Shillong Polytechnic has been contributing tremendously as far as technical man power in the state is concerned. The Training and Placement Cell keeps track of the various job opportunities available for the students. Training is imparted on how to face interviews by conducting mock interviews. The Cell also invites Companies to conduct Campus Interviews for their recruitment requirements. Organizations including public and private sectors have been regularly inducting our students into their workforce. Various government organizations such as Doordarshan Kendra, MES, BSNL, AIR, MECL, PWD, PHE, Irrigation amongst others, have absorbed our students for technical services and continue to do so. Passed-out students are also employed in Private Sector companies such Star Cement, MCCL, TOPCEM, Lafarge and others and are keen to induct more of our students into their respective organizations as skilled technicians.
