A final year computer science student of IIT Kharagpur from Pune has bagged a job with a whopping Rs.2 crore annual package, including stock options, at Google. The 22 year old who finished a three month internship at Google in California earlier this year, went through a rigorous round of interviews before being picked for the design solutions cell.
A city topper in CBSE Class X exams, Pant was born and brought up in the US before his family shifted to Pune in 2006. He will now return to the US to pursue his career.
When the family moved to Pune, his parents were worried about how he would adapt to the Indian education system. Their main challenge was to convince him about the need to sit through three-hour exams. Pant, a student of Delhi Public School scored 97.6% marks in Class X.
“he journey from Pune to Kharagpur and from Kharagpur to Google Mount view in California has been quit exciting” Pant said. “I had a great experience working there as an intern. A job offer is the icing on the cake.”
He had to initially clear two rounds of technical interviews over the phone for the internship. “As part of the process, I had to do coding for a Google document.” He said. “I was further interviewed by the Project Manager. I cleared the third interview as well, and my internship began in May”.
At the end of the Internship Pant was offered the job, for which he had to go through another round of interviews. He will join the company in September next year.
