Training & Placement Cell was started as an initiative by SVKM with a goal of providing training to students to make a smooth transition from academics to industry and to open up employment opportunities for them.

The cell began its journey in 2010 with a trainer & a placement officer. Like any other endeavours which is its infancy, it had to metamorphose to the level of potential that it has achieved today. This metamorphosis included challenges like understanding and identifying the competencies required by fresher’s, getting students to understand the importance of training before they enter corporate life, better coherence and synergy between Training functions and Placement functions and seamless execution of Training & Placement activities.

The Training and Placement officers worked together to integrate their objectives and activities seamlessly. Processes like streamlining registrations, relaying company feedback to the trainers who then developed modules accordingly, scheduling training calendar in correlation with placement calendar so that there is systematic flow of Training & Placement activities and involving the faculties and student’s active participation were established.

The Context:

One of the major attributes employers find lacking in young graduates is soft skills. In a typical corporate example, while technical skills are required to receive an interview call, soft skills help convert the call into a job offer and also for further career growth. With the changing role of the institution, it was also felt that students should be given a platform for employment opportunities through college, hence the Training and Placement Cell was set up. As most of our students have a good knowledge of basic communication skills, a requirement was felt to enhance and further develop the strengths of the students to make them ready for their transition from students to employees. With placements, students get more opportunities to showcase themselves as the potential workforce in front of the best of companies which leads to a better career development at an appropriate age, simultaneously exposing them to a practical working environment and enabling them to contribute towards the growth of organisation.

The Practice

The Training & Placement Cell started work from September 2010. From a two person Cell consisting of Placement Officer & Development Officer (Soft Skill Trainer) in 2010, it has evolved into a dynamic team of Placement Officer, Development Officer (Soft Skill Trainer), Placement Faculties and the core team of Student Coordinators. The cellengages in consistent industry interaction with various industrial establishments and corporate houses for summer internships, placements, guest talks and visits. It ensures placements of our students in the best companies.



Soft skills are necessary for the all-round development of an individual. The training concentrates on three major areas to become corporate ready; Self-management skills and People-management skills and Corporate Readiness. The First Year focuses on laying a foundation with focus on the Self-Management skills. The Second Year pays attention on People Skills. The soft skill training is compulsory for all the students (Self Finance Courses) and students registered for training and placements in and the minimum attendance for soft skills training is in accordance with the university rule of 75% minimum attendance. The training for Third Year students is a pre-placement package which focuses on assisting the student in securing the employment of choice. The training for the final year is compulsory for all students (Self Finance Courses & who have registered for Training and Placements.
