“If you have had enough of your 9-5 corporate job and are looking for something refreshing and challenging, we will gladly welcome you,” says a tweet by Nayi Disha, a start-up founded by BITS students. The start-up, which develops educational computer games, is among scores of new-generation firms scouting for talent through word of mouth and social media.

With top-tier IT and IT-enabled services companies drastically reducing hiring, engineering students are turning to start-ups.
