Let’s discuss jobs and programs offered by IT giants:
A-Wipro Wase program:
Wipro Academy of Software Excellence(WASE) is a unique program that was launched by Wipro technologies in 1995.

B-Infosys recruits BCA students as executives :

Why they prefer undergraduate students?
Though with the expansion of the IT market and digitalization, ample opportunities have been created for the people of all age in the market still there are companies that prefer BCA students over others. There are several reasons to hire young talents, let’s discuss some of them:
A-Fresh Mind and energy:
Companies who are hiring young talents believe that young minds have plenty of innovative ideas that can change the face of the IT industry. They are directly coming from the college without much industry experience that’s why they see the world with a different vision.
They have the hunger to learn new things, to create the network. The young generation is more tech savvy than the older one and they love to explore technologies in various formats.
Most of the time, young people are more open to taking risk and grow.
B-Early starting is always good:
According to some studies, few companies hire young people because they believe that early starting is always good. Young people are easy to train and easily can be mold in any format.
Students know that it’s very competitive to get a good job so they perform very well to get good exposure and increment.
Young students are more willing to work extra hours and put in the efforts in their work. They certainly want to prove themselves worthy of the job and they do not afraid to go above and beyond their limits when it comes to delivering things. Those extra mile efforts differentiate a young student from other IT professional.
Traditional degrees such as BCA are still attracting big IT giants. You just need to put your heart and soul in your work and success will be yours.
