“Samcara’s Career workshop for the 91 PGP students called for the two-week preparatory program in summer 2018 was impactful, as 91% of the students covered chose summer internship areas suited to their psychometric profiling. Further, one-in-five students secured coveted pre-placement offers, and all students eligible were placed within day zero and day one in their final placements in 2020.”
-Prof Ganesh N. Prabhu, CDS Chair (2015-2019), IIM Bangalore
