MUMBAI: India’s largest software company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Tuesday said the job scenario is strong and the company is planning to hire as many as 45,000 freshers next fiscal.
We do not have a guideline for overall hiring yet for FY13. However, we have already given offers to 35,000 freshers in over 200 campuses across the country. We are planning to make another 10,000 offers in the future,” TCS Executive Vice-President & Global Head for Human Resources Ajoyendra Mukherjee told reporters here.
During the current fiscal so far, TCS has hired 37,000 freshers and trainees, who started joining the company from the beginning of the July-September quarter, he said, adding “the bulk of the freshers usually join during Q2 and Q3.
The salary of the campus recruits for FY13 will remain same as this fiscal, he further said. Talking about the total hiring during this fiscal, he said, the company is on course to meet its target of 60,000. The total employee strength of the company stood at 2,14,770 at the end of the September quarter.
On the fake job scam, Mukherjee said, TCS is taking steps at all possible levels to create awareness amongst career aspirants. “We have posted a detailed note on job sites apart from our own website. We also create awareness through announcements in national and regional media and have a toll free service line for assistance,” he said.
