The Zurich-based wealth manager and financial services major Credit Suisse, which has offices around the world in some of the most prominent cities, such as London, Paris, New York, to quote a few has come up with a piece of news that can only be described as positively enchanting, given the testing times the country is currently facing in lines with the devastating second wave of the pandemic.
Stating the fact that it wishes to hire no fewer than 1,000 techies from different backgrounds from India, 2021, it seems, is going to be a huge year for those from India who have been looking to reach higher ground in their professional journey.
When you get associated with a multinational, it is, as it is, considered a fantastic achievement and that, Credit Suisse, among the finest organisations from a broad list of Switzerland is planning to go big in its India-related hiring is indeed, mega news.
That being said, the first time ever that Credit Suisse began its India operations was back in the year 1997. In the period of nearly two and a half days, India has constantly enabled the widely-regarded corporate to continue on the path of ceaseless growth.
Perhaps with the hiring of no fewer than 1,000 techies, that might only go further north.
Here’s what Times News Now had to add on the developing story:
The hiring plans are part of the organisation’s continued commitment to its presence in the country and its vision to establish India as a centre for technology innovation across the bank globally.
The Zürich, Switzerland-headquartered bank said it hired 2,000 IT employees in line with this growth strategy in India to tap its large skilled technology talent pool available in the country in order to boost its in-house capabilities.
“As we continue to build our footprint in India, we want to attract the best IT talent to join our vibrant community of professionals. We provide our employees with a dynamic environment that fosters skills development and knowledge-sharing, and we provide opportunities for engineers and developers to be at the forefront of technology and innovation,” said Prashant Bhatnagar, global head of experience recruiting for technology in a statement.
All of that being said, the vibrant piece of news surrounding Credit Suisse follows on another development that can be regarded as vibrantly bright especially for those who ply their trade in the IT industry. And just how is that?
There was an earlier report that as many as 5 of the top IT companies in India are planning to hire around 65,000 employees this year. And in this regard- experts are betting big on the likes of Tech Mahindra, HCL Technologies, TCS, Wipro, Infosys are due to hire over 1,00,000 this year.
Infosys, in particular, highlighted the fact that it intends to hire 25,000 freshers from across various campuses.
In some ways, it must be noted, that while much of 2020 was a year riddled with a severity of job loss across multiple spheres, it doesn’t occur that 2021 will impose any such harshness on job seekers.
At least, the above is true for those associated with the IT stream while we might not be able to say much on other streams. And what could be better than that, one reckons?
