IIT Placement FAQs:

  • Will the placement season next year be affected?
    - As far as possible, the members of the Placement Cell will ensure that there are minimum disruptions to the placement schedule for the December 2020 iteration of placements. There may be some minor changes, depending on when things get back to normal, and the responses from recruiters.
  • How will the internships occur? 
    - For students on roll who have applied for internships through the PT Cell, the PT cell has been speaking with recruiters about the possibility of allowing interns to work from home during the internship season, especially in all cases where in-person interaction is non-essential. There will be a loss of some opportunities, if companies revoke the offer or if the internship is an experimental/ University internship. This would also be applicable if the company cannot offer a work from home conducive scope of work or if the student in question is in a remote area with little/no signal access. However, other options are being explored to ensure that maximum people could benefit from the experience of an internship. Students selected by a particular firm would be kept in the loop during the conversation with the company officials to overcome challenges by both the stakeholders.
  • What will happen to the 2nd phase of placement?
    - Unfortunately, due to the ongoing lockdown, there is an impact on Phase 2 of Placements. Universities and other recruiters may approach the Placement Cell once the Institute reopens. The Placement Cell is working to ensure that the Placement of students is not compromised.
