The Campus Placement Cell (CPC), IGNOU was established in the year 2005 at the headquarters of IGNOU to act as a nodal centre for all placement related activities so as to facilitate the process of gainful employment for its divergent and distributive learner population available across the country. One of the main objectives of the cell is to provide meaningful employment opportunities to its students as well as alumni at all levels matching with their personal and academic profiles. In fact, CPC works on the premise that the right candidate meets the right recruiter at the right place.

In the present business scenario, companies demand job-ready candidates for employment at the shortest possible time period. The CPC assures logistic support to the visiting companies at every stage of the placement process by making the university infrastructure/resources available to them. The CPC, therefore, acts as an interface between the industry and the students/alumni. CPC also has a plan to strengthen the Alumni Association of the university so that the resourceful alumnus and their affiliating companies may be identified for helping the students for their suitable placement.

The CPC conducts various Campus Placement Drives/Recruitment Drives/Job Fairs and employability enhancement activities throughout the year at the Headquarters, Regional Centres, Study Centres and Company premises.

In addition, CPC is planning to expand its activity base even further by introducing new initiatives like preparing soft skill modules for the students. This activity would further enable CPC in providing better placement opportunities to the students/alumni and thus, enable a better functioning of CPC.
