For 43000 Jobs 8 lakh people applied at infosys. That's 18 people for every job. I know that sounds not that bad. But most of the high level jobs have very little competition. The smaller jobs for fresher's might have had huge competition where it would have been more like 500 for 1 job or something like that.
Its not bad when you take into account the number of candidates passing out of IT courses every year in India.
They have a huge training facility at mysore which can train 13,000 graduates at a time, with about 500 faculty rooms and 10,300 residential rooms.
Wonder how long this boom will continue, how much longer can they keep this up.
