POD: The interactive platform for students, alumni and placement teams


Aug 17, 2020

Alumni are the brand ambassadors of your institution. They are the people who were once closely associated with your institution and thus, strongly endorse your brand’s core values. They might also share their college experience with friends, co-workers, current and prospective students which helps promote your college. Moreover, they give back to the institution in more ways than one as they often provide financial support and offer to help students in their areas of expertise. Therefore, it’s essential to have good relations with them and keep them updated regarding the progress of the institution.

As the TPOs are an essential link between the students and organizations, they must coordinate with them both. Details of the companies visiting the campus for placement, job profiles, date and venue of the interview and recruitment process must be relayed accurately and promptly to the students. The college officials must also communicate with organizations as they need to stay abreast with details such as information related to the company, job profiles they are recruiting for and remuneration offered.

Effective communication is key to an organization’s success. It’s absolutely crucial for students and college officials to be in sync in order to have a smooth and a hassle-free placement drive. As the future of students is at stake, you must ensure that there’s no lapse in communication. They must be immediately informed about all the important placement related activities that they must be aware of. Therefore, you need to have a communication platform in place where students, alumni and placement officials can interact with each other.
