Placement Process

Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad

The Placement process at IIT Hyderabad usually starts in the month of JULY by sending out a formal E-mail inviation to the company/organization with relevant information and time schedules. Interested companies will fill the online Employer's Registration Form( ERF) by creating their account. Old users may use their Login Credentials to create a new ERF. We have a technical team to help you in ERF filling if needed. The Job deatils are shown to the students once placement office accepts the ERF & interested students can start registering for the company. In practice we usually give a week's time to register after the ERF is opened to the students.

Companies may invite CVs of interested students and shortlist students on the basis of their profiles ten days prior to their campus visit. The companies are required to shortlist candidates from the pool of applicants and send the same to the Placement Office at the earliest (at least three days in advance of the visit to the campus). The company can request a visit to the campus for a Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) before the Campus Placements or can combine it with the final recruitment. Pre interview screening can be done from October soon after the midsemester exams. A mutually convenient date** and time for Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) & selection process is fixed.

Recruiters conduct interviews for shortlisted students on campus on specified dates & slots and make offers. They may also conduct off campus interviews with students in special cases. The company is required to present the final list of offers on the same day. The Placement Office would handover the company Offer Letters to the students and the student offer acceptances would be forwarded to the company.

*The ERF includes the required contact details, profile of potential recruits, compensation package, date of visit, selection procedure, etc.

1. Job profile and Career growth prospects.

2. Compensation package.

3. Likely number of offers this year.
