Amazon, Google, Cisco look beyond IITs

Companies such as Amazon, Google, Yahoo!, Cisco, Oracle, Deloitte, Adobe, DE Shaw, Flipkart, Direct-i, Caterpillar, Future First and IBM are on the prowl in small towns, looking to lure talent from NITs and good private engineering colleges. Given the fact that demand cannot be met by going only to IITs, the move to strike a healthy balance by hiring a mix of students from IITs and from tier II and III colleges makes sense. Companies are offering higher salaries and dangling better perks, including international assignments, free holidays and joining bonuses of up to Rs 1 lakh. As a matter of fact, Amazon, Google, PepsiCo and more such marquee employers have wooed students with salaries in the Rs 8-20 lakh range.
