Redmond isn’t the only place feeling the pain of Microsoft job cutbacks.
The software company is also putting the brakes on hiring in India this year, according to a report in the Business Standard.
“There will be no significant hiring,” Microsoft India Chairman Ravi Venkatesan said during the India Economic Summit, according to the paper.
Venkatesan said the company hired a few hundred people last year in India, where it employs 5,300.
The paper noted that this disclosure comes as major companies are doing fourth-quarter recruiting at Indian engineering and management schools.
