HCL is adding a little twist in the placement process, as it is hiring the kids directly after class 12, straight out of the school.
According to the reports, other companies who offer placement after the college education, HCL is now hiring the students straight out of the school after the class 12. The company will train them to be the IT professionals who in turn will work for the company. Speaking about this new change the Vice-President of HCL technologies said " The program aims to provide opportunities to bright students who do not have access to the right jobs. This will also help the company to create a dedicated workforce. We are looking at on-boarding young minds."

In the last three months 100 students will be send to the Lucknow and Madurai training centers for on-the-job training purposes.
