St Xavier’s College (Autonomous) Kolkata

From the Principal
St. Xavier's College (Autonomous), Kolkata has always strived to meet the challenges of enriching, encouraging and developing human capital for the betterment of the society. It is no exaggeration to state that the all round formation offered at our institute has made our students valuable in the job market. Many companies have shown their preference for Xaverians. The various departments at St. Xavier's College (Autonomous) enjoy a preeminent reputation for the excellence of its teaching in this dynamic discipline. It ranks alongside the most highly-rated undergraduate colleges of this country. From a very humble beginning in 1860, the college is now catering to more than 5000 students. Our academic program is of the highest calibre because we believe in the transformative power of ideas. Our faculty and diverse student body from various social walks of life, all contribute towards the same purpose: to maintain the college’s excellent reputation in education and to form men and women for others. Ever since St. Xavier's College, Kolkata became Autonomous three years ago, its curriculum aims to extract the best out of every individual who is a part of this esteemed institution. The Semester system, Continuous Internal Assessments as well as the Credit system ensure that every Xaverian is competent enough to face challenges in life. To facilitate the recruitment process for companies, the St. Xavier's College Placement Cell was formally inaugurated four years ago. In 2004-05 more than 80 companies took assistance from the Placement Cell for Campus Recruitment. We value all the companies that come to recruit from our College and hope to establish a long lasting mutually beneficial association with all. I hasten to add that the best time, considering the convenience of the outgoing students and of the college, is from the 1st to the 23rd of September. Assuring you of our best services and thanking you in anticipation,

Rev. Dr J. Felix Raj, SJ.

About the College
One hundred and fifty years after its humble beginning on January 16, 1860 with a first strength of 40 students, today, St. Xavier's, Kolkata has grown into a leading educational institution in India. What began as a tiny seed grew into a mighty tree sheltering more than 5000 students every year in its various departments. A total teaching staff of over 200 is educating them. The college offers UG and PG courses under five faculties: Arts, Science, Commerce, Business Administration, and Education. The College’s motto is Nihil Ultra; significant and suggestive of a noble ideal, of an unconquerable hope, that should urge the Xaverian always to aim high. The motto of the young Xaverian is the old maxim: ‘Perfectum nihilest, aliquid dum restat agentum’ (Nothing is perfect as long as anything remains to be done). St. Xavier’s is run by the Society of Jesus, a Christian Religious Order, founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. It is one of the 24 University Colleges run by the Jesuits in India. The Jesuit College aims at forming young men and women of competence, commitment, compassion and conscience. St. Xavier’s College thus aims at making its own contribution towards a transformation of the present-day social condition so that the principles of social justice, equality of opportunity, genuine freedom and respect for religious and moral values, enshrined in the Constitution of India, may prevail, and the possibility of living a fully human existence may be open before all. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) recognized St. Xavier’s College as an “A” grade institution in 2003. In May 2006, it was declared a Centre with Potential for Excellence by the UGC. From July 2006, it became an autonomous college (the first in West Bengal). The implication of the autonomous college is that it is free to frame its own curriculum and courses of studies and at the same time it adopts innovative methods of teaching and undertakes a continuous process of performance evaluation through examinations. St. Xavier’s has always been known for its cosmopolitan and allIndia character. Coming as they do from all over India and from various communities, they live in complete harmony, understanding and mutual respect. Thus they are encouraged to develop beyond local and group affinities, loyalties to the country and to society at large. St. Xavier’s, which became the home of learned professors and zealous students, has all these 150 years remained steadfast and persevered in the midst of troubles and anxieties. Now with the richness of the past, it faces the future with the same spirit – “Nihil Ultra” (Nothing beyond).

Placement Cell
The Placement Cell of St. Xavier’s College acts as an integral link between the students and corporate organisations. St. Xavier’s College is one of the first colleges to start a Placement Cell and has facilitated placements for many students. The placement cell functions under the supervision of Mr. Aniruddha Sinha assisted by students and operates all around the year to arrange campus interviews by the companies. The Cell acts as a contact point for all companies that wish to select students from St. Xavier’s College. It facilitates the whole process from collecting the CVs of the students to organising Pre-placement talks by companies to the final induction process.

Placement Policy
Rules and Regulations
• The Placement Cell only acts as a platform for interaction between students and the corporate & does not assure any student of a placement. • Students must apply to a corporate after careful consideration. Strict action will be taken against students who negatively impact the reputation of the College by their action or inaction while interacting with the corporate especially during the recruitment process. • All companies will conduct a pre-placement talk. • The Placement Cell is not responsible for the profile of job offered by the corporate. It is the duty of the student to clarify the same with the corporate. • Students are advised to attend the PPT for information about the company profile, job description and the package. • Companies will visit us between the 1st and the 23rd of September.

Placement Policy
• The Placement Cell of the College will categorise the companies that come for recruitment into 3 categories (A, B, C). The category of a particular company will be informed to the students ahead of the company’s arrival to the campus. • If a student after the recruitment process is placed in a particular company (for eg. Company C1), he or she would not be allowed to apply to another company in the same category (for eg. Company C2). However, there will be an option for a ‘Dream Company’. This means that the student can select or apply in any company in the other two categories (categories A or B). • If a student is placed in any company of category B (for eg. Company B1), he or she would not be allowed to apply to any other company of category B (for eg. Company B2) nor to any company in category C (for eg. Company C1). However, he/she can apply to any company of category A. • If a student is placed in any company in category A, he/she will exhaust all further placement opportunities. • If a student’s name is enlisted in the Waiting List of a particular company, it will not be considered as a placement and he/she will be allowed to apply in other companies. • If there is a time gap between the recruitment process and the declaration of the results by a particular company (say Company B1), the student will be allowed to apply to another company (say Company B2) during this period. But in case he/she is selected in Company B1 as well as Company B2, he/she will not be allowed to apply further( except for Category A Companies).
