Placement Rules and Categories

This page helps us understand how to define the placement categories.

Placement Rules

The placement rules are governed by three general factors

  • Number of offers student can obtain in a placement cycle

  • Number of attempts to obtain the first offer

  • Number of attempts to obtain the second offer

Levels and Categories

Each job profile can be assigned to a category which in turn belongs to a level. There can be several levels in a placement cycle and each level can have multiple categories

Level

Every placement cycle must have a minimum of one level

Level 1 is always considered as the top level and all the top paying jobs usually come under this level. These levels cannot be rearranged

The levels will always follow an ascending order of numbering. To add a level click on the Add new level button

Example : Level 1 can be a top recruiter with core jobs offering the best salaries. Level 2 maybe offering slightly less but willing to recruit at least 10-12 students. Level 3 can be a mass recruiter who is offering average pay but maximum number of positions.

If one student gets a job offer at Level 1 then he/she will no longer be eligible to receive offers in Level 2 and Level 3

Maximum offers and number of attempts can be defined for every level

Once a New level has been created we can implement some rules that govern the job profiles and job applications that are a part of this level using the following factors

  • Maximum number of offers in the level

  • Maximum number of attempts to obtain the first offer

  • Maximum number of attempts to obtain an additional offer

  • CTC based rule

CTC Based Rule

The CTC based rule can be applied when you would like to categorize the jobs and the job applications based on the compensation given by the company

The CTC comparative can be of two types

  • Difference

  • Multiplier

Difference : When this rule is applied the student will be able to apply to a job in the present Level if the previously obtained CTC in the level below is greater than the value entered

Example : In the above scenario, the CTC comparator type has been mentioned as difference, the value is 3,00,000 and the currency as INR. Hence the student will be able to apply if the CTC of the job profile currently offered is 3,00,000 or more than the previously offered value

Multiplier : When this rule is applied the student will be able to apply to a job in the present Level if the previously obtained CTC in the level below is greater than the multiple of the value entered in the CTC comparator

Example : In the above scenario, the CTC comparator type is set to multiple, the value has been mentioned as 2 and the currency as INR. Hence the student will be able to apply only if the CTC of the job profile currently offered is two times the previously offered value

Categories

Every level can have different categories of job present in them.

Categories can be used to apply any conditions for job profiles that fall under the same level

Example : Level 1 can have two kinds of jobs. Category A / Category B. Whereas the student is allowed to be placed in just 1 of them.

Usage of categories

In the above image. As per the previous example, there are two categories created in level 1. The maximum offers in level 1 is 1 but the job could be either in category A or category B

Each category can be governed by it's own set of rules. They are Number Of Offers, Attempts and CTC. All of which have been explained above in the article
