The Placement Process at JIMS aims to match the requirements of the Corporate World with the aspirations of the students thereby facilitating the achievement of synergy between the two.
The various Placement Activities undertaken at JIMS are described below.
Summer Internship Program
As a compulsory part of curriculum, PGDM students are required to undergo Summer Internship with an organization for a period of 6-8 weeks. The Internship has dual objectives. Firstly, it allows the student to apply the concepts learnt in the classroom and hone their ability to define, diagnose and analyze a specific managerial problem and search for its appropriate solution. Secondly, it gives the student a glimpse into the present corporate environment and an appreciation of the interpersonal and influencing skills required to excel in the workplace. Having handled a live problem, the student comes out of the Summer Internship with a much more understanding of management issues facing the organization, a greater appreciation of operating variables supplemented by a cognizance of the larger business environment. The organization benefits by acquiring, for a short period, a keen mind equipped with analytical capabilities and theoretical inputs to tackle any immediate issue it may be facing. The organization also gets a chance to observe JIMS student at work.
The period of Summer Internship is normally from the beginning of May to June.
Campus Recruitment Program
The Final Placements for the graduating class are facilitated through the following processes:
The Pre Placement Talks are an opportunity for the companies to interact with the students and to know their prospective recruits better, both for the summer and final placements. Organizations make presentations which are vital in providing the students with information about the organizations and career prospects in which typical student concerns like job description, remuneration package, scope for growth, cross functional exposure are answered.
The Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) is followed by scheduling of participating companies for placements by allotting day and time when they can begin their recruitment process. The entire selection procedure of a company has to be carried out within the time frame allotted to them. Companies may invite CVs of interested students and shortlist students on the basis of their profiles before coming on campus. On campus, the company process may include written test, Group Discussion and Personal Interview.
