New Delhi: The placement season at IIT Delhi for the academic year 2019-2020 culminated surpassing the previous year benchmarks with 1100+ job offers (includes multiple job offers and pre-placement offers) to the students from various national and international organisations.
Approximately 85.6% undergraduate and postgraduate students who availed placement services of the institute got placed. The remaining students explored for other options like higher studies, research, civil services examination, start-ups or have got jobs through their own contacts and efforts.
Over 430 organisations had registered for the placement season in the academic year 2019-2020 offering 600+ job profiles.During the pandemic, the second phase of placements continued in an online mode and around 100 students bagged job offers during this online phase as well.
Highlighting this trend, Prof. S. Dharmaraja, Head, Office of Career Services (OCS), IIT Delhi said, “IIT Delhi has broken all previous year records of job placements. This year, it was observed that the number of placement offers increased by 4%. This became possible because of the team work, dynamic strategy and knowing the skills of students and the various profiles of core companies.”
Speaking of the 2019-2020 placement season, Ms. Anishya O. Madan, Industrial Liaison Officer,OCS said, “The efforts of the entire placement team including staff, student coordinators and volunteers coupled with industry players resulted in the seamless conduct of this season.”
IIT Delhi as a policy has decided not to mention high-value packages in their placement related press releases. It is felt that undue publicity to packages have the effect of devaluing national placements over international placements as well as core jobs over finance and consulting jobs.
