IoBM lays tremendous emphasis on its close collaboration with the government, firms, banks and leading HR consultants so as to ensure appropriate induction of its graduates into such organizations. Close linkages are maintained with CEO’s and Heads of Departments in organizations so as to provide the best career prospects for graduates. Efforts are made to match the talents of students with requirements of both multinational and local organizations.

Emphasis has been placed on the requirement of Career Fair Seminars. They provide a meeting ground between the corporate world and graduates with the provision of resumes to HR representatives where students are selected for jobs against their requirements immediately, or at a later stage since their personal data remains easily available with such organizations for possible employment. In Career Seminars, graduates are given fresh insight into the corporate world with detailed discussions on the writing of resumes and methodology in performing well during interviews.

IoBM’s Internship & Placement Department provides a firm commitment to its graduates for developing careers. This begins from the point the student is inducted and continues with a lifelong partnership. In the past we have assisted our graduates in finding careers for our alumni as well. Some of the activities designed for placing students include, but are not limited to.

This publication is circulated to about 150 national and multinational companies and is an essential tool for being placed in the market.
