At Infosys, even senior-level lateral hiring will involve tests now
Infosys, India's No 2 software services provider, is working on expanding the scope of technical tests in lateral recruitment to include candidates across the experience spectrum. While technical tests have always been part of the selection process, not all lateral recruits currently require technical tests. The company is rolling out a plan to make sure all lateral positions require a corresponding technical test, Infosys said. This would mean even senior level lateral hiring will involve tests, which currently form part of various interview rounds that candidates face, depending on the level at which they are being considered. Infosys is doing this to ensure it hires top quality talent but there are concerns that this will also make hiring at senior levels more difficult.
