To sustain this success, the institution has elevated the standard of education, maintained the curriculum current with market trends, fostered strong ties with industries, stipulated internships and hands-on learning opportunities, and given students access to resources for the development of both technical and soft skills. In the long term, this will assist in building the institution’s reputation while also being advantageous to the students.
Key Strategies of AIMIT’s Placement Cell
Interaction with industry on a regular basis to comprehend market developments and demand. This makes it possible for us to give our students the information and skills businesses demand.
Conducting intensive training programs in order to bridge the gap between academic learning and practical skills required in the industry. These programs might include pre-placement training, soft skills, workshops, seminars, mock interviews, and more.
Assisting students to build standard resumes, as it’s often employers’ first impression of a candidate. Placement cells often provide guidance on how to showcase skills, achievements, and experiences in a professional manner.
Soft Skills Development:
We provide training in soft skills, including leadership, teamwork, communication, and problem-solving.
Placement drives will be conducted where multiple companies visit the campus to interview and hire students according to the company’s requirements.
Building a strong network with alums, industry professionals, and other stakeholders can open up additional placement avenues for students.
Keeping track of successful placements and communicating this information to students and prospective companies helps the institution’s credibility and reputation.
