TCS to hire 60,000 in FY12, 2012 batch excited?

It has never been such a dream run for the big giant of the IT industry. With quality projects and clients coming in the growth is just getting bigger and bigger. TCS has announced, much to the peace and excitement of the 2011 batch pass outs, that they will be recruiting an amazing 60,000 people for the financial year FY12, i.e. between April 2011 to March 2012.
This news comes at a time when their arch rival Infosys is already under question of their top status in the IT sector after publishing the quarterly results. The new headcount of TCS will be just over 2,00,000. The first time by any Indian IT company and hence setting a benchmark once again.

It will be interesting to note here how the local hiring goes on abroad since it has recently been said that TCS is also looking at their local hiring plans to curb down the effects of the visa issue restrictions imposed by the US.

In the mean time, advice for 2012 batch will be to brush up and hone all the skills they have and more. Because don’t go by the mere figures and think it will be a cakewalk. It’s the best in the IT sector and hence only the deserving goes through. I will be updating with required skill sets that you need to brush through now and then. To start with, pick up the renowned SQL, PL/SQL book by Ivan Bayross. If you do not already have it, buy it from here with discount and start reading it when it arrives after 3 days. Be prepared with this important subject if you are sitting for not only TCS, but for any IT company. Prepare yourself from now for the D-day! All the best!
