The following candidates were reviewed, screened, shortlisted and selected by the current IEOM Panel 5.0. It was a step-by-step recruitment process:
70+ people registered online. Among them top 30 were selected based on their answers. Later on, an aptitude test was conducted, and finally after the final interview that took place “13” made the list. The “13” were coined as “Proteges”.
Now, the very first session was conducted by our very own Assistant Professor, Mr. Rezaul Karim Nayeem on “Email & CV Writing”. The session was very interactive. Both the Protege and a group of panel members learned a lot from that day. He advised that all must prepare a CV and have a LinkedIn profile as well.
