Campus Recruitment Training Preparation aka CRT Prep is in an initiative by Saffrony Institute of Technology to familiarize Saffronites with various career options available after graduating from engineering and also to drill them for the same right from 3rd semester onward till the 8th semester.
CRT Prep covers important aspects of ‘How to Write Research Papers?’, ‘Essay Writing’, ‘How to Build a Strong CV?’ and ‘Basics of Time Management’ among 4 levels of Aptitude Training namely - 'Mathematical Aptitude', 'Verbal Aptitude', 'Quantitative Analysis', and 'Logical Reasoning'.
Under this program students also participate in Mock Group Discussions and Mock Personal Interviews so they can be all set for the numerous rounds of recruitment in the Public or Private sector when they graduate.
These sessions are instrumental in laying down a strong foundation for students with Engineering background and below are the glimpses of the same:
Let's assume for a minute that you are the founder and owner of a very prestigious company and you are looking for recruits. Will you hire a student with a very good academic score? Sure, why not!
Now think again. Will you hire a student with ONLY a very good academic score and lacking expertise in soft-skills such as effective communication, complex problem solving, judgment & decision making? We won't be wrong in assuming that this time the answer is No!
Today, we are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution where it is incumbent upon graduates to have mastery on their technical skills along with people-skills & numerous other soft-skills. Moreover, they will be competing with Artificial Intelligence driven by Machine Learning, and Robots that are replacing people with monotonous occupations that don't require much of these skills.
Hence, Saffrony Institute of Technology introduced a two-hour weekly session named "Sharpen Your Skills" which will train Saffronites in skills cited by the Global Challenge Insight Report, 2016 titled: The Future of Jobs - by World Economic Forum.
Here are the glimpses of the sessions conducted under SYS by industry experts, faculty members and even the students of Saffrony Institute of Technology:
