Amazon, Flipkart lead in B-school recruitment, Technology News, ETtech

Early trends: Amazon, Flipkart lead in B-school recruitment In the hunt for talent on Indian campuses, early trends show Amazon as the top recruiter among ecommerce and tech companies with Walmart-owned Flipkart following closely. At the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), where final placements are underway, Amazon is ahead. It also leads in summer placement offers at the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and the schools expect this trend to continue for the finals as well. Amazon has been increasing offers at IIM Ahmedabad for the past three years.

“We expect that the demand for talent by top ecommerce companies would only go up as they are penetrating more small towns and cities,” said Amit Karna, chairperson of the placement committee at IIM Ahmedabad. “They would need more talent, especially from premium management schools.”

Flipkart is looking to hire interns from the top 22 Bschools, a company spokesperson said. “We continue to hire across business and product roles through campus hiring,” the person said.

“This year would truly reflect Walmart’s buying into Flipkart,” Karna said. “As a result, we expect more offers being made in the finals.”

Amazon didn’t respond to queries.

The ecommerce marketplace is the top recruiter at the NITs, including those at Jalandhar, Trichy, Calicut and Malviya NIT, Jaipur. Amazon was day 1 recruiter at NIT Trichy this year along with others like Microsoft, DE Shaw and General Electric (GE).

At the IIMs, where summer placements are almost over, Amazon and Flipkart are ahead of other companies.
