Personality Development Programmes: Overall grooming and personality development is an essential aspect of training that the Placement Cell focuses on. Training one specifically for existing corporate challenges is a short-term goal. In order to truly empower students, the Placement Cell works on grooming them completely so tomorrow’s new challenges can be dealt with effectively.

Furthermore, it conducts general workshops for all students so they may develop certain qualities which will aid them in handling personal and career challenges. Leadership skills, problem solving, career management and self management are just some of the focus areas of the Placement Cell.

Group Discussions: Group Discussion! Is a methodology or in a simple language you may call it an interview process or a group activity. It is used as one of the best tools to select the prospective candidates in a comparative perspective. GD may be used by an interviewer at an organization, colleges or even at different types of management competitions. GD evaluation is done by the subject experts based on the discussions. A report will be prepared on analyzing the facts at the end of the discussion. Placement cell at RCE frequently organizes group discussion activities for the students to gauge whether the student has certain skills and/or personality traits that it desires for a particular company.

Seminars, Workshops and Technical Talks: Workshops, seminars and conferences held at regular intervals do perform the same motive for a student. Being exposed to these practices makes him more prone towards learning and getting better with each session. Continuance of studies and workshop on a parallel note can configure various academic highlights. It is always a nice option to exercise the textbook tools with technological knowhow. Students attending such workshops can demonstrate their capabilities and can further more update their knowledge through such platforms.

Aptitude Tests: Aptitude test can be used as a measure of the ability of a person. The aptitude test is of a great importance for the students studying in the colleges. As most of the multinational companies take the aptitude test of the person trying for the job. Placement Department regularly organizes aptitude tests to check the ability of the students for a particular job. To motivate them and to train them how to attempt an aptitude test college also organizes talks from the various professionals and trainers from different universities or organizations for taking competitive exams like CAT, GMAT, Aptitude etc.

Skill Development Sessions: Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development of a country. Education should always be purposeful, growth oriented and productive. Along with Academic Qualifications we need to produce dynamic and enterprising youngsters capable of facing the changing times and taking on the toughest technical challenges. Prospective employers along with academic Qualifications are looking at the worth and expertise of a candidate from the view point of employability potential of the candidate. Hence the emphasis is on how best to integrate industry relevant skill set and regular college curriculum and expose students to real workplace culture. The need of the hour is a sustainable platform to hone the skills of students and provide the support each individual needs to grow. A well defined solution is the establishment of Skill Development Centers by the educational institutes.
We will create technologically equipped thought and action leaders in a wide range of spheres by providing value – based and high quality education along with the most indispensable professional as well as life skills

Resume Writing: Resume writing is important for making the transition from school to the workforce. A resume is a brief written summary of a job applicant’s past employment history, education, and other pertinent information. Resumes are used to make a favorable impression on a prospective employer. Your resume is often the first impression a potential employer has of you. For this reason, it is often referred to as one of the most crucial steps taken during a job search. When you’re in learning mode, you’re focused on the theory that underlies the kind of work you’re interested in. However, once you complete your education, you must focus on the practical application of your skills. Your ability to transfer learning to actual demonstrations of your skills and knowledge in a work environment should be part of your description of your capabilities and qualifications in a resume.

Mock Interview SessionsMock interviews enable candidates to have a fair idea about the sort of things they are going to experience at actual interviews, and prepare them how accurately they can deal with it. Mock interviews help candidates reduce their anxiety about interviewing by training them for the typical interview questions. Mock interviews also prepare job seekers for behavioral-based issues in an interview. In a real interview the behavioral standard is judged much by the interviewee’s body language. So, it is very important to know how one can appear best by employing those standard set of gestures.
As the Quality Placement is the prime object of our Placement Team. So, the Mock Interview Sessions have always been in practice to prepare students to sit and crack the Interviews of the Companies.

Industrial Visits: Industrial visit has its own importance in a career of a student who is pursuing a professional degree. It is considered as a part of college curriculum, mainly in engineering courses. Objective of industrial visit is to provide students an insight regarding internal working of companies. We know, theoretical knowledge is not enough for making a good professional career. With an aim to go beyond academics, industrial visit provides student a practical perspective on the world of work. It provides students with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices. It gives them exposure to current work practices as opposed to possibly theoretical knowledge being taught at college. Industrial visits provide an excellent opportunity to interact with industries and know more about industrial environment. Industrial visits are arranged by our college for the students with an objective of providing students functional opportunity in different sectors like IT, Manufacturing and services, and marketing. Industrial visit helps to combine theoretical knowledge with industrial knowledge.

Summer Training or Internships: A professional career does never starts with a smooth baseline, which every student dreams for. Summer Training or Internship is such a middle path that allows the student to accommodate himself to the struggling phase of his about to start working life. A student being actively involved in any kind of training or internship is likely to gain the maximum experience of his lifetime in terms of learning and eliminating the primary mistakes in future days. These internships act as an entry ticket for students who can get them introduced to the already active world of professionalism. They can make the most out of this phase by increasing their contacts and sociable qualities.
