Abhishek Pant, a student of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, has bagged a dream job with a whopping Rs. 2-crore annual package, including stock option, at Google Inc.
The 22-year-old was offered the job after conducting a three-month internship at Google California earlier this year. He had to go through rigorous round of interviews before being absorbed into the design solutions cell. He will join the company in September next year.
"I am looking forward to working on new and interesting engineering challenges, and to working with a smart and talented team," he said.
Along with the new opportunity he is also looking forward to the great variety of food which is served on the company's premises. He said, "Google offers employees tasty, healthy and free breakfast, lunch and dinner from a wide variety of cuisines such as American, Mexican, South American, Japanese and Italian. They even have a dedicated Indian cafeteria. One of my activities during the internship was to try out all of these cuisines".
Pant was born and brought up in the US before his family shifted to Pune in 2006. Initially his family was wary of the move and was worried about his adaptation to Indian education system especially the three hour exams pattern here. He made them proud by excelling in his board exams and later got admission in prestigious IIT-institute.
