New Delhi: Being amongst the top-ranked educational institutions in India and the most employable in India (Global rank 27 as per Times Higher Education Global Employability rankings 2021); IIT Delhi provides education to students across a variety of domains to cater to the needs of the nation and industry.

The Office of Career Services (OCS), IIT Delhi is a facilitating arm of the institute mandated to serve mutual interests of the student body and the recruiting organisations. Like every year, interviews for placements at IIT Delhi will commence from December 1. The period for companies to hold selection interviews for full-time hiring spans around 6 months (between December to end of May) wherein numerous national and multi-national organisations visit the campus to recruit top-notch talent from the institute.

This year, industry response to invitations to participate in campus placements of students has been encouraging across sectors. Many organisations have registered with the placement office with an intent to hire graduates of IIT Delhi. There is an increasing registration for new-age technology-based hiring profiles related to data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning in addition to traditional profiles. The campus looks forward to a robust hiring session this season.

This year, the placement season will commence in a virtual mode in December 2021 like last year. Students are gearing up for placement interviews in a digital mode with innovative and newer patterns of interaction maximising the use of technology. OCS, IIT Delhi plans company schedules with an attempt to create an optimum environment for both the recruiters and the students to be interviewed. It is an effort to make this process as congenial as possible for all stakeholders.

The entire interview process will be conducted in a single slot each day unlike other campuses. This process has been conceived to facilitate the right fitment both for students and recruiting organisations while providing ample time to recruiters to make selection judgements leading to better hiring decisions. To illustrate; this translates to NO graveyard shifts or multiple shifts within a day and a spread of companies across recruiting days, which is more than other campuses.

Speaking about the upcoming placement season, Dr. Anishya Obhrai Madan, Head, OCS, IIT Delhi said, “The company slotting paradigm at IIT Delhi is very different from all other campuses and is based on a single slot each day. What this translates into is that the spread of companies will be more on each day. This year many organisations have increased their compensation. For the first time few organisations have indicated that their salaries in India may be higher than those paid by organisations recruiting for international profiles. We look forward to a healthy and robust placement season for both the recruiting organisations and students.”

IIT Delhi is looking forward to welcoming all our recruiters on the campus in a virtual mode to facilitate them in hiring top talent from IIT Delhi for their organisations from December onwards.
