There was once a time when students used to look into various criteria while applying for admission. However, now, campus placement is the top factor that both parents and students look at while choosing a college for higher education. Colleges are, therefore, vying with each other to have tie-ups with companies and organisations for placement. The catch here is that just having a tie-up will not guarantee 100% placement of all the final year students. There has to be an effective training program to equip students with the right skill sets and aptitudes that will make them employable and help them get placed in the leading companies in the industry. Educational institutes will greatly benefit from investing in a system that will help them create a talent pool of skilled candidates.

MeritTrac offers a suite of assessment platforms and solutions that can help educational institutes train students for placement. Rigorous training with the right technological solutions offered by MeritTrac can help you prepare your students for online screening tests, personal interviews and group discussions.

Build a Pre-Assessed Talent Pool to Improve Your Institute’s Placement

HR and Recruitment teams that come to your institute for hiring evaluate a student’s employability and industry-relevant skills. Apart from domain-specific skills, they will also look at a candidate’s cognitive, behavioural and personality skills. The aptitude skills will also be evaluated in relation to the job profile for which the hiring is being done. So, if you want your college students to be placed in the top companies, you need to train them to become employable. MeritTrac’s assessment solutions help bridge the gap between talent availability in the educational institutes and the talent requirement in the organisations.

One of the biggest challenges that companies face is the lack of skilled talent for the job profiles. Academic institutes need to identify the gap here and use the right training methods to equip students with skills that will make them employable. Our assessment solutions are backed by scientific methods and help evaluate a student’s knowledge and expertise in the domain.

Your placement team can use MeritTrac’s assessment tests for personality, behavioural, and cognitive skills to evaluate a students’ skills and capabilities. The placement team can then analyse the results obtained from the tests and use the analytics to build a talent pool based on the skill sets and aptitudes. So, when you have placement drives from companies, you can recommend students with skill sets matching the requirement for the job profile. This way, you can ensure that the placement drive is successful.

Apart from helping the placement team build talent pools, MeritTrac assessment solutions also help assess learning gaps. The areas of improvement can be identified based on the results of the assessment tests, and students can be given the right training to bridge the gap.
