During the last 4-5 years, attrition levels dropped to record levels, fueling an elevated percentage of resource utilization levels, work from home being a major player. TCS always has a focus on increasing the utilization rate of existing resources and better deployment of freshers, even during times when the economy of Europe and the United States does not look too bright in the near term.
Why the TCS Joining Date Varies
The arrival of the TCS Joining Letter consisting of the much anticipated Joining Date and place of joining is a memorable event for the candidates. However, it is often challenging for the candidates to ascertain exactly when they will get called. Even though the joining process starting from interview till the end is extremely well-organized for TCS, macroeconomic conditions and various other factors add some level of unpredictability. Candidates from the same domain and background from the same institute might receive joining letters at a different time than what their seniors have received in the past. It is a equation of demand and supply, read more on the Joining Date Guide shared above to understand how it works. The TCS joining date has been fairly resilient for decades despite fluctuations in the TCS stock index. So there is no cause of worry, but also there is no reason to be complacent. Everything has a breaking point, and you do not want yourself in the middle of it when that happens. Only time can tell what will happen.
How TCS Values Your Skills
The value of your education eternal. TCS values continuous learning and enhancing your abilities a lot. TCS itself invests a lot in research, development, and adoption of the next generation of digital tools and products. With a dedicated pool of skilled resources, there is so much that can be achieved in the technology sector. Here we see the career opportunities in Computing Research.
The demand for the new generation Web and Blockchain technologies is growing in India as well. The demand for Analytics and Computing jobs is evident from the TCS Digital profiles. Invest in your learning and you will continue to reap the benefits for years down the line. The main skills that freshers need to focus now is digital. Fresher hiring is more centered around newer skills, and their adaptability, and how fast they can learn new skills when needed. Wipro and Tech Mahindra is also projected to increase their fresher hiring by over 10% in the coming year. Here’s a TCS partnership in the Artificial Intelligence space.
When will you get the TCS Joining Letter
The arrival of your TCS Joining Letter can be determined as we understand your situation. No two individuals are in the same situation, or the same background, or have the same capabilities. Every TCS Joining Letter is unique and tailored to the individual. Download the Joining Date Guide mentioned above to analyze and understand your situation better. The top Indian IT companies recently announced that they will hire 155,000 freshers and this indicates clearly that the demand for fresh resources is still there. However, this number is a tad lower than the figure of 227,000 earlier. So the demand and supply ratio continues to vary. The fears of a recession is forcing all companies to move cautiously and conservatively. So the number of freshers hired can change in the future. Freshers accounted for more than 50% among the resources onboarded in the recent past. India being a powerhouse of affordable and skilled labor continued to fuel the wave of digitization and related technologies. TCS onboarded over 1,00,000 resources last fiscal year. Infosys onboarded around 85,000 employees during the same time period.
How long should you wait for TCS Joining
The process might move slower than you have anticipated. At the end of tunnel there might be hope as well. Tata Consultancy Services Joining Letter may be given to you, but the question is when. Candidates often wait for weeks after applying for TCS, sometimes the email arrives but no further update. In such cases, I suggest check with your official TCS point of contact to get the latest status of your application. You might be experienced, or a fresher, in either case there are dedicated portals and email addresses that will help you reach out to the appropriate team. Meanwhile, I will suggest keep applying for other jobs and companies. Doing that will ensure even if you are not selected by TCS, you will have backup options in place to secure your career. Be sure to trust the official TCS responses only, and there are no payments involved during the entire TCS recruitment process. The process is the same for Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, and any other city.
How to join TCS without a passport
If you do not have a passport, the best thing you can do is talk to your HR regarding your situation. Processing passport takes considerable less time than before, but your specific situation might need to be looked at. Create an explanation document and make sure to submit it. Because you will need to use this explanation at some stage of the hiring process. There are many other candidates whom you will find int he same situation as yourself. TCS will give you time to apply for the passport and once you get it you can update your details in the TCS system. You will need a passport to avail TCS onsite opportunities so keep a passport handy for immediate use if you want to travel.
Can you join TCS in future if you resigned
If you have accepted the TCS offer and then you did not join TCS, there is no need to worry. You can apply for TCS in the future again. Only if someone joins TCS and then resigned, their profile will not be considered in the future. This is because there were many candidates who were hopping organizations back and forth to inflate their salaries due to no such restriction in place. Hence in this scenario you can join TCS in future and apply for any of the available positions as mentioned in their official TCS Career site. The TCS Careers portal provides details for freshers as well as experienced candidates. There are exceptions however, if you are skilled at very old technologies like COBOL, Fortran, or, if you are a candidate eligible for a very senior position in the organization. In such cases TCS may consider your profile even if you have resigned from TCS in the past. But there is no certainty in this scenario as well.
