Placements Process

Vedica takes roughly four months to complete the placement procedure. The Scholars are prepared to conduct effective interviews and pursue occupations of their choice thanks to a variety of placement preparation events that range from presentations by industry experts to one-on-one private discussions. Pre-placement talks (PPT) by recruiters with national and worldwide reach, as well as sharing opportunities, kick off the placement process.

The discussions are on the companies’ beliefs, culture, work ethos, and expectations. Vedica then follows the placement procedure of the relevant firm, which may involve Expressions of Interest, multiple interview rounds, GDs, tests, technical rounds, and so on. The student-led Career Development Committee collaborates closely with the Programme Team throughout the process, sharpening the cohorts’ skill sets and ensuring the process goes smoothly.
