A UK-based Hedge Fund, Shannonside Capital, hired interns from the college for the profile of Hedge Fund Junior Analyst.
Career Development Centre (CDC) prepared a comprehensive information document for the students appearing for placements by collecting data from the students who already appeared in the processes last year. The document encompasses job descriptions, details regarding placement processes, questions asked during different rounds (technical and HR), etc. CDC also initiated a project called ‘The Buddy Project’ wherein each second-year student has been allotted a third-year student as their mentor to guide them through their placements.
Another initiative taken up by the cell is CBS Alumni for Recruitment and Excellence (CARE) Program, which aims to bridge the gap between the students and the corporate world. This year, the program witnessed the participation of 16 mentors in assisting second-year students by helping them to get exposure to the dynamic business environment.
CDC also conducted resume authentication programs to constantly keep a check on the information included in resumes and make sure that only authentic details go through to the companies. This is an annual practice.
