Apple to scout for talent at IIT-Bombay this year
19 Nov 2017
  • 2017 will be remembered as the year Apple made inroads into India's campus placements. One of their halts would be at the International Institute of Information Technology-Hyderabad (IIIT-H).
  • It has now surfaced that the tech giant will also be visiting IIT-Bombay. It has reportedly circulated forms for candidates already.
  • Apple is likely to hire for its Hyderabad and Bengaluru facilities.

  • What is Apple looking for?
  • Apple will reportedly be hiring for positions in coding. Applications for the preliminary exam were circulated around November 12.
  • The test would be held before the semester exams, scheduled to start at the end of November. Placements are expected to start as soon as they end in early December.
  • Apple is expected to visit other IITs too, but there's no word on that yet.

  • Tech giant reportedly unhappy with IIIT-H's conduct
  • Earlier in November, IIIT-H had announced Apple will be participating in its campus placements.
  • About 350 BTech, MTech and MSc students have already registered for the college's placement session which will begin in December.
  • Google, Microsoft and Philips are other top companies that have registered.
  • However, Apple's HR division reportedly wasn't happy about the fact that IIIT-H publicly commented on its participation.

  • Apple's India expansion plans still hang in uncertainty
  • Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook said at the start of November that its India revenue doubled year-on-year for the quarter ending September; iPad sales also grew 39%.
  • Though it started local manufacturing of the iPhone SE in May with a partner vendor, it hasn't scaled up.
  • The government hasn't yet agreed to its demand for tax incentives and other benefits for local manufacturing.
