Placement is just one of the meeting points between NIILM-CMS and the industry. It is our endeavor to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between the students and the industry. NIILM-CMS provides a platform for placement where companies are invited to recruit students of various specializations and work experience. Potential employers are able to undertake on-campus recruitment through a stream-lined process of registrations, PPTs and selection. Understanding the significance of using the right aptitude and knowledge skill-sets for the right task, the Placement Team at NIILM-CMS seeks to provide corporate and students the best opportunities for mutually beneficial selection. Responsible for identifying the right student-organization fit, the Placement Team selects, targets and invites companies for Final and Summer Internship Placements.
Student Empowerment is a key feature of life at NIILM Centre for Management Studies. NIILM-CMS Centre for Corporate Relations is an integral part of the institute, seeks to identify the best student for the opportunity provided by a prospective employer.
