HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, has launched its TechBee early career programme in Viet Nam with plans to onboard 2,600 candidates in the next five years, starting in 2021.

Designed exclusively for high school graduates, the TechBee programme prepares students technically and professionally for global IT careers in HCL. Candidates undergo an extensive 12-month training to become successful IT professionals and work for world-class global companies.

Any local student who has successfully completed high school and holds a high school graduation certificate or its equivalent can apply for the programme. Enrollment in the programme will take place through an entrance test.

After the successful completion of the training programme, the candidates will join HCL Vietnam and will be paid a salary equivalent to the job role.

Sanjay Gupta, corporate vice president, HCL Technologies, said: “Viet Nam has great market potential and talent pool for global technology companies to harness.

“The programme will give students an early start in high-tech career roles. With this programme, HCL aims to hire the best talent from the country and give them financial independence early in their lives. I strongly encourage all deserving high school graduates to enroll in this program and begin their global IT careers with HCL.”

HCL started the programme in India in 2017 with an aim to hire the best talent and enable them to achieve financial independence. Running successfully in India, Australia and Sri Lanka, the programme is training selected candidates in high-tech niche technologies to make them job-ready early in their lives.

More than 3,000 students have completed the programme and now work with HCL.

HCL began its business operations in Viet Nam in July 2020. A key part of its business and development strategy in Viet Nam is to provide the right skills and platforms to train local talent, including high school graduates, for career opportunities in high-tech domains and provide them with the requisite exposure of working on global assignments. — VNS
