Smartphone giant Xiaomi India has announced that it has hired 305 freshers from 100 business schools across multiple verticals like sales, marketing, and supply chain.

The company has hired freshers under its program ''Mission 300'' from 100 business schools across India who are being trained in business verticals like after HR, and finance among others.

According to Xiaomi India senior director HR Varun Madan, freshers will infuse new ideas, a high level of energy and enthusiasm into the company.

He also added that the average age of employees at the company would go down a bit.

''At Xiaomi we have always taken big bets on young talents. Around 7-8 years, we hired a lot of interns who have been converted to full-time employees and are leading a very successful part of the business for us. Out of 305, around 50-55% are women that we have hired,'' Madan added.

He said the headcount at the company has now increased to around 1,550 while with indirect employment, the total count is above 60,000 people. The hiring was mainly based on the learning aptitude of the candidates.
