Amazon, Flipkart lead in B-school hiring
Amazon has emerged as the top recruiter among e-commerce and technology companies for hiring talent across different campuses in India. Walmart-owned Flipkart is coming close to the second place after Amazon in terms of campus recruitment from leading B-Schools.
Amazon is leading at the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), as final placements are also in process. Additionally, when it comes to the summer placement offers at the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), Amazon continues to be ahead with a rise in the number of offers at IIM Ahmedabad for the last three years.
Flipkart is also looking to hire interns from top 22 B-schools and continues to hire across business and product job roles via campus recruitment.
“We expect that the demand for talent by top ecommerce companies would only go up as they are penetrating more small towns and cities,” said Amit Karna, Chairperson of Placement Committee at IIM Ahmedabad.
Flipkart is hiring for roles such as management trainees, product management, and supply chain design and operations roles from IIMs while Amazon has been hiring software development engineers from NITs.
