According to a media report, Citibank India is set to hire 500 fresh graduates this year. The hiring will be from top technology colleges including IITs and BITS Pilani this year.
"A lot of the future growth in O&T (operations and technology) will be fuelled on the back of our technology talent," said Anand Chopra, head of operations and technology of Citi in South Asia to ET.
Recently in a study by Indeed, freshers were found to be in demand for all major startups. The study analysed job postings between October 31, 2016, and October 31, 2017, for ventures valued at over $1 billion in their last round of funding — Flipkart, Hike Messenger, In-Mobi, Mu Sigma, Ola, Paytm, ShopClues, Snapdeal, ReNew Power and Zomato.
Citibank is preparing a workforce with technology talent to fuel growth and is making existing talent compatible with the changes, reported the publication.
"Most customers today would like to do things digitally at their convenience. Our job is to enhance these customer journeys and make them a remarkable experience. This is where technology is playing a big role," said Chopra to ET.
