The most critical part of this year’s placement has been to find the right kind of vacancy for our students, where some employer segments have been impacted due to market conditions.
We owe our success to the unwavering support of the leading employers in the field of real estate, construction and infrastructure both in India and developed markets like Middle East,
The quality of talent produced at this specialized institution (and placed in the last two placement session), has created a positive word of mouth in the industry. This is because, we believe in preparing our students for lifelong success. We train them to act with integrity, honesty and responsibility at work and hence employers prefer to work with our students.
Indian built environment at a turning point – towards a more professional industry
Indian built environment is going through a fundamental shift where the sector is finding new ways of doing business based on credibility and transparency. This big change is driven by the government in the form of Real Estate Regulation Act, GST, Benami Transactions Act amongst many other initiatives. The sector is moving towards more and more professionalism day by day and qualified youngsters will find a better pitch to begin their innings.
As international property consultants are expanding their foothold in the market and foreign direct investments are increasing – new professions are opening up the relatively conservative Indian market. In the long term, India will compete with developed economies in terms of professionalism and transparency in this sector, while currently the sector is going through turbulence and dynamic disruption. Organizations that are able to adapt and embrace changes will perform better while others will struggle and perish.
In such times, it becomes increasingly crucial for us to gate keep and bring only the credible and reliable companies on-board for placements. In near future when war for talent will gain motion, our intention is to pass on our best talent in the right hands.
