Assistants Under Training, commonly known as AUTs are students of premier engineering and management institutes who choose to pursue their careers with ITC, straight after they graduate from their institution. AUTs are inducted into the ITC system with the objective of nurturing and grooming them to be the leaders of tomorrow. From the day an AUT joins ITC, the Company ensures that necessary inputs are provided in terms of managerial development, cross functional and cross business exposure and indepth functional exposure in order to develop domain expertise, to equip them with the knowledge and skills required to perform their roles, as well as to lay the foundation for their growth and development as business leaders. AUTs undergo training for a period of one year after which they are confirmed as Assistant Managers.
AUTs, after they join ITC, are taken through a one-week corporate induction programme wherein various Business Heads introduce them to their businesses. The induction programme is also aimed at facilitating a smooth transition from campus to the corporate world as well as to provide an opportunity to interact with business leaders. On the whole the programme aims at giving an AUT an understanding of what defines ITC, how ITC works and the lives ITC touches!!!
Once AUTs join their respective businesses, they go through a division and function specific detailed induction programme which provides them a thorough overview of the business model of the division, introduces them to various functions within the business and gives them an extensively detailed insight into their own function. The induction programme is supported by projects and stints which help grasp the various nuances of the business and at the same time contribute to the growth of the Company.

AUT Selection Process
Step I: Application Screening
Interested students from premier campuses are invited to apply online. An ideal candidate aspiring to pursue a career with ITC must possess the right mix of academic achievements and co-curricular excellence. We look for students who are able to think creatively, work in teams, convert adversities into opportunities and lead through ambiguous situations. Candidates must have demonstrated leadership across various spheres of student life. As our operations are spread across cities and rural settings we prefer candidates who are open to the idea of working in locations which could be remote and culturally distinct from their own.
Step II: Online Assessment
The students shortlisted through the application screening are invited to participate in an online assessment. The assessment is non-technical and non-aptitude in nature.
Step III: Group Activity:
Candidates shortlisted through the online assessment are invited to participate in a group activity. This activity provides us insights into the candidate's ability to lead, influence, communicate and work as a member of a team to achieve the desired results, all essential for a successful manager and emerging leader.
Step IV: Personal Interaction
Candidates selected through the group activity are invited to a personal interaction with some of ITC's senior managers. This provides us the opportunity to understand the candidate's depth of function knowledge, general awareness and the overall fit with our core values, besides gaining a better understanding of the candidate's background and attributes such as leadership, teamwork and the ability to succeed.
Each step presents us a unique opportunity to get to know you better, and we look forward to seeing you in your campus!!
