Indian firms increase hiring in US

The Wall Street Street Journal reports that many Indian-based companies, including Tata Consultancy Services, are planning to open new facilities in regions across the U.S. Tata will open a new building in Minneapolis by the end of the year and, with it, a few hundred employment opportunities.

"In every market we operate, we want to be tightly integrated with the communities there," chief executive N. Chandrasekaran said in an interview with the newspaper. "In the U.S., it is important to create jobs there. It is important for us to be socially connected."

India's second largest software firm, Infosys, is planning to bring on board 2,000 new American workers with the right skills for a number of different positions. The total would be double the number of workers hired last year.

Job seekers who have the proper IT skills often find themselves in high demand in a number of different industries. As technology continues to develop, so will the need for qualified professionals.
