Samsung had said last year that it will hire a total of 2,500 engineers for its R&D operations over the next three years.

 “There’s a tactical shift that we have made to spot talent early and offer PPOs. This year, we had a slightly longer internship period so that students can spend more time in the company, giving them opportunity to interact with the leaders and managers. This helps us spot a bright talent amongst them, Wadhawan said.

He added that the company will continue to add engineers for R&D in cutting-edge technologies, developing innovations for the Indian market as well as for the globe.

“R&D for us has become a key differentiator and we continue to leverage India’s intellectual capital and rapidly grow our reputation as the most innovative company in the areas which we operate,” he said.
