The onecognizantexternal. Cognizant.com is the portal which is handling pre-joining and on-boarding process for cognizant new employees who has been selected and got offer letter.

I yet to join in cognizant this month end (27/4/2020). I regularly checking the portal for details. Today (17/04/2020) suddenly this portal server is shown as 'service unavailable'.

My fear is weather it is temporary? If so when will it work again. It is no only my problem, so may people will face the same issue.

Main Issue for this complaint is, External Portal not working. Due to that we feel uncertainty of our job in which some of us relieved from current job. Now the portal is working and I also got updated date and offer letter for that date from the portal. So I'm closing this complaint as resolved. I pray god give good path for all who suffers. Thank you all.

My HR told portal is may be up for testing. She does not get any information regarding this from their internal team. Once she got conformation then she will start processing .

I am experienced and got the deferment email from Cognizant with this subject "Deferment of Date of Joining - India" that they proposed new joining date 13th July due to Covid-19. As per moneycontrol.com, they freezes campus and lateral (experienced) hiring.
