About KRYPTUS

The Placement Cell of Kalindi College, ‘Kryptus’ came into existence in September 2017. Currently, the team consists of 30 student members who work with utmost determination 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 dissemination. As has always been, the prime motive of the placement cell is to provide the undergraduate students of the college with internship and placement opportunities in organizations of various industries.

During this era of competition, being equipped with the required skills is a must. Hence, Kryptus has not only focused in providing internships and placements, but also organized webinars under ‘Soft Skills Development Cell’ that gave the students an insight about the skill sets expected by the recruiters. Soft Skills Development Cell is just an extension of the Placement Cell ‘Krytpus’, that helps students to gather knowledge on group discussions, personal interviews, resume building and other such requirements.

Activities undertaken

Since the academic year 2020 – 2021 has completely been a virtual one, the Placement Cell has functioned in full online mode to help the students earn internships and placements. The seminars were converted into webinars for the continual provision of the required skill sets to the students.

  • In August 2020, the new academic session of ‘Kryptus’ began with an online orientation to provide a glimpse of the working of the Placement Cell to its college students and to help them know the corporate world a bit better. The orientation was attended by around 100 students.
  • Internships have always been helpful to students not just as an addition to their CVs, but also as an addition to their skills. Therefore, Kryptus initiated the activities for the session with an internship provided by the organization, Amjunction, followed by another organization SuccessR. Both these companies provided various internship profiles to the undergraduate students of our college.
  • Apart from internships, Placements are another important, rather a necessity for most of the final year or alumni students. Hence, Kryptus got one such opportunity from Z1 Media that extended its Business Development Executive Profile to the final year students and the alumni of the college.
  • As a large number of students are usually skewed towards an MBA degree post their undergraduation, therefore Kryptus felt the need to facilitate the students with proper knowledge regarding the exams for this post-graduation degree. A webinar on ‘How to prepare for CAT/GMAT’ was conducted on 23rd August, 2020 for I and II year students by Mr. Saurabh Mittal, an alumnus of FMS and DTU. The webinar was fruitful as it witnessed the participation of around 60 students getting their doubts and queries cleared from the expert.
  • MS Excel is not a skill; it is a mandate in today’s world. Therefore, keeping this in mind, Kryptus in collaboration with Yuja Mascot Consultancy Hub conducted another webinar on 30th August, 2020 to provide the students with knowledge about MS Excel and its importance.
  • There are a lot of domains that can be explored when it comes to internships. Kollege Konnection, Step Up Student, Clear Exam, Flairboat are some of the organizations that provided plethora of internships to the students in different domains.
  • In September 2020, ‘JDM Financial Services’ in collaboration with Kotak Life Insurance and Investment Sector extended its internship opportunity to the undergraduate students of Kalindi College. Out of the 50 number of applicants, 2 students got the opportunity to intern with the organization post the selection process.
  • As far as skills are concerned, interning with an NGO also equips a student with the relevant skills while fulfilling the objective of community service. Therefore, Kryptus facilitated an internship opportunity with an NGO named Ahimsa for its college students to make them aware about and understand the work culture of NGOs.
  • A student is usually perplexed when he/she is on the verge of his/her final year. Therefore, to clear the bewilderment, the Placement Cell collaborated with T.I.M.E. Institute to conduct a webinar on ‘What after Graduation?’ The webinar was conducted by Ms. Tarannum Naseem wherein she mentioned about the kind of opportunities lined up for students as per their undergraduate course.
  • Frantiger Business Consulting Pvt. Ltd., another organization that provided both internship as well as placement opportunities to the students of the college.
  • The preliminary step to get ahead in any field is an ‘Aptitude Test’. Consequently, Kryptus gave an opportunity to the students to appear in a ‘Mock Aptitude Test’ by Prep Junction where the organization gave a full-fledged test to the students to give them a glimpse of the kind of questions that can be expected in such exams.
  • GAP Entertainment, MBAtrek Pvt. Ltd., Zori World, GoDutch, FinCradle, TALKx are some of the organizations that provided internship opportunities to Kalindi College students.
  • The first relation between an applicant and a recruiter is the ‘Resume’. Better the resume, higher is the chance of an applicant getting shortlisted for further selection procedures. Keeping in mind this basic requirement, Kryptus collaborated with Edudictive that conducted a webinar about the Do’s and Don’ts of Resume and gave insights to students on how to build an impressive Resume.
  • During the academic session, the Cell provided several internships from organizations such as The Story Lane, Imbue, YMC Hub, My Ways and other organizations.
  • Placement Opportunity from ICICI Prudential and EigoPathshala were also provided for the 2021 batch and the alumni of the College.
  • A total of 11 Internship Profiles were being offered to the students by an organization named Arbitrium, while Human Resource India provided the students with a total of 3 internship profiles.
  • The journey from ‘Campus to Corporate’ is both confusing as well as exciting. Therefore, Mr. Gagandeep Singh, who is currently in Wood – P&O Global Shared Services spared couple of hours out of his busy schedule to conduct a webinar for the students of our college where he explained all that it takes from campus to corporate and shared his personal experiences.
  • In February 2021, a Placement Opportunity was provided to the batch of 2021 and the alumni by Decathlon for both Part Time as well as a Full Time Employee for the profile of ‘Omni Sports Leader’.
  • Several other organizations such as Bajaj Capital, Apna Campus, Pixstory, ZeroKaata, PB Financial Services provided internship opportunities to the students.
  • Meanwhile, organizations such as Reading Right, Newzera Tech Labs Pvt. Ltd., New Directions Counselling Services provided placement opportunities to the final year and the alumni students.

Though the entire year had been completely online, the Cell still worked relentlessly to find good internship and placement opportunities for the students of the College. During this tough time, the Cell got an overwhelming response from the students in the webinars conducted along with a fair number of students getting themselves enrolled in internships. With this, the Cell successfully conducted its academic session of 2020 – 2021.
