VTU to launch website to streamline placement procedure

In line with plans of the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) to streamline its placement procedures, it will soon launch a website devoted exclusively for the same.
The idea is to put in place a single platform in the form of a placement portal.

“The portal will include a number of verticals such as registrations for placements, providing internships, project submissions and interaction with corporates. Another vertical includes various functions for companies such as posting details about available positions, particular requirements, internship possibilities and announcement of various competitions,” said an official from VTU.  
Yet another category to be added in the portal will have a number of functions for placement officers of particular colleges such as verifying students’ data and documenting the number of students placed.

“Companies are not at all interested in wasting their time and resources in conducting a number of recruitment drives, if they can get the job done on one platform and get good talent from numerous colleges. Plans for the website are, however, yet to be finalised and things are still in a preliminary stage,” said the official.


VTU had set up a centralised placement system for the 200 colleges under it in November last year.
Previous efforts. It had also conducted an online aptitude test for students based on the requirement of particular companies.

Through the centralised placement system, VTU has already conducted a number of recruitment drives on the request of companies like Infosys, IBM and will be conducting more for other companies. Nearly 6,000 students from the present batch and previous ones have been placed through the system. A centralised placement drive was organised exclusively for women. 
   
When asked how the centralised placement and introducing a website would sync with the individual placement plans of colleges, the officer said, “A number of colleges have their own placement cells and procedures, no doubt. It is up to them to participate or not. Students from a number of so-called top colleges have sought to be part of the placement drive and we have allowed them. Good talent will come from any college and even companies recognise this,” the officer said.
