The first phase of the internship hiring season at IIT Delhi for the academic year 2020-21, which commenced on September 6th, 2020, ended on a vibrant note with internship offers crossing 300 with over 230 unique selections including international training offers from Hong Kong, South Korea and the US. Many students have also bagged multiple internship offers.
Undergraduate students belonging to 2nd year, 3rd Year (of the 4-year B. Tech programmes) and 4th year (of the 5-year Dual degree programme), who are eligible to apply for the internship, have been hired as interns by various international and national companies.
All the selection processes for internship hiring were conducted seamlessly in an online mode using multiple e-resources from registrations, students’ orientations & trainings, company presentations, company pre-processes like tests, group discussions to selection interviews.
Ms. Anishya O. Madan, ILO & Head, Office of Career Services (OCS), IIT Delhi said, “The number of selections has been quite impressive for the undergraduate students of the institute who have opted for summer internship for Summer 2021. We hope that the robust intern hiring numbers at the start of the season are an indication of hiring numbers in final placement as well.”
The efforts of the entire OCS team including staff, student coordinators and volunteers coupled with the industry players across multiple domains resulted in seamless conduct of the internship selection processes in a virtual mode.
So far 150+ organisations have already registered for the current internship hiring season, whose final phase will commence in January 2021.
Ms. Madan added, “The entire OCS team is also gearing up for the upcoming placement season and we look forward to welcoming recruiters on the campus in a virtual mode to facilitate them in hiring top IIT Delhi talents for their companies”.
