Mentoring refers to a personal developmental relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. It is a process for sharing knowledge relevant to work, career, or professional development. At BIBS we pay attention to the core competencies of our students, hence, for the enhancements of skills which will gear them up to face the Corporate World, we run them through a series of Mentoring Sessions.
Corporate Mentoring

We recognize that the best teachers to provide guidance and expertise are corporate mentors; community business leaders who are willing to guide and advise students. The goal of the program is to foster a successful mentoring relationship between MBA students and corporate executives, giving students the opportunity to:

Gain exposure to the business community
Learn about and discuss specific career paths
Develop and cultivate a business network
Understand the relevance of their academic studies
See what tasks and issues executives face
Discuss attributes and experiences companies are truly looking for in potential candidates.

Placement Mentoring

Keeping in mind the ever increasing competition and market demand, we understand students need extensive training to handle the rigors of the placement process. Therefore, at BIBS we have developed a Placement Training Cell.

The training offers support on areas including:

Deciding how to choose the right placement
Practical tips on job applications and interview techniques
The sessions include:

Aptitude Training:

As an integral part of the placement process, companies conduct aptitude tests to check the logical and analytical ability of students. Sessions covering various areas like, English Language Skills, Mathematical Ability, Logical Reasoning, Psychometric Test and General Knowledge are conducted followed by Mock Tests which ensures students are well equipped with the requisite know-how to crack these tests.
Personal Interview (PI):

At BIBS Personal Interview Skills, which takes a student a long way in his career is harnessed and developed by one-on-one interaction. Personal Interview which can be a very daunting and stressful task, is soon transferred in to an interactive session. This helps our students to overcome barriers in communication, and increases their self-confidence. FAQs of interviews of different companies for different specializations is discussed.
Group Discussion (GD):

A GD is a methodology used by an organization to gauge whether the candidate has certain personality traits and / or skills that it desires in its members. It is used as one of the best tools to select the prospective candidates in a comparative perspective. GD may be used by an interviewer at an organization, colleges or even at different types of management competitions. At BIBS, we conduct an extensive training on GD and evaluate the students through an event called Passport, where the students are evaluated on the following personality traits:

Communication skills
Interpersonal Skills
Leadership Skills
Motivational Skills
Team Building Skills
Different Thinking
Analytical/Logical Skills Reasoning ability
Ability to think on ones feet

There are practice sessions that cover a wide range of topics, so that the students can handle any subject with ease. They also develop the ability to handle stress and think-out-of-the box.
Mentoring for Summer Placements (SIP):

SIP aims at widening the student's perspective by providing an exposure to real life organization and environmental situations. This will enable the students to explore an industry/organist ion, build a relationship with a prospective employer, or simply hone their skills in a familiar field. SIP also provides invaluable knowledge and networking experience to the students. During the internship, the student has the chance to put whatever he/she learned in the 1st year of MBA into practice while working on a business plan or trying out a new industry, job function or organization. The Goals for Holding the SIP Mentoring:

*To provide students with an idea of how to conduct research by creating effective questionnaires

*To enhance student understanding of how data can be used to understanding market sentiments and consumer decision-making policy
Curriculum-Vitae Writing:

Curriculum Vitae: an outline of a person's educational and professional history, usually prepared for job applications. Another name for a CV is a résumé. A CV is the most flexible and convenient way to make applications. It conveys one' personal details in the way that presents the candidate in the best possible light. A CV is a marketing document in which a candidate is marketing something: The Candidate Himself! The candidate need to "sell" his skills, abilities, qualifications and experience to employers. It can be used to make multiple applications to employers in a specific career area. For this reason, many large graduate recruiters will not accept CVs and instead use their own application form. So here at BIBS, we have meticulous screening of CVs, where, all possible errors are rectified and it is ensured that it is presented in a well-structured format.
