Infosys Ltd has said that the company is set to hire over 2,100 employees in the United States to increase its global presence and give a push to important departments like client relationship management and consulting.

Like most rivals, Infosys, India's second biggest IT services provider gets the major chunk of its business from clients in the United States.

The company said on Thursday that it intends to hire up to 300 management and technology graduates, who will work across multiple technology domains including digital, big data, analytics and cloud.

Up to 180 graduates will be recruited into the Infosys consulting practice in the United States, the company said.

Infosys has been keen on foraying into the field of new age technology like cloud computing and digitization.

Vishal Sikka, who took over as the CEO in June this year said he wants to revive growth through automation and artificial intelligence as clients modernize their technologies.

Infosys had been recording mediocre performance in the last three years, during which it suffered revenue growth, but Sikka's appointment was expected to be a game changer.
