eBay has announced the recruitment of 100 engineering students from tier 1 engineering colleges. Some of these freshers will be working with the eBay Product development centre and the others will work for PayPal India Development Centre. Presently, the freshers are undergoing a 5 week long recruitment induction program. The first week of the program is named as ‘UPLOAD’. This will include workshops which will help them to develop skills related to customer-centric design workshops, programming exercises, and innovative real-time problem solving projects and presentations.
Speaking about the recruitment, Anupam Pahuja, General Manager, PayPal India Development Centers said, “At PayPal, we tap into the bright minds of our young talent right from the start as we believe that innovation and free thinking play a pivotal role in our global success. At the same time, we believe in grooming them for success. Unlike others in the industry, our first-time employees are exposed to tough situations and real adversity during the boot camp – only to emerge wiser, stronger and more confident.”
On the other hand, Jayanthi Vaidyanathan, Director – Human Resources, says, “PayPal India One of the major challenges that any company faces with fresh graduates is quick assimilation into the way a company operates, including knowing its people, learning about its culture, and feeling accepted and becoming a part of the organization in a short span of time. UPLOAD is one such programme to address this challenge as it not only acts as a platform for the recruits to bond quickly with their peers across countries, but also instils in them the feeling of being part of a larger global organization and reiterates the company’s interest in their long-term future.”
The graduates will undergo a rigorous four-week integrated learning programme after the first week of UPLOAD, which complements their transition from campus life to corporate career.
