Why Wipro Prefers To Hire To Hire Fresh Graduates In The US?

Wipro has recruited lots of fresh graduates in the US.

Wipro said that the cost of recruiting fresh graduates in the US is somewhat equal to the cost of hiring IT professionals from India with work visas.

According to software services exportation major, these American fresh graduates also require less time to deploy and training than Indian tech workers. IT services company - Wipro is hiring local employees in Europe and the US. Those are its major global markets; this recruitment strategy also enables it to deploy its projects faster.

Wipro has recruited more than 6,000 fresh graduates all over the world just in the second quarter of this year.

Enterprises like TCS, Infosys, and Wipro have been dependent for a long time in sending IT professionals to the States on H1B visa.
