Get a glimpse into b-school life with our new free webinar series - #YOBOLive. Connect with students or alumni from IIMs and other top b-schools and find out how to make the most of b-school, because You Only B-School Once! This week we look at the famous (or infamous) placement committee. The backbone of every b-schools recruitment process, the PlaceComm is subject to gossip, to love, hate and everything in between. So why does one choose to be a part of PlaceComm despite the hard work and focus it needs? Why spend significant amounts of time on PlaceComm instead of academics at b-school? How does PlaceComm help individuals grow?
That’s what we discuss in this week's session. With a Recruitment Secretary (2018-20) from IIM A, Placecom Coordinator from IIM Indore & IIM K, Placecom Secretary from MDI Gurgaon, Placecom Member from MICA, find out all those juicy details that you’d like to know!
Time: 8 PM onwards
