CEPT University has set up an online recruitment system for the companies that will participate in the placement of about 120 students from its seven disciplines this year. The university has developed the system following demand of the companies that wanted to conduct recruitment interviews on-line to save time and other resources. Several firms, including MNCs, such as Gujarat International Finance Tech City (GIFT), CRISIL, ATTKINS GLobal, Egies, Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL), ICRA-IMaCs, Liases, Unity Infrastructure, Water Sanitation Performance Assessment (PAS) among others are participating in the process for the on and off campus recruitment. The placement is scheduled for February 1st to 10th and includes students of Faculty of Planning and Public Policy (FOPP).
FOPP placement chair Saswat Bandyopadhyay said, “Unlike past years, some companies have shown preference to conducting selection process through distance conference modes like telephone, video or Skype”. “As many as seven companies specifically demanded interviews of the students through video link. This will help companies from abroad and other states to get in touch with the students in real time and even further round of interviews can be arranged easily”, Prof Bandyopadhyay said. Students appearing for the interviews are from seven disciplines Urban and Regional Planning, Environment Planning, Housing Planning, Infrastructure Planning, Industrial Area Planning Management and Urban Transport Planning Management.
Companies like GIFT, JLL, a global real estate consultancy, Mumbai-based Unity Infrastructure, which is mainly into construction and allied activities, transportation, water supply and irrigation, are among those that are eyeing Cept for recruitment. A senior GIFT official said: Urban infrastructure, environment and planning are at the core of any development and Cept offers such talent. Hence, we are looking for recruitment from this university, too. Local Director at JLL Nirav Kothary said: Cept is one place where real estate companies and consultancies like us find students whom we don’t have to groom as they learn exactly what we want them to do in the job.
