IIT Pre-Placement offers hit a record high this year so the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) is expecting High Number of Placement in this December. Pre-placement Offers (PPO’s) are increased up by 25-30%, compared to last year. This year massive companies have taken the PPO route for direct job recruitment, these are same companies that had only hired students as intern last year.

Several IIT-Roorkee candidates got PPOs offers from seasoned companies such as American Express India, Vodafone, Accenture Services, Visa and Capital One Financial Services. Barclays visited at IIT-Kanpur to offer PPOs to the candidates, but has not confirmed its participation in the placement season. HUL is another such company.
