Online interviews, more companies are getting covered
Anishya Madan, head of the career services office at IIT Delhi, says, “This time a virtual placement drive has been put in place because of Kovid 19. The way we have prepared the schedules and adopted new methods of recruitment, we hope that companies will do well. Our scheduling is an attempt to maximize the number of placement offers for the entire season rather than a particular day. ‘
The institute believes that more and more companies are getting the benefit of having a placement drive in virtual mode. Also, instead of multiple sessions, the entire day is being given to the company. Along with the company, students are also getting time to take decisions. Till last year, this process was done in many sessions and many campuses.
