For the first time in the history, the Cupertino-based tech major has made a decision to come to an engineering college in India with proposals for job. And after knowing about the presence of the tech major at campus recruitments of this year, candidates at the IIIT-H (International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad) here have discovered a fine reason to be overjoyed with hopefulness.
“We are ecstatic that Apple has made a decision to come this year for our campus placements. We are not certain of the type of portfolios that the firm will be providing to us. On the other hand, it will offer a chance to the graduating candidates to display their talents in front of the representatives of the tech major,” claimed head of placements for IIITH, T V Devi Prasad, to the media in an interview here. He further added that the placements for Apple are expected to be for its Bengaluru and Hyderabad facilities.
In addition to Apple, the other big firms that have enrolled with IIITH are Google, Microsoft, and Philips to name a handful. Almost 350 BE, BTech, MSc, and MTech (research) candidates from the organization have so far enrolled for the placement event that is geared up to start in December.
Spokespersons claimed that they noticed an elevation in the number of firms employing for data science, artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, and automation in this season of placement. “The firms will be conducting technical interviews in which candidates who are well up to date with Python (a computer language) will be favored. Most of them are providing jobs for research and development as well as product development profiles,” claimed Prasad in his statement.
“The need is high for hardware engineers this year with many firms seeking forward to employing students with acquaintance in application-based integrated design and circuit verification. There is also huge requirement for candidates who have understanding for 2D-3D graphic in mobile communication,” further claimed Prasad.
Only one firm, indeed, has enrolled with the organization so far for an “out of the country” offer. Let us see how many more firms approach.
