The Career Counselling and the Placement Cell of the Taki Government College had been established with the aim of providing the students a sense of direction and exposure to the different job opportunities available in the market. One of the primary purposes of the establishment of this Cell was to invite the corporate sector, training Institutions etc. to place mainly the outgoing students of this college who are seeking jobs. Keeping this in view the Career Counselling and the Placement Cell of Taki Government College had organised a Campus drive in collaboration with the BMA Wealth Creators Ltd. in order to provide placements to the students.

The Career Counselling and Placement Cell, Taki Government college with the prior approval of the Head of the Institution (the –then Officer –in-Charge) had invited the BMA Wealth Creators Ltd. to conduct a Campus Interview at Taki Government College .The Campus Interview was organised on December 16th, 2016.Two officials from BMA Wealth Creators ( Mr.J.Dhabaldeb and Ms. R.Das) were present to take the interview. There were two rounds of interview. The first round had taken place in Taki Government College campus.
About 63 candidates (college students) from both Science and Humanities departments have participated in the campus interview, out of which 9 candidates were selected in the First Round. For the Second Round of interview about 16 candidates were short listed. However, the rest of the candidates (around 38) were rejected. The performance of the Selected and the Short listed candidates were very good (as received from the feedback of the recruiters). These 25 candidates were called for the Second round of interview with their credentials in their main office. Although some of the selected and short listed candidates were present in the Second Round of interview and all were selected and asked to join immediately but unfortunately, they were not interested to join the job then. The possible reasons cited by them for not joining the job were that most of them were 2nd year students and their Part II Examination were approaching and they needed time to prepare for that, some of them said they were not very comfortable to stay at Kolkata which is quite far off from their place etc. It was very unfortunate that the selected students did not join the job but the initial response from them was very positive. They have given a positive feedback to such an endeavour of the Career Counselling and Placement Cell and have requested the Cell to undertake such endeavours again.
The Career Counselling and the Placement Cell of this Institution also encourages the students of both Post Graduate (PG) and Under Graduate (UG) departments to apply for different Government jobs and has conducted some in- house workshops on Communications and Personality development to inspire them and apprise them about the ways of CV Writing ,techniques of an interview etc. This has immensely motivated the students to sit for government jobs and some of them have been successful in securing different types of government jobs mainly in colleges and schools as Assistant Professors , Primary teachers etc in the last five years. These candidates have voluntarily informed the Institution and the Career Counselling and the Placement Cell about their success in these government jobs.
