Summer Placements : XLRI Jamshedpur – Class of 2014 -16

Summer placements this season have been something of a party, at least at top B schools. Students from here have been making their joy known on Facebook, and for once, the draconian Placecoms didn’t seem to mind. From the victory dance at MDI Gurgaon, to euphoria at IIM L, B schools are having a good time. XLRI is having a great time. For the second year in succession, XLRI is the first to report its summer placements on InsideIIM. Summer placements were excellent for the batch of 2015 last year , especially in the form of a greater width and depth of profiles in finance. This year, it is even better. Here are some of the highlights of this summer placement season.

Highlights of summer placements at XLRI (as reported by the placement committee)

–   Largest ever batch of 365 students gets placed in record time of 3.5 days yet again with the Business Management Batch (184 in strength) getting placed in 2.5 days.

–   XLRI launched a parallel placement process called “Parivartan” for the students who voluntarily withdrew from the conventional placement process and sat for interviews in various top notch NGOs and Not for Profit Organizations. The agenda was to facilitate and offer opportunities to students who genuinely intend to participate in the social sector organisations. Two students were placed with the Tata Trust. The process was held and completed before the conventional Summer Placement Week.

–   International stints in summer internships increased, with firms like M.H. AlShaya, ABG, Altisource, HUL, Kellogg’s, Nomura, Pepsi, Godrej and a European Hedge Fund offering overseas roles.

–   Paid internships for all the students (consistent record in this area was maintained this year).

–   Carlyle recruited exclusively from XLRI. Avendus Capital recruited for its front end PE Syndication & M&A Advisory role. World Bank offered its Structured Products role to XLRI. The European Hedge Fund after offering it’s only PPO to XLRI returned to hire summer interns.

–   XLRI had participation from PE / VC firms like Uniquest Infra Ventures and an Angel Fund.

–   P&G’s and Nestlé’s S&M role for the Business Management students for Summer Internships returned after a long hiatus.

–   Around 46% of the offers were in the form of new roles that opened up on campus.
