The Central Placement Cell has begun its registrations of both placements and internships for the academic year 2015-16. The varsity’s CPC serves as a platform in providing quality placements to students in reputed multinationals, government organizations, NGO’s and private companies. It acts as an interface between companies and students, channelizing talent towards opportunity.

The CPC assures logistic support to companies from the very beginning of the recruitment process. The university is equipped with a variety of infrastructural facilities such as the Conference hall, Library, Equal Opportunity Cell (to empower students with physical disabilities), Training Laboratories, International Relation, etc. to facilitate the entire process.

The registration is quite a simple process. Interested students can create a login ID with a password at the CPC official website http://placement.du.ac.in. Registered students will be eligible to receive updates regarding placements and internships via emails and text messages. They’ll be provided with regular assistance and counselling for employment and entrepreneurship. The procedure includes a pre-placement presentation by the company, followed by the main placement process carrying a written test, group discussion and personal interview. The steps may vary as per the company’s discretion.

The recruitment process pumped up last year with over 850 students getting placed and pay packages weighing as heavy as Rs.8 lacs per annum. Multinationals like HCL Technologies, Wipro, Accenture, Genpact, and Tata Capital are in close liaison with the CPC. There was great hike in internship offers as well.
