Indian outsourcing group to test applicants


Good News, finally some sort of proper recruitment procedure started. India will hold entry-level tests to gauge the abilities of people seeking jobs outsourced by U.S. and other overseas companies. The test will take place on 18th of November and will be based on the Test of English as a Foreign Language and the U.S. Graduate Record Examinations. The latter measures verbal and quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills.

NEW DELHI – The main trade body representing software service companies in India will hold entry-level tests to gauge the abilities of people seeking jobs outsourced by U.S. and other overseas companies.

 The move aims to tap new talent and cut the time and expense of recruiting new hires to India’s outsourcing industry.

 Candidates who pass will be regarded as having the basic skills to work in the outsourcing industry, even though the qualification would not guarantee a job, said Deepakshi Jha, a spokeswoman for the National Association of Software and Services Companies.
