In order to have a mutual benefit and to have a long term association, the AIPC has indicated the following guidelines to the recruiters. All the recruiters are requested to kindly stick to these positively to have a smooth placement process.
1. PPOs: It is highly desirable that the status of the PPOs be informed by mid of August. This is for students selected for intern through on campus internship hiring process by the recruiters and after successful completion of the internship.
2. Students with backlogs: If a company does not accept students with arrears/backlogs, it would help to avoid post placement complications if the same is intimated in advance (on the registration portal in the Placement Notification Form).
3. Requirement on bond: If the policy of a company requires signing a bond as part of the joining, it is highly desirable to specify clearly at the time of registration (on the registration portal in the Placement Notification Form).
4. Representation during the Pre-assessment tests: In order to have mutual benefit, it would be better that at least one representative from the company is present on the campus during pre-assessment tests that are being conducted before 1st September 2019.
6. Medical tests and Visa: Regarding medical tests and visa delay issues, it will be beneficial that the recruiter informs students in advance through Placement office.
7. Time duration: The maximum time for any pre-assessment test (online or off-line) is 90 minutes. Since, the deadlines during the final placements are very close with a sequence of companies scheduled, the process will remain smooth if a company completes the personal interview process within 6-10 hours during Placement process. The duration per personal interview per candidate per company should not be more than 60 minutes.
8. Only one pre-assessment test is allowed before 1st September 2019 for the final placement. Any further assessments like (GD, PI etc.) should be held while at least one representative from a company is available on the date allotted.
9. Terms and conditions of employment: All the recruiters are advised to clear the employment terms and conditions, payment terms etc. with the students prior to taking the acceptance of offer. Companies can devise a suitable form for taking the acceptance from the students. It may be noted that if any of these terms and conditions are diluted, divulged or not obeyed by the company, the matter will be referred to the All IIT Placement Committee (AIPC) for further punitive action.
1. Key information on the offers made: If a company makes offers during the placement session, the following key information may be provided along with the offer letter.
- The details on the salary structure (including take-home salary) based on the CTC
- Joining location
- Date of Joining
The offer letters should preferably be provided by the end of March every year so that the candidate can better prepare to join the company.
2. Direct offers: In case of direct offers to the student, it is encouraged that a copy is sent to the Placement office.
3. Deviated offer date: In case of any deviations or not being able to send the offers by the end of March, suitable information with relevant reason be provided to the Placement Office.
4. Major deviations: In case of deferred joining date, change in the package and/or profile and withdrawing offers, the same is to be intimated to the Placement Office with suitable justification for such a decision. This may be intimated to Placement Office before informing the candidate. In case a company is not in a position to honor the offer made, the candidate is to be compensated with 3 months’ salary.
