This year, the hiring processes are being conducted in a virtual mode like last year and the students have geared up for their interviews in a digital mode with innovative and newer patterns of interactions maximising the use of technology.
The entire interview process is being conducted in a single slot each day unlike other campuses. This process has been conceived to facilitate the right fitment both for students and recruiting organisations while providing ample time to recruiters to make selection judgements leading to better hiring decisions. To illustrate; this translates to NO graveyard shifts or multiple shifts within a day and a spread of companies across recruiting days, which is more than other campuses.
Being amongst the top-ranked educational institutions in India and the most employable in India (Global rank 27 as per Times Higher Education Global Employability Rankings 2021); IIT Delhi provides education to students across a variety of domains to cater to the needs of the nation and industry.
IIT Delhi is looking forward to a vibrant recruiting season for all visiting companies on the campus.
