It actively focuses on preparing the students for various internship and job placement drives. The students go through a rigorous training to prepare their resumes and have mock group discussions and personal interviews. Not only do we train them but also do one on one consultations if the students would like any help with resume or group discussions and personal interviews or a general career guidance. The focus is on building a portfolio of the students right from the first year of their graduation itself.
