It is the duty of college faculty and mentors to give students the sort of guidance which makes them ready to take on the challenges of professional world.
This training, coupled with good placement, is what every student aims for while joining any college. Not having to run around looking for job is a hard-earned luxury which colleges attempt to give to their students.

GLA has an active Training and Placement cell which constantly works towards ensuring employment for students by organizing workshops where they are taught how to be an effective team player and other basic requirements of being a professional.
Led by experienced professors, the GLA T&P Cell introduces students to the concepts of corporate culture and acts as the bridge between them and the industry so that demands and expectations of both are fulfilled. It helps polish the skills of students while helping the employers to find the perfect candidate with technical and managerial skills.
