91,000 Freshers Will Be Hired By TCS, Infosys, HCL, Wipro In Next 12 Months; These Skills In Demand!
Here is a great news for job seekers – the top four IT service providers of India are looking to hire as many as 91000 candidates for the next financial year.
Apparently, the demand for hiring has increased as the rules of the lockdown are slowly loosening.
TCS, Infosys, HCL Technologies, and Wipro To Hire 91000 Candidates
TCS, Infosys, HCL Technologies, and Wipro will be hiring 91000 people from campuses by the financial year 2022, as the demand has now increased after the lockdown is now ending.
TCS executive VP and global HR head Milind Lakkad has said in a recent media interaction that the same number of freshers will be hired for the next year by the company as it did this year, and the number was about 40,000.
Infosys has also announced that it will hire about 24,000 college graduates in India in the next financial year. This number has increased from the 15,000 that was planned for the current financial year.
Apparao V V, the chief HR officer of HCL Technologies has said that there are several reasons behind the increased momentum of hiring.
He said, “We are doing 33% more than what we had targeted and we see a fair bit of acceleration in Q3 and Q4. The visa environment, compensation revisions and countries looking inward have put a cap in terms of the talent available in those countries.”
He also said that if customers increase their engagement, they will have to go where the skills are. He stated that 70% of the increase in the manpower was in India and 30% is outside of India as of last year. However, this year, it was almost 90 – 100%. He said that there are “huge ramp-ups” in India.
Increased Demand For Candidates Related To Infrastructure
HCL is also planning to hire about 15,000 freshers in India and 1,500-2,000 people on-site in the fiscal year that will end on March 31, 2022.
Whereas, Wipro’s chief HR officer Saurabh Govil has stated that a talent war will be taking place in the IT sector as companies have increased their hiring in the last two quarters. He said, “It is all about the demand. The way we have been hiring in the last few months…more demand means more opportunities.”
As per reports, the demand for candidates is generally related to infrastructure as this is the section where there are big deals, as per James Friedman of Susquehanna Financial Group (SFG).
