HCL Technologies to create 12,000 jobs in US in five years

In the next five years, HCL Technologies will create 12,000 jobs in the United States.

The company said it expects to recruit more than 2,000 graduates over the next 36 months as part of its early career and training program - Rise at HCL. This is part of the organisation's New Vistas program, designed to establish innovation and delivery centres in emerging cities around the world.

The HCL Apprenticeship Program, which offers full-time tech jobs and fully-funded higher education for high school graduates in the US, was recently launched by the company.

India's IT service firms are increasing localised workforce in key client geographies like the US and Europe to reduce the dependency on H1 - B visas.

HCL's US recruitment efforts focus on North Carolina, Texas, California, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and its recently launched global delivery center in Hartford, Connecticut. Candidates can work across roles in IT consulting and technology, including agile application development, cloud, IT infrastructure services, IoT, data analytics, and digital engineering.

He said I look forward to continued success and congratulate HCL on their vision for job creation and plans for continued growth across the nation.

C Vijayakumar, CEO and Managing Director of HCL Technologies, said he believes that HCL Technologies is committed to finding and nurturing the next generation of technology leadership.

With 'Rise at HCL, we offer a program that is focused on intensive training, from on-the-job learning to soft skills development. He said that he is excited to work with recent and soon-to- be graduates to drive their advancement in the exciting tech space.
