TCS iON - Role in Recruitment

TCS iON is democratising recruitment by giving every candidate an access to a single, standardised, high-quality benchmark test to showcase their competency to top recruiters, while at the same time, making this pre-certified talent pool available for corporates to hire.

Pre-certification is done in the areas of cognitive ability, psychometric profile, industry awareness, and expertise in subject areas relevant to the industry. These tests are conducted every quarter so that there is continuous availability of certified pool throughout the year. We have targetted students who are freshers or have less than 2 years of work experience.

Access to the certified talent pool through our TCS iON Job Listing portal is completely FREE for the corporates.

We invite you to be a part of this journey that will significantly benefit you and your organisation in the process of hiring top talent.

TCS National Qualifier Test (TCS NQT) is a nationwide test conducted by TCS iON. It assesses the capabilities of job-seekers on their readiness for getting a job based on their cognitive ability, industry awareness and deep knowledge in specialised skills relevant to the industry.
