Based on inputs from the company representatives, jobs will be posted to a sub-set (usually based on departments) of our students.  Please be informed that each year a company may have some target areas to recruit for.  So even when a job from a company is posted to students, you  may not be able to apply for this.

In some cases recruiters ask for CVs of students (before, during or after interviews).  All students are requested to include their CV at the time of applying for the job.

Online sign up /sign in are enabled in the Placement Portal.  However students will not be able to make any changes in their profile during the placement cycle.
