College authority tries to provide continuous effort for organizing Career orientation programmes for generating enthusiasm about their career opportunities among our students under the supervision of Career Counselling Cell. In this respect we can mention the role of TATA Consultancy Services, a prime corporate Institution that had started to conduct on-campus interview from the previous session for the final year students (Arts, Science & Commerce) of our college. TCS officials usually initiate their programme with a general discussion with the enrolled students along with a fair overview about BPO (Business Progress Outsourcing) Sector. Interview session runs for a number of rounds and at the end of the final round eligible students are selected for the job at their organization.
In the session 2016-2017 five students have been selected out of 92 enrolled students in the said on- campus interview by TCS.
