With 2 canceled summer Internship offers and daily application for 5-10 odd internship listing on LinkedIn and Internshala, many students like me were a bit in the chaos of what would happen in the internship as it is mandatory to do in MBA and plays a huge role in final placements. I was recommended to the platform Placecom.org from one of my mentor.
I explored the platform and was amazed at first by seeing 2-3 internship listing, and that too paid internship because even good performing brands are using the crisis as an excuse to wave off stipend as the demand is high and people are ready to it. I applied on the platform and got an offer in the desired role with a decent stipend with the help of this platform and with an excellent startup firm. Placecom.org has helped many students in the time of crisis. It has helped one of our collegue student Rahul to be the CEO and contribute more towards the success of the platform. Thank you, Placecom.org team , for this great initiative. - RISHABH (THE FINTECH MEETUP)
I am sending you this mail as feedback to Placecom portal's process that helped me get an offer for an internship. The whole idea is very ingenious and it felt very tailored to me as an MBA student. The administration can look for verification and background checks to better filter worthwhile companies and internship opportunities. The portal seems very smooth in terms of usage and was very intuitive.
My utmost gratitude to the team that made this possible. - Kuldeep Chowdari (TLYT)
Placecom.org is an excellent platform for students who are looking for internship opportunities. The thing which I liked the most is its easy and hassle-free onboarding/ sign-up process, where after uploading the resume and entering few basic details, students can apply for any company/role they are interested in, with a single click - Vipul Ladda (THE FINTECH MEETUP )
The experience with Placecom.org was good. Right from the starting of registration to getting my internship offer at Spider G, the entire process was quite smooth. There were detailed options of choosing a particular field of interest. There were a good number of companies providing a reasonable stipend. The sample interview questions are particularly helpful as they will come handy during the final placements. But most of them are general HR questions and there lacked technical questions when I last visited the website. Like for a marketing profile, do we expect questions on STP or 4P or distribution channel and etc.? As a last note, Placecom.org can also play a role in providing final placements to the passing batch of 2019-21 as corona will somewhat affect us too. - Somesh Mohanty (SPIDER G)
I found Placecom.org an excellent platform to support students amidst this pandemic whose Internship offers have been postponed or cancelled. It is a very hassle-free and user-friendly website where students could apply to N number of companies available on the website by a single click after uploading their CVs. I was myself fortunate enough to get an internship within two days of applying.
The PPO/ PPI stories of students of previous batches available on the website are very inspiring. This initiative is indeed a boon for students in this COVID-19 scenario.
Hoping for Placecom.org to continue their great work and help the students in more innovative ways in future as well. - Yashi Tiwari (COVIDINDIA.ORG)
I loved the transparency in the way placecom operates which is completely opposite of real placecom in colleges. I believe you guys need to have a much more formal template of an offer. When we see an offer is being made via mail we need to send it to our college placecom.
Also, some companies may or may not honour the stipend amount written there. Just make sure it doesn't become a new normal of having accelerated numbers in stipend amount. To be honest I loved the website and the way it operates. The transparency to apply to any organization is what helped me push my cv to all the places without an iota of doubt - PRANEETH PATNAIK ( OPMAGIC.AI)
I am grateful of placement.org for coming up with this platform and providing an opportunity despite the current on-going pandemic situation. “Obstacles are just opportunities” is what I have learnt and had this fortune to work together with an amazing group of people this summer. Due to Placecom.org, I got the project I was eagerly looking for along, it being remote saved travel and commute time. The process for the selection was problem-free and transparent which helped us with Application and Assessment in an authentic way. We also didn’t have to track multiple platforms as this provided the best of the internships along with stipends. Thanks to the entire team for bringing this up and have surely recommend to all my peers and will be looking forward for more internships via this platform. - Nyari Mehta (THE FINTECH MEETUP)
I came to know about Placecomm.org through a whatsapp group of professionals. Definitely it seemed interesting . As due to COVID opportunities were limited and having a new platform with work from home offers seemed like a great help. It was in April month , I had not got any conformation on my initial campus internship which I was supposed to join as planned. Due to Lockdown It was quite common to hear internship being cancelled.
Thinking on all these , I started looking on placecomm site , I applied for companies and within 15 days I got a reply of being selected for a interview . I aced the interview and now I am working with the company as Marketing Specialist Intern. Some Features I noted about Placecomm is:
During this pandemic it was really difficult to think about internship specially for a student like me who belongs to Rural Management, where field work is a primary thing. I was not aware about this site earlier. But one of my friend from placecom team asked me to apply through this. And I was lucky that back to back I was shortlisted for three companies, out of which I selected the one I was interested in. Even the companies that are present on this site are good and reliable. I am happy that I got this opportunity and I am learning so many new skills. - - PRAGATI ISHA (QUEPPELIN TECHNOLOGY)
