Campus Placement Cell of the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has commenced its operations since February 2005.
Initiating its series of campus recruitments, the University is making arrangements with multi-national corporations and IT companies for placement of its various students in the areas of information technology and communication services.
The mission and endeavour of this Cell is to enhance and facilitate the process of gainful employment for its divergent and distributive learner population for entry-level jobs as well as mid-career level employment opportunities, matching and commensurate with their personal and academic profiles. In the present day business scenario, companies demand job-ready candidates for employment at the shortest possible time period.
The qualified students are expected to be equipped with employable skills suitable for respective sectors. Taking into account this scenario, the cell has aligned its strategies to enhance the Employability Quotient of our students by imparting employable skills training after their skills mapping and bridging the gaps through appropriate training.
The cell conducts on-campus and off-campus placement and employability enhancement activities at the headquarters and at some Regional Centres.
The CPC will be operationalizing placement cells at 6 Regional Centres of IGNOU that have very large IGNOU alumni in order to reach out to the dispersed IGNOU alumni more effectively.
