The TCS National Qualifier Test (TNQT) is all set to start in October, a month later than usual. This campus recruitment test by the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), covers more than 1,800 technical institutions and is eagerly awaited by students across campuses in India.
Although the hiring process is beginning late, owing to the delay in exams, there will be no change in the requirements or the recruitment strategy. However, this time, the TNQT will be conducted virtually, and not at the institutes and TCS iON centres as is the usual practice.
The hiring process, which usually witnesses participation by about 40,000 students annually, will be completed by December.
The online oboarding for the students who are joining this year has already begun. About 17,000 to 20,000 freshers from the 2019-20 batch will be entering TCS’ workforce in the fourth quarter of 2021 and early 2022. These students are going to fulfil the IT company’s resource needs across the globe.
Tata Consultancy Services is undeterred by the visa situation in the US, as it has been hiring significantly across US campuses. It has already employed almost 1,000 trainees locally this year, and is gearing up to step up campus hiring in the US.
Changes in TCS’ policies will allow its employees to develop their skills and expertise in specific areas and work on several projects across countries, even while remaining fully transparent with the clients.
