Recruiter Relationship Development Programme (RRDP)

Established in 1958 as an institute of National Importance, The Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay has now evolved into a globally renowned university. It was ranked 36th in Engineering in US News & World Report's World's Best Colleges and Universities rankings based on the Times Higher Education-QS World University Rankings for 2008. The fact that the institute has been attracting more than 50% of the top rankers in the IIT- Joint Entrance Examination for the past 5 consecutive years itself speaks for the calibre and dominance of IIT Bombay.

While IIT Bombay enjoys a healthy association with over 200 recruiters the placement cell constantly endeavours to stabilize these associations into long term relationships. Apart from these best of efforts are put into familiarising our new recruiters with the campus enabling them to structure their hiring strategies for mutual benefit.

Building a campus presence is an essential first step in organizing a successful recruiting visit to IIT Bombay. Prior information and contact aids the students to know the company, its environment and the nature of work better and helps the students take an informed decision. It also assists the company in evaluating the campus and students for a prospective long-term relationship. There are many ways in which you can generate awareness about your firm on the campus. Some of these have been listed below:

Campus Tour - is an excellent opportunity for company representatives to come down to our campus and interact with the Placement Office/Team. A short presentation followed by a tour of our vast campus can give our recruiters first hand information about the academic, research and extra-curricular facilities available at IIT Bombay that help its students develop skill sets which are on par with any leading international university.

Pre Placement Talks (PPT) / Work Shops / Technical Talks - is a great way for our recruiters to establish their campus presence and also an opportunity for students to interact with senior executives and know more about the firm, work profile and growth opportunities.

Summer/Winter Internship Programme - can be offered to pre-final year students from May-July. While this programme offers students ample exposure to the firm and its work culture, it also offers the company an opportunity to evaluate the candidate on various parameters and extend pre-Placement Offers to the best fit.

Our Placement Team is glad to consider any other ideas to help its recruiter's foster stronger relations.
