IIMB provides placement assistance to all students of EPGP. The Career Development Services office (CDS) works closely with the EPGP Student Placement Committee on the campus recruitment process which consists of the following stages:
CDS and the student committee reach out to companies and invite them to participate in the placement process. Companies can also reach out to CDS and express an interest in recruitment. The companies are then scheduled for a Pre-placement talk.
The Pre-placement talk (PPT) is a platform for interaction between the company and the students. The representatives of the company share the profile of the company, key aspects of its business, work environment, and opportunities available to the students. The presentation is followed by a Q&A session where students interact with company officials to get a better understanding of the company and potential roles. A typical pre-placement session is scheduled for 90 minutes. In view of the academic calendar of the students, the sessions are normally scheduled between 4pm to 6pm on weekdays, and between 8am and 8pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Interested students apply to the company through the CDS office. A detailed resume is submitted by the student as part of the application process.
The final placement process is conducted over an extended period of time beginning in the second week of November. This gives the companies ample time for any customized selection processes that may be required. The final placement interview gives the company and the student an opportunity to discuss the role in detail and make the right choice.
Offers and Acceptance
The company can make an offer to the student after the final interview. The offer should include details of role, location, remuneration, and other relevant terms and conditions required by the candidate to make a decision. The offer is communicated by the company to the CDS office which in turn communicates it to the selected student. The acceptance of an offer is governed by placement rules of the EPGP which are framed at the beginning of the academic year and may vary from year to year.
Career Support Services
Prior to the placement interviews, students have access to various career support activities which help them improve their skills as well as make better career decisions. Some of the career support activities available to students are:
- Resume workshop

- Career mapping and counseling sessions
