Shivam Patel sir along with 5 of TPC’s representatives had a virtual meeting on Saturday (22-08-2020).
The main objective of this meet was to improve alumni connection with IET in terms of creating/sharing job/internship opportunities.
Taking the previous 3-4 years as an example, just a handful of our alumni helped TPC in adding new companies to the list of our annual recruiters. This institute, having such a vast and diverse alumni base, has tremendous potential and it can alter this trend in a very short span of time. What we need is a start!
In order to improve the existing scenario and to start a chain reaction with regards to this topic, we discussed introducing gratitude/recognition points (KARMA points for instance) for our alumni, when such a deed (helping the institute in terms of placements) is carried out. For example - The helping hand will be rewarded with x KARMA points.
Along with the expected alumni’s efforts in this direction, TPC will be working on another initiative. Traditionally, at the beginning of every placement session, we send our recruiters a formal invitation mail for campus placements. Along the line, we will be sending a similar invite mail to our alumni (having a google form perhaps) as well. The ones capable to help the institute with its placements (in any way possible) can revert to that message accordingly.
The next meet is scheduled 3 weeks later
A word from our side - When we talk about bringing a change in any institute or creating a healthy atmosphere for its students, its placement scenario turns out to be the most crucial aspect. Although this will be a tiny step toward the destination we all aspire to reach one day; a small effort from each one of us can create substantial changes and give IET-Lucknow the name and status it deserves…
