Top Indian IT companies delaying the onboarding of freshers hired in FY23 may give rise to a bigger problem, worsening the employment outlook for the tech talent completing their college degrees this year, industry experts warn. What has come as a big shock and surprise has been the recent news of Wipro asking candidates who are yet to be onboarded to take a pay cut as projects in their category are not available immediately.
Anshuman Das the co-founder and CEO of Careernet said the companies were going back from their commitment which could cause more difficulties in the coming months. But these difficulties are for students. “The first problem is the onboarding of the 2022 batch which is continuously getting delayed and they have a lot of pent-up offers. They have not been onboarded by January-February which is the usual process. Another big problem is that all these companies have to visit campuses for 2023 graduates which has not happened with a lot of companies. So what will happen to them is the bigger problem area in the industry” Das said.
