HCL hiring kids straight out of high school

HCL Technologies Ltd, India's fourth-largest software services exporter, is poaching young talent and in the process looking to possibly pip competitors who offer college placements by hiring students straight out of high school and training them to be IT professionals.

HCL (market cap Rs 1.23 lakh crore) is offering talented Class XII grads with a background in science a starting salary of Rs 1.8 lakh per annum and train them to develop and test apps for the firm.
