Building Campus Presence
A successful recruiting effort is possible only when the students know you better. NIASoM offers you many opportunities to build a good corporate image among the students. The following are our recommendations for the same.

Pre-Placement Talks(PPTs)
The pre-placement talks are presentations organized by the company on the college campus. Over the years they have become the primary forum for company-student interactions. These talks give the student a chance to learn more about your company, your people and your work culture. The students can also learn about the opportunities for growth, learning and advancement that your company offers. They can also form a firsthand impression of your company and make an informed decision about applying for the placements.

We have over the years found that senior executives are the most effective in delivering the PPTs and also making a strong statement of commitment to recruiting from the institute. The PPTs can take place on any mutually convenient date. If the company wishes to display some promotional material on campus, the final form of the material can be sent to the placement office, which will arrange for the same.

Conferences and Workshops
Various events, speaker series, panel discussion, conferences and workshops can be organized in which your company may participate directly or contribute through partnerships.
