Most of them were snatched right from the campus gates with luring salaries. The story was not too different this year, as the average salaries shot up by 15-20 percent along with top salaries. But in a recent trend that put the companies into dilemma, many of these fresh recruits tend to move to other jobs, leaving the firm just a few months after joining.
