What is Infosys:
Infosys is one of the largest IT companies in India with 105,453 professionals working in over 50 offices and development centers in India, China, Australia, the Czech Republic, Poland, the UK, Canada and Japan.
How good is Infosys as an organisation can be judged from the fact that it is being voted the 'Most Admired Indian Company' in The Wall Street Journal Asia 200 for 10 years in a row since 2000.
If the above statistics on Infosys has impressed you, naturally you would like to know how tough is to get a job in Infosys – well it is tough - in 2007, Infosys received over 1.3 million applications and hired fewer than 3% of applicants.
Infosys Freshers Recruitment process:
There are two ways in which a fresher can apply for an Infosys job:
1.0 Campus Recruitment.
2.0 Off-Campus Recruitment.
Infosys Campus Recruitment:
Infosys relies heavily on campus recruitment for its intake of freshers. It does this by maintaining a close relation with institutes of repute through its various programs like Campus Connect
(the academia-industry initiative to “align college curriculum with the industry’s requirements”), Instep
(the Global Internship Program) as well as its normal campus hiring programs.
Infosys campus recruitment for freshers in engineering institutes takes place from May to September while in management institutes campus recruitment takes place from December to March.
If your institute already has a tie-up with Infosys for campus recruitment, than get in touch with your placement coordinator to know when Infosys is coming for the next campus recruitment.
On the other hand, if Infosys has never visited your college for campus recruitment but you think that the college/student standard can impress Infosys HR to consider for campus recruitment than get in touch with Infosys at mail-id firstname.lastname@example.org.
