E-commerce companies and startups are once again hiring engineering and B-school graduates to fill vacancies. E-commerce companies such as Amazon, Paytm, ShopClues and Flipkart — back after a year’s hiatus are going to the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and other premier B-schools, this year to recruit the young talent.
Babu Vittal, human resource (HR) head at ShopClues said that they are going to hire engineering and B-school graduates for most of the vacant positions, with more than 30 of them being management graduates.
The increase in e-commerce and startup hiring is marked with the beginning of this New Year. The demand for more management talent is also encouraging some companies to add more campuses to their list. In fact, online fashion retailers Myntra and Jabong are also looking to recruit at least 5-8% of their organisational size off B-schools. They have added institutes such as XLRI and IIM Lucknow to their list of campuses for recruitment.
