Microsoft-owned professional social network LinkedIn has signed an MoU with the Ministry of Human Resource Development for all colleges affiliated with the All India Council for Technical Education to use its platform for their placement process.
Placements, a product that LinkedIn has built for India, allows students and placement officers at colleges maximise their reach when searching for prospective jobs. Students will also be able to take an online assessment test which will give them access to openings in partner corporates.
Our objective with Placements is to help India's best talent get access to job opportunities, regardless of their location. We hope to bring students closer to their dream jobs through this platform, said Akshay Kothari, Country Manager and Head of Product at LinkedIn India, in a statement.
The company says adoption of Placements, which was launched in September has been great, with over 200,000 students registering on the platform and making over 1.2 million job applications. So far LinkedIn has signed up 35 companies for its online test programme and plans to add more.
