Backdoor Entry in IT companies

Lately, I was browsing through Orkut
and was surprise to see a guy repeatedly boasting in various C++ forums
that he can buy a position in big IT companies via backdoor entry. He
was even quoting the price for getting recruited in different IT
giants. I thought it’s a hoax message and left it there.

Recently
I had visited a self-financing engineering college for an Invited Talk.
I had an opportunity to talk to the placement officer of that college.
He said, there has been a radical change in the process of inviting
recruiters to the colleges. All bigger IT companies have a much a
bigger HR department with a lot of HR executives. Amongst HR heads,
there are people who can do “special service” for a premium price. The
“backdoor entry” in the former paragraph is a manifestation of this
kind of “special service”.

The “modified” invitation process is;
the placement officer/management strike a deal with possible HR heads
on a per-head basis. The placement office pays the HR head lump sum of
money (black, ofcourse!). In return the HR head ensures the agreed
number of recruitment from the college to their company. There are no
stakes for the HR head, because most big IT companies have 100-200%
human-resource buffer for their projects. Most likely, the backdoor
recruits are for the reserves only. Moreover, the volume of employees
in a big IT company is so much that people don’t really know the team
members by name. An interesting example is; one cannot find the exact
number of employees in TCS at any minute (people come in and leave out
so much in TCS).

All these should come to an end soon. Recession
in IT industry is coming back. Only professionals with quality are
going to survive. Let’s see what happens…

    If you believe in yourself, you don’t need these illegitimate short cuts to enter IT companies.  Understand your strengths and work on your limitations.  You will be able to win the world.  Best wishes.
