Samsung India is planning to hire graduate engineers from top engineering colleges across the country in 2018 with over 300 of them coming in from various IITs
Samsung India Head- HR, Sameer Wadhawan said Samsung would visit IITs in Delhi, Kanpur, Mumbai, Chennai, Kharagpur, Guwahati, BHU and Roorkie, starting December 1 for hiring.
Wadhawan also said most of the new hires would work in cutting-edge domains like the following:
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Machine Learning (ML)
- Natural Language Processing
- Augmented Reality
- Networks Including 5G
Moreover, apart from Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), Samsung India will also be hiring talent from premier institutes like Delhi College of Engineering, BITS Pilani, Manipal Institute of Technology and IIITs among others.
“There’s a tactical shift that we have made to spot talent early and offer PPOs. This year, we had a slightly longer internship period so that students could spend more time in the company, giving them an opportunity to interact with the leaders and managers. This helps us spot a bright talent amongst them, Wadhawan also added.
In India, Samsung has three R&D centres in Delhi, Noida and Bengaluru. These units contribute to Samsung’s global products portfolio as well as work on developing India-specific innovations.
Samsung’s R&D centres in India mostly work on technology that is centred on the Indian customers’ user preferences and experiences. More than 8,000 people are employed at these centres.
