IT companies are eager to hire senior professionals such as experienced sales leaders, project heads and delivery and architecture experts. However IT companies are used to hire engineering graduates as they prepared for faster growth. With effect of automation and new technologies it is imperative to strengthen their business by hiring the senior leaders.
Meanwhile some companies are lateral hires in client management, onsite and in delivery.

That is how the new ideas will come in.
