Placement Cell

T he Placement Cell of H.R. College is a Student Managed professional body, which is for the students, by the students, and of the students. It acts as a liaison between the corporate sector and the young, aspirational students of our college. The Placement Cell strives to groom students for the industry while assisting them in getting varied and suitable job opportunities. The opportunities offered as quantitative as well as qualitative, to correctly fit the skills of the students.

The Placement Cell believes in a collaborative approach and therefore does not restrict the corporate engagement to only the third-year, ready-to-graduate students. As a student body, we acknowledge the need for the ‘trial and error’ method for our students from the very first year. Conducting rigorous internship drives, irrespective of any factors has been one of our strongest initiatives to give our students exactly what is required in their day and age.

Having modified the committee to the unfortunately challenging circumstances, the Placement Cell has very articulately provided internship opportunities virtually.

To recruit from H.R. College, reach out to the Student Joint Chairpersons from Monday to Friday between 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm or mail us at
