The best way to check is to check the headers of the incoming mail. Do you know how to do that?

Here's quick way to do that in Gmail -

1. Open the email in Gmail web interface.
2. Check the drop down box at the top-right corner of the opened message. Click on it.
3. Click 'Show Original'

Check the message for suspicious traces. If you don't know how to do that, post the contents of 'Show Original' here so that we can take a look.

You might also just call Infosys office and ask for confirmation.

In addition, the profile here: https://www.linkedin.com/pub/bikash-singh/45/960/779 looks legit.

Usually the SPF records, and IPs would indicate the source of the email. If the IP traces back to Infosys' servers, then there's a solid reason to believe that the email is authentic.

Check for 'Received from' details.

No! It's easy to disguise email to appear from jobs@infosys.com. The IP address is something that cannot be faked (to the best of my knowledge).
