Amazon Beats Flipkart In Campus Hiring!
Meanwhile, in the Indian ecommerce sector, we are witnessing some major changes in the campus hiring trends.
Amazon India has emerged as the top recruiter this time, comprehensively beating Flipkart by a fair and large margin.
As per reports coming in, Amazon is visiting around 50 engineering campuses, and 40 management institutes, as the overall hiring has been pumped up by 25%, compared to last year.
At the same time, Flipkart has decided not to visit any IITs and IIMs this year, thereby showcasing a major shift in priorities. Earlier, at IIM-Bangalore’s summer placement, Amazon had offered 27 offers, while Flipkart only offered 5 jobs.
If we compare the salary offered at BITS Pilani campus, then the difference is clearly visible: While Amazon offered Rs 27.8 lakh package, Flipkart offered Rs 23.8 lakh package.
The same story is seen elsewhere as well.
AK Bakthavatsalam, head of training and placement at the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli said’,
“Flipkart did not visit this year. Amazon has been a regular visitor at NITT. This year, it made 11 offers, compared with nine offers last year,”
Just two years back, Flipkart used to be the leading recruiter from campus, having 200-300 job offers ready. But last year, they promised jobs, and then backed out at the last moment, which has created some confusion this year as students from premier colleges are apprehensive about Flipkart.
