ISB Placements Process:

  • At ISB, the placement process takes about four months.

  • Through a series of on-campus presentations and hundreds of job advertisements, students get the opportunity to learn about recruitment companies with a presence both nationally and worldwide.

  • The first stage of the placement process involves recruiters giving pre-placement talks (PPT) to the student body.

  • The organisations' philosophies and objectives are the main topics of discussion. Students respond to the questions with "expressions of interest (EOI)".

  • After the recruiters have made a list of qualified candidates, the Career Advancement Services (CAS) staff gets in touch with the students.

  • Campus interviews come next, and then businesses make offers. Recruiters may also speak with candidates off-campus.

  • The majority of the placement process happens over the course of ten days. However, the final interviews and placements take a long.
