About KRYPTUS

The Placement Cell of Kalindi College, ‘Kryptus’ came into existence in September 2017. Currently, the team consists of 16 student members who work incessantly to deliver the best to fellow students. The induction of the student council was to have representation of students in the placement cell to better understand their needs and to smooth the channels of communication and information dissemination. As has always been, the foremost focus of the Placement Cell is to provide the undergraduate students of the college with opportunities to intern and get placed in reputed organizations in the private sector, be it MNCs or the NGOs.

A related challenge is to equip students with the skills to face the process of screening and selection used by potential employers. Based upon feedback sought from employing agencies during placement drives and realizing the need to bridge the existing skill gap between students’ potential and employers’ expectation, the Placement Cell came up with the idea of commencing a ‘Soft Skill Development Club’ this year to provide guidance to the students and help them understand better about the requirement of the companies. A host of activities were conducted by the Placement Cell in collaboration with the Soft Skill Development Club over the year 2019-20.
