InsideIIM Best 50 Season 2 is here

This is Season 2. We are on a hunt for students with the best profiles on Business school campuses again. Tell us why you are special. Your profile will be rated by recruiters, and they will shortlist the best 50 profiles in India.

As B school students you have already rated India’s Recruiters in the InsideIIM Recruitment Survey 2015. It is now time for recruiters to rate you. This is your chance to show your best side to recruiters. Rather than helplessly wait for a shortlist, or languish with a brilliant answer to a question the interviewer never asks, take the opportunity to show the world why you are special, on your own terms. We will publish feature stories on the life and career of the 50 students with the best profiles (after taking permission from you if win)

Last year, we received applications from enthusiasts all over India ready to do something different. The profiles were evaluated by our esteemed panel from Edelweiss. After a thorough and unbiased evaluation of the profiles, 30 Top Most Employable students list was published.

Traditionally, recruiters visit campuses and judge you within say 20 minutes for a life changing event in your life. Eager to introduce something different last year, we thought why not give the students a platform to differentiate themselves even before the recruiters go to their campus. So, here is your chance to be one of those candidates. Final List of students will not be ranked in any particular order, it will be your glorified badge forever. Your experiences make you. Show us the real you!
