The News: In Retrospection.

It’s a bit late this time around ...but I have a number of good news to share ... all are etched in everyone’s memory and can be recited without any hiatus... such was the charisma of events and so was our euphoria...

The IME party...the scintillating IME party ... conspicuous presence of all IME students, professors and their spouses mixed with flamboyant performance by students made it one of the memorable events in our premature IIT Kanpur life... It helped the students and the professors come closer. The excellent mimicry, poem citing and dialogue delivery by students left everyone mesmerized and took every professor back to their own student life (well, I guess so ;))... The party ended with few other-than-academic words by the professors.

The party was followed by small (sic!) Dussehra break which was first opportunity before us to head for home leaving all books and assignments locked in our hostel.

We came back and as if people knew that the break was not enough to re-energize us... so Antragini was organized ... Antragini as usual was at its top scale. The theme this time around was superhero. This four days long event changed the aura of IIT Kanpur... roads were made dance floor and thousands of people danced on the beats of DJ... A number of enthralling events ranging from rock show to fashion show kept us deprived of sleep... The icing on the cake was Sunidhi Chauhan’s performance which gave a perfect end to the event.

A party may end ... an event may wait for next year, but there is no dearth of parties here... we have celebrated many of our classmates’ birthday and the party is still on...


Last but not the least, our classmate Alok Jain, MBA 1st year, recently won Best speaker’s award at the Times of India Debate contest organized in Lucknow. Heartiest Congratulations to Alok.

Hope you too are living your life to the fullest and celebrating each small and big happiness.

Keep the party on!

See you soon !

RECRUPTION - TRUE DISRUPTION IN RECRUITMENT!


“I am convinced that nothing we do is more important than hiring and developing people. At the end of the day you bet on people, not on strategies.” - Lawrence Bossidy, GE
Human resource is an asset on which companies wager immensely. To talk on this prevailing topic, DIME at IIT Kanpur hosted Ms. Kiran Bhatia Tandon, Ex-Head, Talent Acquisition, Stryker. In her career, spanning over a decade, she has had experiences across diverse industries from Automobile to E-Commerce giving her a bird’s eye perspective of the industry. As charismatic as you get, Ms. Kiran, started off with asking us on the topics we wanted her to discuss upon, keeping the interaction open and filled with candour.
While discussing the difference, she experienced in Automobile and Ecommerce, she shared an anecdote which implied that it is always important for an HR Manager to understand the mind-set of an employee with a substantially larger earning potential than their own…

With the get-up-and-go attitude, the diversity of the 2018-2020 batch is one of a kind with studen…
