About the Cell:
The Training and Placement Cell’s goal is to introduce science students to the corporate environment. Since June 2017, the Training and Placement Cell (TPC) has served as the interface between college students and industries. TPC aids students in their last year of study in securing employment after programme completion. Nonetheless, training and grooming begin in the very first and second year of graduation and second semester for postgraduation. Talent identification, classification, and addressing the strengths and shortcomings of students have characterised our efforts. The training and placement office at Bajaj College of Science collaborates with major corporations and institutes to build up internship and training programmes (internships) for graduating students, in addition to facilitating the placement process. The office liaises with numerous industrial institutions that conduct campus interviews and select graduate and post-graduate students from all fields. The TPC provides the infrastructure for group discussions, assessments, and interviews, as well as other logistical support. The office engages with numerous industries around the nation, with various organisations conducting campus interviews.
The placement season spans the course of the year, beginning the final week of July and ending in March. Pre-placement discussions are also done in accordance with mutual convenience. Through the TPC, job openings, interview dates, and candidate selection are communicated. The TPC is supported by a committee composed of faculty members which are actively participating in TPC activities. Each year, in addition to set of norms, the committee develops a broad policy framework. Students are heavily involved in the implementation of these policy decisions. In collaboration with industry and academic professionals, TPC provides training programmes to strengthen students’ soft skills and overall personality. For campus campaigns, invitation letters and emails are addressed to various firms and organisations. Internships are also provided to interested students in order to prepare them for employment. TPC encourages undergraduate to apply national internship programmes. Students are trained in vocational skills such as communication, effective and confident body posture, time management, and stress management in order to adapt to various work cultures and circumstances. Teachers also create a profile of the organisation to help students comprehend the work culture and job prerequisites.

The colleges offer a placement cell for both undergraduate and graduate students. The placement cell conducts a variety of activities, including aptitude tests, seminars, group discussions, guest lectures by industry experts, and a training on soft skills. The placement committee strives to contact companies for campus placement opportunities. A communication occurs via the HR group via telephone, and email. The student database is sent to the industry or company according to their needs. Some of them offer training and college recruitment. According to their hiring process, the student gets shortlisted. After determining the date and time, the company performs a campus drive on college campus or calls students to their offices. Students who pass the aptitude test are qualified for subsequent rounds, such as technical and HR interviews. The recruited students get job offer letter and most of them join those companies or institutes immediately. The training and placement cell keep records of placements and prepare the database.
