Google Returns To IITs For Recuitment After 2-Year Break

McKinsey and Google will take part in the final placement at the Indian Institutes of Technology this year.

After a 2-year break, this year, the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) will once again have some of its graduates recruited by Google. Kinsey will also resume its recruitment here after a break of three years.

Raja Sekhar GP – career development center chairman at the IITs, commented that Google and McKinsey wanted to be on good terms with IITs and would likely to make a considerable number of offers. Many of IITs facilities are now being visited including Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Chennai, BHU (Banaras Hindu University), Guwahati, and Roorkee.

After 2 years of missing out on the best graduates, it seems that McKinsey and Google decided to place their recruitment on campuses like other firms.

Google and McKinsey will both appear in the final placement this year, according to Manu Santhanam – advisor, placement and training of Madras-based IIT. Furthermore, he stated that pre-placement offers (PPO) route had already been obtained by Google.

Previous AIPC (All-IIT Placement Committee) conference had been hit with the discouraging of recruiting off-campus. Because the IITs do not want to focus on high potential graduates before the final employment to guarantee the fair chance of employment for all students.

A proclamation of a top IIT facility’s placement-committee member stated that IITs did not have the policy for off-campus recruitments. Good offers for students are granted on campuses themselves, which limited the accessibility of talented students for other companies.

At the moment, IIT Roorkee has given Google a Day 1 slot to visit it for domestic roles. It is also confirmed that Google would contact IIT based in BHU, Guwahati, and Delhi. Also, an IIT Guwahati placement team claimed that the test procedure would be shorter than it used to be.

McKinsey is in a placements discussion with IIT facility in Delhi and has assured their participation at Madras-based IIT. However, fewer of IITs’ facilities will be visited by the consulting firm, unlike their Google counterpart. Roorkee, Kharagpur, and Kanpur based IIT said McKinsey would not be likely to participate in their placements.

The Economic Times (ET) reported that Google had chosen to bypass the process of placement at IITs after nearly a decade of hiring from campuses, which the McKinsey had already done in 2015. According to ET reports at that time, their choice was to hire directly through social media, alumni network, and other websites. These off-campus hiring acts have been constantly discouraged by the IITs.

Previously, Google has been offering hires around 25 lakh for domestic roles and Rs 2 crore for international ones at the IIT annual pay, which included relocation allowance, joining bonus, and stock options. Google, in 2015, hired approximately 20 graduates from the best five IITs’ facilities.
