The process of placement begins with the company giving a notification to the Institute about their itinerary. Generally, the placement cell of the institute gives a notification of the arrival of various companies to the cadets. Cadets are asked to volunteer for the company. Then the eligible cadets appear for Psychometric Test (or PI & LI). Based on scores, the company shortlists the cadets eligible to appear for the interview. Meanwhile, some companies, like Chevron, may ask the cadets to submit CV. Shortlisted cadets appear for the interview on the prescribed date and then wait for the final results.
