K. Purushothaman, Regional Director, NASSCOM:
These are certain lessons from recession - not to recruit people who become ‘liabilities' in future, and to rope in people fairly ready to be deployed. Engineering colleges teach student what the industry wants, not what it does. Concepts of quality and testing are never taught in colleges. The IT industry plans to recruit at least 30,000 engineering graduates from the State this year. We are driven by business, not charity, and we want recruit smart people who can be trained and geared up to look on all verticals.
