With improvement in demand for their segment, information technology (IT) companies are expected to raise the hiring of fresh college graduates, a Business Standard report says.

It quoted Anand Talwar, senior vice-president (Sr VP), talent management, at ITC Infotech as saying, “We use both the campus and off-campus strategy.
