their interviews skills after which IILM faculties conducted mock interviews for each student according to the profile they wanted to work in.

Overall in this three week we saw a lot of enthusiasm from the students and companies on campus. Many were successfully placed also and a few had to face rejections. But, it’s the rejections that teach you the most and students surely learned a lot. It was very enriching experience.
