Placement cell serves as a prominent medium of bridging the journey of students from academics to economically independent citizens of the country. ICP attempts relevant, high quality placements through building young competent pharmacy professionals. We actively connect with the Pharmaceutical industries and encourage companies to recruit our students. The pre-placement sessions are specially arranged where the students are given sessions for grooming, soft skill development and communication which adds to the flair, facilitating the recruitment process.
The placement team endeavors to provide assistance to all genuinely interested & eligible students towards beginning their careers with organizations of repute. On and off-campus recruitments are regularly conducted depending upon the nature and requirements posted by various companies and the availability of the enrolled students. A single-offer-letter-per-student policy is very strictly followed which means that once a student is selected by a company he/she is not allowed to appear for any other company interviews scheduled through the college. The college conducts pre-placement sessions as well as knowledge sharing sessions to ensure better preparedness for the students.
The placement activity at Indira College of Pharmacy is coordinated by Mr. Dayanand Kannur, In-Charge Placement Cell.

Career Guidance Cell
A lot of counseling and guidance is provided to the students prior to allowing them to appear for the interviews. Outmost importance is given to make them aware of the factors resulting in the success or failure in the professional career. Their liking to a particular branch, subject knowledge, their individual strengths & areas of improvements are taken into consideration before suggesting to them a suitable job profile. Likewise, equal amount of time is spent with the company representatives in understanding their job profiles and requisite skills/competencies desired from the students. Special sessions are conducted to apprise the students regarding offshore opportunities so as to groom them for education overseas for higher studies.
