The iPhone-making company Apple is coming to India to hire Indian talents. There are reports that the Cupertino-giant, for the first time ever, will hold a campus recruitment session in the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT-H) college in Hyderabad.
The placement most probably would be for the Apple’s facility in Hyderabad or Bengaluru. More than 300 students from varied streams like BTech and MTech have enrolled their name to participate in the placement session.
“We are elated that Apple has decided to come for our campus placements this year. We are not sure of the kind of profiles that the company will be offering. However, it will provide an opportunity to the graduating students to showcase their skills before representatives of the firm,” TV Devi Prasad head of placements at IIITH told TOI . The placement drive will begin in December.
Located in Telangana, IIT-H is one of the IITs set up by the HR department of India. The college last year managed to place about 120 students out of 420, in the phase-1 of recruitment alone. Microsoft and Google are few of the other tech giants that would be joining the Apple for recruitment in IIT-H this year. TOI reports that the college has seen an increase in the number of the companies hiring for artificial intelligence, automation and deep learning. ” The companies will be holding technical interviews in which students who are well acquainted with Python (a computing language) will be preferred. Majority of them are offering jobs for product development and research and development profiles,” added Prasad.
The India page for Apple shows three job openings in India posted in November. One is for a Senior Engineering Operations Manager for Bengaluru office, second is Project manager for Gurgaon, Haryana and third is software manager for Apple online store, again for Bengaluru facility.
