Use POD to prepare students for placement season

With college years drawing to a close, students are all set to start their professional careers. As the campus placement drive is in full swing, students brush up on their skills and prepare for written tests, group discussions and interviews as they yearn to land a job in the organization of their dreams. Companies no longer look for students with just a brilliant academic record. They look for candidates who they think would be a good fit in their organization.

When a student joins a professional course such as Engineering, his ultimate goal is to get placed in an organization of his choice. So, he looks for colleges that have an excellent reputation along with an impeccable placement record but he forgets that joining a reputed college alone doesn’t guarantee placement in top firms. The colleges can only provide students with a platform and the necessary tools to achieve their goals. Sachin Tendulkar is known as the ‘God of Cricket’ because of his hard work and persistence and not just because he has a ‘good’ bat. Similarly, it’s up to the students to rise up to the occasion and prove their mettle.

Preparing for campus placement requires perseverance and continuous evaluation of performance so that they can work on their weaknesses and further build on their strengths. Here’s where Pod.ai comes into the picture, it can help students crack interviews and get placed in their dream companies:

Continuous assessment of student performance: The Training and Placement Officers or TPOs can keep track of the progress of each student and notify them about the same so as to help them identify their shortcomings and work on them.

Training provided based on performance review: Along with interacting with the organizations and inviting them for campus recruitment, TPOs are also responsible for providing students with sufficient training with tools such as mock tests, mock interviews etc. Once they have an idea about the performance of a student, they will be in a better position to guide him and provide valuable tips.

Information about recruitment trends: Students can be notified about the recruitment trends of organizations as it will help them have a better understanding of the level of competency that is expected out of them so that they can prepare accordingly. An idea about the hiring patterns of companies helps you make predictions regarding the number of candidates that they might hire in the near future.

TPOs have significant role to play in preparing students for the interviews and ensuring that all the deserving candidates get placed well. To make this possible, it is necessary to have an in-depth knowledge of the current performance of students and the skills that they lack. Therefore, a performance tracking tool is necessary for TPOs to assess the performance of students and help them work on their areas of improvement. With Pod.ai , you can not only closely monitor the real-time progress of each student, but also track the progress of students year on year.
