Placement Procedure

This procedure is valid for all categories of students, for job and internship placements through OCCaP. Please see the page for detailed instructions/rules for students.

The Placement Season begins in October and goes on till May.

Invitations with the placement timeline and the other relevant information are sent out to the recruiters by OCCaP. New recruiters can contact OCCaP directly by sending a brief email [] explaining their interest.

Recruiters are registered on the OCCaP website. All the registered recruiters have individual login credentials for their account. The website is the interactive portal of job opportunities.

The recruiters fill a Job Description Form containing details of the job and the offer using their online account.
They should provide compensation breakup details of the posted job opportunity.

OCCaP will schedule visits of recruiters for pre placement talks. The Job Description is made available to eligible students.

Interested and eligible (as per the criteria specified by the recruiter) students show their willingness to appear for the recruitment process of a company by signing in details online. Details of all such students become available to the organisation for downloading or viewing through the OCCaP account.

Recruiters can shortlist students. Recruiters are also urged to maintain a waitlist of students who can be interviewed in the event of non-availability of some of the shortlisted students

OCCaP will schedule visits of recruiters for pre placement talks, tests and personal interviews.

Recruiters visit the campus on the alloted date(s) and conduct tests and/or interviews according to their recruitment process.
