Placement training plays a major role in shaping up the career goals of students. It is a dream of every student to get placed in a top organization visiting their campus for recruitment. Considering the importance of this key aspect, it is realized that training is important for students to enhance their employability skills and achieve good placement in the corporate sector.

United School of Business Management has a committed Capacity Building Dept, which teaches prospective candidates about the vital skills that are necessary for them when they enter the corporate world.

Aptitude Building

Most of the renowned firms or recruitment agencies take several assessment tests/aptitude tests for shortlisting candidates for personal interviews. Aptitude is basically your ability to solve a problem creatively, your ability to analyze data etc.

Aptitude tests become even more significant if you are from a technical background, as the IT firms want engineers who have maximum problem-solving potential. Training cell of USBM offers extensive aptitude building training, where you can brush up your aptitude.

Competitive Coding

This is a very important skill, as most jobs will require you at some point to work in a team. Competitive programming helps you learn how to effectively work together, as you must work with others on your team to complete the same task. You learn how to assess your team members’ strength and weaknesses and effectively divide responsibilities amongst each other and make you a desirable candidate for major companies. All big IT companies always have a look and they pick the candidates with high potential and with the best ability to solve complex tasks.

Interpersonal & Communication Skills

As long as people work together, they will need to communicate and do it well. During the personal interview round, the interviewer will check your communication skills. If you are good at it, then you can shape your thoughts better and convince them that you are the right candidate for their profile. The recruiter also understands that it will be easier for other people to work with you as you have clarity in your thoughts and speech.

Personality Development

Personality development is one of the most important aspects of training sessions, wherein the Training Cell organizes a series of tests and workshops to recognize their talent and shortcomings. The main aim of the Training Cell is to groom students so that they can deal with challenging situations at work. Since pre-placement time can be quite daunting, these sessions also help in motivating the students by conducting various workshops on how to increase their self-esteem.

Group Discussions

Group discussions have become an integral part of the hiring process. Companies select students for the final interview round on the basis of their performance in the group discussion. One of the best ways to study the attitudinal and behavioural responses of the participants; group discussions are more of an interaction than a conventional test. The Training and Placement Cell conducts mock group discussions to develop confidence, communication skills, teamwork (how you manage and engage fellow participants) and technical knowledge of the subject.

Technical Interview Practices

Intensive training on technical and core knowledge of all the streams is provided through special classes and the subjects are chosen from all the previous semesters and the nature of the training is like a refresher course.

Résumé Writing Skills: Your résumé is a summation of your achievements, skills, education background etc. Most of the résumés are piled up on the HR desks and unless you make it stand out, they will most probably gain just a cursory glance and will be trashed into the bin. When the recruiter hasn’t seen you, he has seen your résumé. Make sure, it stands out! Training cell will teach you how to make your résumé more attractive and striking (and of course relevant to the position you are vying for) during the pre-placement training, which begins from day one

Personal Interview: One of the most crucial steps to get hired by your dream company is to excel in the final rounds of personal interviews. While some companies schedule 2-3 rounds of interviews including technical and HR interviews, a few select students on the basis of panel interview round and Skype interview. The Training and Placement Cell trains students on important interview skills related to dressing code, confidence, creativity, ability to respond, and handle stress.

Getting hired at the campus is everyone’s dream, even your parents. But you have to keep your game on top in all these above-mentioned areas so that you are the best version of yourself in front of the recruiters.
