As a part of HCL’s new people strategy, the program offers IT engineering jobs by equipping the selected 10+2 students with future-ready skills.
On this occasion, Subbaraman B, VP, HCL Technologies said, “TechBee was started in 2017 to hire the best talent and enable them to achieve financial independence at the start of their career. So far, over 7,000 students were selected for the TechBee program and are in various stages of their career journey with HCL. We have observed that there is a lot of interest in students in Assam and the other North-Eastern states. That is why we chose to do this walk-in drive in Guwahati.”
The program prepares students technically and professionally for entry-level IT jobs in HCL where candidates undergo intensive 12-month training for these jobs and the students also get an opportunity to do an internship on HCL projects. While working at HCL, students may also enroll in an undergraduate Degree program offered by reputed partner institutions like BITS Pilani, SASTRA University, and Amity University. Post successful completion of the one-year training program, students earn a salary between Rs 1.70 – 2.20 lakhs per annum. As a part of the program, selected students get an assured job at HCL Technologies upon completion of the training program comprising classroom training and an internship.
Eligible candidates must appear for an Online Career Aptitude Test (HCL CAT). Those who clear the test would be invited for an Interview discussion, after which HCL will issue a Letter of Interest/offer letter.
