Great Learning, a leading global player in the professional and higher education segment announced today that six freshers on its online job readiness platform CareerBoost received offers from one of the leading tech giants, Microsoft. The company offered a package of 28.15 LPA for the role of Software Engineer to six engineering graduates from Kanpur, Ludhiana, Kota, Indore, Pune, and Greater Noida. CareerBoost is democratizing access to high-paying jobs from some of India’s most sought-after recruiters and equipping qualified candidates with the right skills to bag them.
Apart from Microsoft, CareerBoost hosts over 6200 leading companies across IT/ITES, Tech, Consulting, Manufacturing, Telecom, and many more to hire fresh talent. The most in-demand domains on the platform include Data Science, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, IT Software, Full Stack Development, Cloud Computing, Product Management, Marketing, Finance, and Digital Marketing. Launched in 2021, CareerBoost offers early-stage professionals holistic career support and allows them to take assessment tests, prepare for interviews and apply for jobs in top companies. On the enterprise end, the platform helps organizations access pre-vetted talent from colleges across geographies, hence streamlining the entire process, saving essential resources and cutting down the turnaround time.
Hari Krishnan Nair, Co-founder, Great Learning said, “In the past few years, the global skills shortage has deepened the gap between employable talent and organizations. Industries are witnessing their highest ever attrition rates, a problem demanding attention not just from HR, but also from C-suite professionals. It is exciting to see top companies like Microsoft rolling out high-paying offers to candidates via CareerBoost. The platform was launched to counter the hit that campus placements took due to the pandemic and has added incredible value to the learners as well as our hiring partners.”
“Coming from a small village named Naraniya in Madhya Pradesh, I had to move out of my home in class 10th itself to pursue my dream of becoming a computer science engineer. I did my engineering at Sushila Devi Bansal College of Technology, Indore. Not even in my dreams did I imagine that my first job would be at Microsoft. Great Learning through its platform CareerBoost has opened the doors for students like me in top companies like Microsoft which generally prefer to hire students only from IITs and NITs.” says learner Jugal Nagar
