Larsen & Toubro (L&T), the engineering and construction conglomerate, is expected to hire around 1,100 graduate and post-graduate engineers as trainees in 2021.
The Company has already offered 250 positions across institutions, such as the IITs of Kharagpur, Madras, Roorkee, Guwahati and Delhi, to name a few. The hired trainees will be absorbed across various business verticals. There will be continuous learning opportunities and a good opportunity for growth for these hired engineers.
It has been L&T’s practice to hire more than 1,000 engineers every year from premier institutions, including the IITs and NITs. With remote working becoming the norm, the Company adopted virtual hiring through relying on its unique online internal hiring platform.
The hired talents are put through a three-week internally-developed induction/training programme. For 2020, the whole process was conducted in August itself, with training given through digital and remote modes respectively, over a period of three weeks. This enabled the engineers to acquaint themselves with the core values and strategies of L&T.
The Graduate Engineer Training (GET) programme has alumni and leaders from across various leadership roles in the Company pitching in. This is one of the signature programmes of L&T and an integral part of its rigorous selection process. The GET and Post-Graduate Engineers Training (PGET) programme further impart hands-on experiential learning to the young trainees and give them the chance to interact with senior employees.
The new talent pool will be deployed across its business and functional aspects — business development, design, strategy, project, construction and contract management.
