ISB Student Policies – Class of 2019

As we enter the second half of the course at ISB, companies are going to ramp up efforts towards their visit to campus for final placements. Over 300 companies are expected to visit ISB over the next 6 months on campus to recruit you.

Chances are you haven’t been part of a career fair of this scale before and chances are you will never be again as well.

Campus placements have been happening at ISB since 2002 and this will be the 18th placement cycle at ISB.

 

Inputs are taken at the end of each placement cycle from both recruiters and students on what worked well and what didn’t work well and is added to the policy document to ensure a degree of fairness.

The Final Interview Form or the FIF is the central document around which offer records revolve and is the equivalent of an agreement. It is a one page document.

FIF Document – Annexure-1 (sample FIF/Blue Tag FIF)

The FIF form consists of 4 parts.

  • Part – I of the FIF contains the elements of the offer details discussed during the final interview, negotiated, along with the offer acceptance deadline and recruiter signature
  • Part – II of the FIF contains the student’s signature confirming that s/he has fully understood the terms on which the company may make an offer. If an offer is made by the company the student will receive it as one of the two offers which s/he is eligible for. However, signing on Part II of the FIF neither makes it mandatory for the student to accept the final offer nor the recruiter to make a final offer. Signature on Part 1, and Part 02, negotiated, of the FIF is not applicable for the Blue Tag Job postings
  • Part – III The company representative’s signature here and submitting the form to CAS (Career Advancement Services Department) confirms that the company is making an offer to the student on the above terms.
  • CAS makes the formal announcement on the placement portal. As soon as the offer is broadcasted as per the official time lines, student offer counter reduces by 1. Student gives his/her decision of accepting or declining before the deadline on the placement portal and it is also mandatory to sign on Part – IV of the FIF which will be given by the CAS office
  • For “Blue Tag” job descriptions, there will not be any signatures of FIF-Part I and Part – II as in regular FIF. A company will directly give the part III Signed FIF to the CAS, it will automatically be considered as an offer for the student. For example, if a student has two “live” offer counters and appears for a “Blue Tag” interview then in case s/he is made a job offer by the company, the student s offer counter will decrease by 1.

 

For the purpose of placements at ISB, the term offer means:

            Offer

A recruiter’s decision to hire the student at the end of their Placement Process comprising filling up the Final Interview Form (FIF), getting it countersigned by the student, signing the order format and handing over the same to CAS. A company making an offer to a student without the students’ consent does not constitute an offer, (This is to ensure that a company does not make 2 random offers to a student and then have him debarred from placements on account of the 2 offer policy) except in the case of blue tag job offer.

 

  • Final Interview Form (FIF) – At the end of the final interview post negotiations, the recruiter and the student to whom they are considering making an offer will sign an FIF. The recruiter is free to make offers to as many students from among those who have signed the FIF’s. It can be less than or equal to the number of FIF’s signed by students
     
  • A student is not supposed to inform his/her salary or offer details to other students. This will be a violation and students will be barred from the placements. And such instances will be informed to the respective company and the repercussions may be the offer can get withdrawn.

Blue Tag Job/Offer and Blue Tag FIF

There are companies that have a set management trainee programs, leadership roles across campuses or other roles with a prefixed compensation for all (may be with a range of two lakhs). They hire people with a relatively narrow range of experience (say 1 to 4 years) or as the job demands.

Companies, who are not in a position to negotiate the salary, post their jobs as Blue Tag jobs. The job is marked with a Blue Flag and the FIF in this case has a blue marking on the top right corner. In this case the part two of the FIF and client signature on part one are absent since the details of the offer are already known at the time of applying to the Blue Tag Job.

Offer Eligibility

 

Each student of the Class of 2019 will be entitled to a maximum of 2 offers or the acceptance of one job offer, whichever happens earlier.

 

Pre Placement Talks (PPTs) (August onwards)

Companies conduct Pre-Placement Talks to talk more about the roles within the organization, culture of the company, growth prospects, success stories and provide a chance to know the organization and the role from an insider’s perspective.

Representatives who visit campus for PPTs are often more senior than the people who will eventually visit to recruit. It is an important part of the campus hiring process.

 

Companies will typically post jobs some time before the Talk and then close applications a day or two after the Talk or post jobs after the PPT.

 

  • Time slots for PPT vary by day of the week

 

Monday to Thursday               – from 19:30 hrs to 20:30 hrs

– from 21:30 hrs to 23:00 hrs Friday, Saturday and Sunday      – from 09:00 hrs to 22:00 hrs

Note: Sometimes depending on the client requirement, PPT’s may happen at different timings.

 

It has been seen that companies tend to infer interest on a campus from the number of students who attended the PPT and the respect given to them by the attending set of students. Keeping this in mind a few policies have been put in place for PPTs

 

  • Students are required to be present in Smart business casuals or formal attire for PPTs. No slippers, shorts, spaghetti strap dresses, etc. are allowed for PPTs. Students not in the appropriate dress code will not be allowed to attend the PPT and consequently the rolling application counter will be decreased by 1.
  • Students cannot leave while the PPT is in progress.
  • CAC and concerned clubs will nominate two students each, who will be responsible to receive, conduct the event and formally send off the recruiter.
  • PPT attendance policy and PPT etiquettes as per CAC communication.

 

Pre Placement Offer (PPO) Policy

 

Students, who receive a pre placement offer (PPO) from the organisation where they have done their ELP (Experiential Learning Programme), competition, or any other process, will inform CAS and SEAL (Student Engagement and Applied Learning), within 24 hours of receipt of the same. 

 

  • This would be treated as ONE offer, under the CAS policy.

If the student accepts the offer, it would be treated as an “Accepted Offer” and immediately move out of placement process.

 

A detailed PPI/PPO policy is provided in the annexure 2.

Grade Disclosure Policy

  • Consistent with the School's Confidentiality policy, only the PGP office, will have access to student grades/CGPA. It is the student’s prerogative to divulge their grades/CGPA in the context of recruitment. It is important that:

 

  1. The student discloses the CGPA accurately by selecting the CGPA option in the Job apply page while uploading the Resume. Only in case if student wants his/her grades to appear on the CV.
  2. The automated option will pick only the latest available cumulative CGPA of the term announced by ASA department or as requested by the recruiter. Use this method ONLY to report your latest CGPA.
  3. DO NOT resort to manual reporting of your   manual   grades/function wise grades under any circumstance. Correct/ incorrect/ inaccurate reporting of grades is a serious offence and will attract strict penalties including, and not limited to getting debarred from campus placements.

 

 

CAS presentations/Open houses:

Periodically CAS & CAC will be regularly making presentations/open houses/through e- mails to share important information to students.

It is mandatory for all in-process students to attend the CAS presentations and make use of it. The students who are not part of placements or who are out of placements are not supposed to be part of these sessions. Else honor code may be implemented on them.

Any student using abusive language, loose talk or misbehavior with the CAS staff or CAS, the student will be referred to the honor code committee.

 

Resume Policy – Annexure -2

 

  • After more than 5 years of placements most recruiters are unbiased towards a particular campus. None the less, to be consistent with the one school philosophy, students should not provide any information in their resume which directly or indirectly indicates the campus (Hyderabad or Mohali) they are from. This includes information like address, location, landline number, email id, mobile number or any other information that is deemed to have been included only for indicating the home campus or contact details of the student. The decision of CAS is final in this regard
  • Incase students have to apply on Recruiter website and if the location/address is mandatory field, you can mention the same. But the resume/application which student upload on CAS Placement Portal and the recruiter websites where the fields are not mandatory, they should not mention details as indicated above.

Application (Expression of Interest [EoI] and Resume) Policy

           A student application is for a job description (JD)/Job posting (JP) and not for a company.

 

  • Job descriptions posted by companies will be identified as “Open” or “Blue Tag”. For the Blue Tag Job descriptions, elements of job description (Designation, Function, Location and total CTC (may be within a range of Two lakhs) – Fixed and Variable) are clearly indicated and hence are not negotiable. For Open Job descriptions, the recruiter would be willing to discuss the terms and conditions with the student during the interview process.

 

  • Students should upload their Application [ EOI (wherever applicable) + customised resume] in one PDF document for consideration to        job postings.
  • Students are accountable for all the information that s/he mentions in their application. Any misrepresentation of fact is a serious violation and will be taken up by the ISB Placement Honour Code Committee.

 

  • Students should submit Applications only for opportunities that they are serious about. Once a student submits an application, it will be taken as the intent of the student to join the company if an offer is made by the company (after all negotiations)

 

  • Students cannot apply directly to recruiters who have confirmed their participation in the placement process. Please speak with the respective CAS Corporate Relations Person for the company where the student is interested in pursuing separately.

 

  • For any matter that affects the placement process for the Class, students cannot contact the recruiters directly, which are in the CAS master list/DNT list forwarded to students from time to time or the companies registered on the CAS placement portal.

 

  • CAS will monitor the application counter of each student. The live application counter will differ for international and domestic company/jobs which are explained as under:

For International Recruitment:

 

  • The maximum number of rolling live international application counters for a student is 5.
  • Once a student signs the first FIF (2nd part of Final Interview Form or complete final round of Blue Tag job) the number of rolling application counters would be reduced to 3 which includes the application for which the FIF is signed

 

  • Once a student signs second FIF s/he would be out of international placements and would only be eligible to sit on Day 1 of Domestic.

 

  • Signing on the second part of the FIF or attending final round of the blue tag job by a student need not result to an offer.
  • After day1 once all the international and domestic offers are opened if the student is still in placement process, s/he can apply to International jobs, even if he had been out of International placements before day1, as per the 2 FIF policy (ie) if the student does not get any offer by end of Day 1, or get only 1 domestic offer and declines it. Any offer received after Day 1 will be opened and closed on the same day.

 

For Domestic Recruitment:

 

  • The maximum number of rolling live application counters for a student would be restricted as mentioned in the table below.

 

  • At the end of Day 1, or subsequently, any student who has 2 or more offers (includes international offers) or accepts 1 offer or rejects both offers, will be deemed to have moved out of the placement process.

Job wise or Company wise counters:

Every job at the time of posting is tagged as Job wise or company wise. Tagging of a job as job wise or company wise is decided by the company and not CAS.

 

Job wise means – every job of a company will consume one application counter.

Eg: if company A posts 2 jobs and tagged as jobwise, and if a student wishes to apply to both the jobs, 2 live counters are consumed

 

Company wise means – even if a student applies to multiple jobs of the same company, only one counter is consumed for that specific placement day.

Eg: if company B posts 2 jobs and tagged as company wise, and if a student wishes to apply to both the jobs, only 1 live counter is consumed

Note:

While most companies reimburse students for travelling to their office for interviews, some do not. While CAS always works to have the company reimburse this cost, a firm may decide that the cost of travel should be borne by the student. As a result, further negotiations pre and post travel would not be possible in such a case. CAS will not bare travel cost for interviews at client location.

 

Shortlist: For any placement day, a cap on shortlist (6) will be applicable. As soon as a student reaches a cap of 6 shortlist, s/he will not be allowed to apply any further.

Exchange students policy

 

 

Part of placement: The students who are travelling on international exchange should provide the CAS office with the following details.

 

Name of the School, University, Location, Time difference with respect to India, Skype ID, local Mobile no, VC details if any.

 

If shortlisted, the student has to attend the interview via skype, only if client agrees for the same. The interview schedule would be made as per the recruiter choice and student has to follow the same. Every effort will be made to accommodate for time differences but these situations tend to be fluid.

 

If agreed by the company the mode of interview can be Telephonic/Skype/VC as per the recruiter choice.

 

If the offer is made by the recruiter, the filled in FIF will be sent to the student and the same has to be printed, signed, scanned and send back the copy to the CAS office – cas@isb.edu

 

Students who have been placed : While a student may already been placed there may be some joining formalities or a need for the recruiter to be in touch. Therefore such students before leaving the campus for international exchange are to provide the following details to the CAS office.

 

Name of the School, University, Location, Time difference with respect to India, Skype ID, and local Mobile no. Please also check your ISB email address on a daily basis.

In such cases, the FIF being made by these companies will be opened and shown to the student. If s/he wants to keep the FIF, he needs to acknowledge the FIF by signing the second part within the time specified. This will become one offer if confirmed by the company. If student does not sign, it is considered that the student is not interested in getting the offer and the offer will be lapsed and can go to another student as per the recruiters decision. A final offer is made and announced to the students only at the end of the day 1 of placements (), and will be treated as one of the 02 offers a student can receive.

For any International Company that does not revert back with the result of the applications within 15 Days from the expected shortlist date or from last communication after the date of expected shortlist date, the live counter for that role will be opened for all students who have applied to that role.

Policy for Senior Students

 

As senior students may have to attend multiple rounds of interviews, CAS will process the profiles of students with 8 and above years of work experience before the normal placements. These students will move out of the placement process if they receive two offers or accept one.

 

Students with Niche/Specialised experience

 

Students who have very specialised pre ISB experience or those who would like to work in specialised areas are advised to meet with CAS early and discuss their specific requirements. This will enable CAS to target specific companies that such students are interested in.

 

Offer Acceptance Policy

 

  • Once the student has a total of 2 offers or accepts ONE offer, they are deemed to be out of the placement process. Even if a student rejects both of his/her offers, s/he will be deemed to have moved out of the placement process.
  • If a student receives the offer directly, s/he should inform CAS Office within 24 hours of receiving the offer.
  • Post offer clarifications on compensation or other issues are to be done directly between the student and the recruiter.
  • All students should get CAS clearance before the Graduation Day and submit their offer document, along with their joining date (even if it is tentative)

    • Have negotiated and finalized on the offer but did not sign later
    • In the first 2 situations, to make the student aware about the offer/recruiter intention, CAS will broadcast the FIF information online, student can decide whether to consider the offer or not.  Students can get more details about it from the CR. In situation 2, if student decides to negotiate the offer CR will facilitate connecting with the concerned. Once the terms proposed by the student is accepted by the recruiter, student looses the option to decline that offer.  It is deemed that student will accept this offer and declines other offers whichever he has received.

 

 

Offer details on the Exit

 

The student who has received an offer and accepted an offer has to share the copy of the offer letter along with joining date, for the School records. The offer can be through CAS or of an independent search. This has to be shared before the Exit from the Campus. The offer details thus shared will be kept confidential with the CAS Office.

Incase offer letter is received post - graduation, the same has to be shared with the CAS  Office as soon as the student receives it.

Resume Format and guidelines

 

 

GUIDELINES ON RESUME UPLOADED ON PORTAL TO APPLY JOBS

 

 

  • to be consistent with the one school philosophy, students should not provide any information in their resume which directly or indirectly indicates the campus (Hyderabad or Mohali) they are from. This includes information like address, location, landline number or any other information that is deemed to have been included only for indicating the home campus. The decision of CAS is final in this regard

 

  • Incase students have to apply on Recruiter website and if the location/address is mandatory field you can mention the same. But the resume/application which student upload on CAS Placement Portal and the recruiter websites where the fields are not mandatory, they should not mention details as indicated above.

 

  • The printing of CGPA in resume is automated upon selection by the student. The position designed for this is, right side top corner of the resume, hence this portion of the CV needs to be kept vacant/blank. Student name should be left aligned and the space against this on the right side will be used to print the CGPA.

 

1a. In case student want his grades to appear on his CV, there is an automated option in the job application page which will pick up student latest CGPA as is on the job application deadline, and auto-populate in the CV. Use this method ONLY to report the latest CGPA.

 

DO NOT resort to manual reporting of manual grades under any circumstance. Correct/ incorrect/ inaccurate reporting of grades is a serious offence and will attract strict penalties including, and not limited to getting debarred from campus placements.

 

The standard margins are fixed to display the CGPA in the right position on the resume, which are provided below: The Margins have to be followed for all the pages of the application (EOI+Resume) or if it includes any other document. Resume should be the last page of the application

 

Paper size: A4 Margins:

Top: 0.1"

Bottom: 0"

Left: 0.2"

Right: 0.2"

 

Header: 0.1"

 

Footer: 0.1"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Job application page accepts .PDF documents only.
  • Job application page accepts only 1 pdf document hence students have to merge all the information in to one pdf document and upload before the deadline.
  • Students should upload their Application [EOI (wherever applicable) + one pager customized resume ] in one PDF document for consideration to recruiter’s job postings. The resume should always be a one pager and it should be the last page of the PDF document as CGPA will be imported in the last page of PDF document uploaded on the portal.
  • Students are accountable for all the information that he/she mentions in their application. Any misrepresentation of fact is a serious violation and will be taken up by the ISB Placement Honor Code Committee.

 

  • Students should save their applications ((Resume + EOI) in one PDF file) by the First_Lastname_PGID while it on the Placement Portal.
