The Institute helps each student in exploring placement opportunities by attracting top companies and studios for on-campus or off-campus recruitment of students who are in the final year of the programme and are likely to graduate at the end of the academic year.
IACG was able to maintain a 100% placement record because the final placements, at the Institute, are a result of very systematic interaction with the industry who would be receiving the periodic updates of the student works from the institute. Right from the beginning of the programme, students are continuously counselled with regard to his/her career aspirations and options, which in turn is vigorously followed up with the potential companies for participating in the placement programme of the Institute. This not only helps the students in getting their ‘dream’ jobs but also assists the visiting placement companies in identifying the ‘right’ candidate for their organization. However, the placement will be governed by the placement guidelines:
Planning for Placement
The placement activity is primarily managed by the Placement Committee headed by Director of the institute with the help of the Manager Placement Cell and other committee members which includes faculties and alumni.
The Broad Activities Undertaken by the Placement Cell are:
Getting industrial training and industry linked project work for students.
- Preparation of placement handout for final placement.
- Pre-placement coordination including visits to the companies.
- Communication, networking and relationship building with the potential recruiters
- Invitation to potential recruiters to visit the Institute.
- Continuation of placement activities after the stipulated period, till all the students are placed.
- Conducts personality development programmes through professionals and our faculty.
- Conducts language proficiency assessment Programme for the final year students and conducts special programmes to improve their language skills.
- Grooming and training of the candidates for the placements so that their chances of getting better packages increase.
- General follow-up, joining formalities and other administrative activities.
Student Registration for Placement
Students who are in their final year and interested in availing placement support from institute, will have to register themselves for placement. Those who don’t want any kind of placement support need not register themselves. Registration for placement is done by paying placement registration fees decided by the institute from time to time.
The Institute prepares a Placement Handout, giving details of the students ready to be placed for the benefit of the students and potential recruiters. This handout is subsequently shared with potential recruiters. The students registered for placement are included in this brochure.
Students who fail to clear the academic exams & other formalities at the end of course, shall be removed from the placement process and hence will not be eligible for campus placement activities. Any major disciplinary actions will terminate the student from campus placement activities.
Once an organization shows interest in recruitment from the Institute, the students are asked to register their interest for the job. An email informing about the job opening and its details will be shared with the registered students and placement committee. Placement cell will try to get as much details as possible about the job profile. The registration of interest is to be done by students from their official mail ID on the provided link, after going through the job profile. It is not compulsory. Only students who register for that particular job profile will be considered for the job opening and their names, portfolios and CVs will be shared with the company. It will be responsibility of a student to keep his/her resumes and portfolios updated with placement cell. Once the names of students are submitted, student is not allowed to withdraw from the selection process.
Sometimes companies come for Pre-Placement Talk / Group Discussion / Written Test and the short-listed students are interviewed at the campus or off the campus. Alternately, some companies select students based on their CVs or portfolios and may invite them for Group Discussions/Interviews at their offices.
Guidelines for Placements
The final placement is governed by certain guidelines, which are framed to facilitate the students to get maximum benefits. These guidelines are revised from time to time.
