Country’s second largest IT services firm Infosys says it will go to college campuses for hiring of freshers despite demand disruption due to Covid-19.
Though the company did not reveal the number of freshers it will offer jobs this year, it is likely to be around the same of last financial year. The Bengaluru-headquartered IT firm had sent letters to 18,000 freshers last year.
“We will soon talk to colleges for freshers who will join next year. We have to talk to them when they will be ready (for the campus programme) and there will be newer processes like remote (onboarding),” said Krish Shankar, executive vice-president and the group head of human resource development at Infosys.
“We have onboarded most of the lateral hires to whom we have given offers remotely. On onboarding of freshers from campus (who were given job offers last year), we will honour all those offers and make the announcement in due course,” he said.
