Indias pioneering IT firm Infosys has announced its decision to hire more interns under its global internship program. This program allows Infosys to hire interns from universities in Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States.
Infosys CEO Salil Parekh has been instrumental in helping the company make a comeback after losing the Indian IT bellwether tag to TCS. None other than Infosys co-founder N R Narayana Murthypraised the Infosys CEO for this transformational initiative. Speaking at an event Murthy said,
"I am glad that Salil has blessed Instep programme. Salil has indeed, in fact, for the first time in so many years, has expanded the scope of this project. I believe as against 175 we used to take, interns across the globe is probably now is 250 or so. This is the part of the various transformational initiatives that he has put in place ever since he took over in January 2018 as CEO of the company."
The InStep program has worked as a launchpad for interns trying to pursue a global career. The program helps global students to enhance their skills. Murthy further added that Infosys realised in 1999 that the company needed to enhance its brand by interacting with professionals from multi-cultural systems around the world.
This initiative has helped in bringing global students as interns in Infosys to understand the Indian culture and companys philosophy. According to the Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy, the best learning that a company can offer to these interns is the promise of using their work for solving real-world problems. The tech firm has trained several hundred overseas students and prepared them for global careers through its internship program
