The job of an information technology (IT) professional comes with a lot of shine and gloss. It promises all that a young person can desire — high salary offers, the promise of work in America or Europe, social prestige and, of course, a premium in the marriage market. In short, it’s been a dream job. And dreamers are the easiest prey to fraudsters.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India’s biggest tech company, yesterday sacked at least four executives for allegedly giving preferential treatment to certain staffing firms in recruiting contractual employees, ET has reported.
While full details of the TCS job scam have yet to come out, it has again underlined another kind of job scam the IT sector is rife with: job seekers are promised IT jobs, charged a lot of money, and are left holding fake job offers.
