Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India’s leading IT services company, has commenced fresher hiring for the fiscal year 2024-25, signaling a positive shift in the IT job market. 

In a move that brings relief to engineering graduates amidst a freeze in recruitment by several IT firms, TCS has invited applications from BTech, BE, MCA, MSc, and MS batches of 2024. The application deadline is April 10, with tests scheduled for April 26, as announced on the company’s career page.

TCS is offering positions in three categories: Ninja, Digital, and Prime, with corresponding salary packages. The Ninja category offers an annual package of Rs 3.36 lakhs, while the Digital and Prime categories offer Rs 7 lakhs and Rs 9-11.5 lakhs per annum, respectively. 

Despite the absence of specific hiring targets, TCS remains the top recruiter in the IT sector, leaving aspirants eager to learn how many offer letters will be extended.

The announcement comes after TCS management disclosed in January that the recruitment process for freshers had commenced for the fiscal year 2024-25. Milind Lakkad, Chief HR Officer at TCS, expressed enthusiasm about the campus hiring process, anticipating a substantial intake of fresh talent. While exact figures are yet to be determined, Lakkad hinted at a significant number of hires, reflecting TCS’s continued growth trajectory.

In contrast, rival Infosys indicated in January a lack of immediate campus hiring requirements, although reports suggest niche role hiring occurred in February. Infosys’ flexi-hiring model and focus on utilisation rates remain key considerations amidst market fluctuations. Nevertheless, the IT industry as a whole has observed improvements in utilisation and attrition rates compared to the lows of 2022.

With the tech industry poised to create 60,000 new jobs in FY23-24, as per NASSCOM projections, the sector continues its recovery from the disruptions of the pandemic. Nasscom President Debjani Ghosh highlighted the need for a correction following over-hiring during the COVID-19 period, emphasizing the industry’s resilience and adaptability in navigating evolving workforce dynamics.
