TCS Raised Hiring Target To 75,000 Employees This Fiscal


Chandigarh University (CU) uncovers good news for its Computer Science and Information Technology students as India's largest software firm, TCS has recently increased its hiring target to 75,000 from 60,000 for this fiscal due to its promising demand in the software industry. According to the company, the attrition rate has stabilized at 16.2% during the second quarter as compared to the previous quarter, consequently raising the need to bring it down in the later quarters of the fiscal.



Executive vice president and global head Ajoy Mukherjee said, "We have revised upwards our hiring target due to the strong growth witnessed in the first half of the year. Accordingly, we will be hiring 75,000 this fiscal as against 60,000 as planned earlier." Such attrition in the domestic market is unbearable and the company has witnessed a remarkable decline on a month-on-month basis.

In order to bring-in satisfactory conditions, the company has earlier raised its hiring target by 10,000, resulting in desired improvement. The total revenue generated by the firm this quarter stands at Rs 27,165.50 Crore and revenue from a Digital Service segment also hiked by 13%-- said MD & CEO N Chandrasekaran.

Illustrating the employment as a wide phenomenon, Mukherjee said, "everyone who leaves ... people that we have in IT, it includes BPO, it includes people who have been hired for a project and once the project is over then they leave, all that is counter as attrition."

TIPS FOR CRACKING THE INTERVIEW

Interview day is the D- Day when one needs to put forward their best. It can get unnerving at times but you should prepare yourself to handle every situation and question very smartly. Here are few tips for you to crack your interview in the first go.


READ ABOUT THE COMPANIES YOU ARE INTERVIEWING WITH 

A thorough or reasonable knowledge about the concerned company would be always beneficial as then you can customize your answers according to the company’s working style.

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION SKILLS 

Develop your verbal communications skills. Having great management or technical skills and a strong record of accomplishment is not helpful if you can't verbally convey you successes.

MARKET YOURSELF

Remember, the job interview is a platform to market yourself. It is a strategic conversation with a
purpose. Your goal is to persuade the employer that you have the skills, background and ability to do the job and that you can comfortably fit into the organization and its culture.

BE CONFIDENT 

Look confident but not appear brash. Most people no matter how good they are sometimes just cannot handle themselves during their interviews. Just try to relax. Work on your communication skills from now itself. Learn to answer as succinctly as possible. If you are nervous do a few mock interviews with your friends.

ASK QUESTIONS 

This is one of the most important parts of an interview. A company will tell you what's in it for you, but you've got to read between the lines and ask honest questions. You don't want to be unpleasantly
surprised once you join, and in case you have questions about your designation, profile, responsibilities, salary, etc., it's time to shoot those questions now.

Accenture plans to hire 1,00,000 in FY16

Acenture plans to hire about 1,00,000 people in FY16 and spend as much as $1 billion on acquisitions, as it invests in new technologies at a scale that far outstrips its Indian rivals. At its investor conference in New York on Wednesday, Accenture outlined its strategy for its financial year ending August 2016.


"Last year we hired roughly 1,00,000 people. Though the number isn't set for this year, we expect to hire roughly in the same range," David Rowland, chief financial officer at Accenture, told investors and analysts.

At that pace, Accenture will remain the second-biggest employer in the IT industry. Tata Consultancy Services had overtaken the company in headcount in 2013, a title Accenture has since taken back.

TCS' hiring, the most aggressive among Indian IT firms, will be around 65,000 in FY16, falling far short of Accenture's recruitment. TCS' financial year ends in March.
Accenture is also beating its Indian IT rivals in the amount of money it is deploying for acquisitions. Rowland said the company which spent about $850 million on acquisitions in FY15, had estimated it would spend between $900 million and $1 billion on acquisitions in FY16.


Accenture also said it would focus its business on three 'new technologies' -- digital, cloud and cyber security, which together contribute $10 billion to its top line or a third of its overall revenue.
