Batch: 2018-20

CIR plays a crucial role in any placement process. For any student to crack an interview, Motivation and Perseverance is key and the CIR Department of ASB Bangalore has driven us through the interview process with abundance of the same. Their seamless process of Mock Interviews and Group Discussions has given us an edge over others. One important aspect that they have taught us is: “How to accept failure, not give up and rebound with the same motivation in further interviews.” I would love to extend my gratitude to the CIR Department for supporting me throughout the 3-day interview process and for keeping my confidence and morale high.

In Amrita, Bengaluru CIR has always been a pillar of support and guidance. For all the companies proper guidance was provided with the help of alumni to crack the interviews and get placed. CIR provided the best assistance for all the rounds in the interview processes to ensure all the efficient candidates are placed in their deserving companies. One of the approaches of CIR that I admired was they had provided new and a variety of opportunities to the MBA students. Their positivity, motivation and support had always helped us students to never lose hope and to give any interview our best shot.
