CHENNAI: Tech giant Apple is scouting for talent in Indian engineering colleges for the first time and Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M) is where it will make one of its first pit stops in December.

Also, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) and Nasdaq will be hiring from IIT-M campus for the first time.

IIT students here are gearing up for the first phase of placements, which is expected to happen between December 1 and 10.

Among the other institutions lined up for Apple placements are IIT-Bombay and International Institute of Information Management, Hyderabad.

IIT-M is not quite sure of the student profile Apple is looking for, though coding could be a natural choice.
As many as 270 companies had registered themselves with IIT-M as on Thursday, to recruit students for over 400 job profiles.

According to a release by the college management, about 43 percent of the recruiters are from core engineering or research and development sector.

A quarter of all recruiters are from finance, analytics, consulting sectors, and 32 percent from IT sector. The institute will host more than 50 start-ups this year.

As many as 114 students have already received pre-placement offers (PPO), which come from internships. This is a 56 percent jump from last year, the release said.
