India’s tech boom sparks recruitment rush

From Yahoo! News (AP):

On a hot summer weekend in India’s technology capital, 28,000 young graduates converge on a suburban indoor stadium and create a stampede for jobs in the exploding software and business service industries.

A large board advertising Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp. falls to the floor with a thud, jostled by a crowd of graduates clutching their resumes in search of a big break with the Nasdaq-listed company.

Cognizant was among 24 companies taking part in a job fair organized by The Hindu newspaper last month. About 100 of its executives sifted through resumes, interviewing candidates for quick selection and offering jobs to 150 people.

“It is like speed dating,” said Gautam Sinha, managing director of recruitment firm TVA Infotech.
