Persistent Technologies: How IITian Anand Deshpande built a multicrore business in cloud computing & analytics

// Persistent is one of our regular campus recruiter and this year they selected 6 of our sudents //

didn't think entrepreneurship was for me, what with my father spending 32 years of his life in the corporate world. So, after completing my bachelor's degree in computer sciences and engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, in 1984, I went to the US to complete my post graduation and doctorate in computer sciences from the Indiana University, Bloomington.

                                               Mr. Anand Deshpande 

Shortly after I bagged my degree, I started working at the Hewlett-Packard Laboratories in Palo Alto, California During my year-long stint before my study visa expired, I made some friends in the IT industry and realised the potential of starting a company specialising in outsourced software product development (OPD) services back home.

So, in September 1990, I returned to India and set about breathing life into my business idea. For seed capital, I used the Rs 2 lakh received as tax refund; this amount was being deducted from my salary while I was working for HP. I also took a loan of Rs 1.6 lak ..

Placements dip as IT firms shrink offers

When Etihad Airways picked up five students from TA Pai Institute of Management for Rs 49.05 lakh salary per annum, it was just a flash in the pan. The campus placement trend for 2014 is a different story altogether.

Two years ago, Infosys had recruited 306 students from Dayanand Sagar College of Engineering but this year, the number dropped to 166. HCL, which recruited over 300 students last year, might skip its campus visit this time. There was one mass recruiter, though: iGate picked up 61 students.

This slowdown sentiment is reflected in other city colleges too. "The number of tier-I and tier-II companies which offer the highest packages are the same. But the breadand-butter companies -- mass recruiters important to a campus recruitment drive — have started reducing their intake. This time last year, around 80% placements were complete but it's still around 75%," said K Shreedhar, placement officer at PESIT. For original  post see here
