Placement Cell Loreto College, Kolkata

Placement Cell

The need to bring students and prospective employers together and offer students career guidance and practical inputs had always been there. In response to this need, the Placement Cell of the college was started in 2012. In the last five years, the Placement Cell has grown steadily. The cell is currently led by Dr. Soumya Dutta, Dr. Devika Guha and Dr. Subhasree Basu.

The cell aims to provide a broad ground to the students of the college to explore the different employment avenues available to them. While many of the students opt for higher education, a major section of the student body enters the job marker right after college. The cell is instrumental in bringing interested companies/firms in touch with the student body. As part of its activities, the cell invites different companies and organisations to make presentations which help students to understand the requirements of a particular job. The presentations are followed by recruitment drives in which the cell assists the recruiting organisation. A database for students interested in jobs is maintained and the cell reaches out to students with job related information even after they have passed out.

Companies where fresh graduates from Loreto College have been placed include Cognizant Technology Solutions, ITC, Deloitte, Citi Bank, HSBC Bank, Syndicate Bank, Indigo Airlines, Jet Airways, Emirates, Teach For India, Biswajit Sarkar IP Attorneys (law firm). Wipro, Price Water House Cooper, Tata Consultancy Services, Sage Publications and Chrysalis Consulting have also expressed their desire to conduct placements for the students in near future.
