The Paramount Efforts of The CDC of the College

Career Development Centre (CDC) of the college aims at connecting the students with
the best possible opportunities by providing them with a thriving platform and an early
corporate exposure. Hence, CDC took the initiative of preparing a Comprehensive
Information Document for the students sitting for placements by collecting data from the
students who already appeared in the processes last year. The document encompasses
job descriptions, details regarding placement processes, questions asked during different
rounds (technical and HR), etc. CDC also initiated a project called ‘The Buddy Project’
wherein each second-year student has been allotted a third-year student as their mentor
to guide them through their placements.
Another initiative taken up by the cell is CBS Alumni for Recruitment and Excellence
(CARE) Program, which aims to bridge the gap between the students and the corporate
world. This year, the program witnessed participation of 16 mentors in assisting the
second-year students by helping them to get exposure to the dynamic business
environment.
Like every year, CDC also conducted resume authentication programs to constantly
keep a check on the information included in resumes and make sure that only authentic
details go through to the companies.
With many ambitious projects, initiatives and extensive training and development
sessions, CDC works towards adding values to its students and raising the college stature
via placements and internships.
