Wipro to hire experienced professionals
Bangalore: With an increase in business, IT services firm Wipro is holding recruitment drives to recruit experienced IT professionals (termed lateral hiring) across India. The company said in a statement that it plans to organize two-day walk-in interviews for experienced IT professionals in Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Noida and Kolkata, starting November 14. The drive is a part of regular hiring, in line with business demands, the company said. Vice-President (Talent Acquisition) Pradeep Bahirwani said that the company would hold recruitments simultaneously across the country to provide applicants a quick process to allow them to consider opportunities in other cities. "We are looking to meet applicants across skill requirements in all business divisions with experience levels ranging from 2-14 years," he said. Bahirwani added the company had released recruitment advertisements to inform applicants of the drive. "We encourage applicants to apply directly to us and not fall prey to fraudsters misusing company names and duping candidates," Bahirwani said. Wipro has also announced plans to hire BSc, BCM and BCA students graduating in 2010 for its Wipro Academy of Software Excellence.
