Pune boy bags Rs 2 crore offer from Google!

Abhishek Pant, a final-year computer science student of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, residing in Pune bagged his dream job with whopping Rs 2-crore annual package, including stock option, at Google Inc.

Abhishek finished his three-month internship at Google California earlier this year after which he went through another round of interviews before being absorbed into the design solutions cell.

The 22-year-old was born and brought up in the US. He shifted to Pune along with his family in 2006. After moving, Abhishek's parents were quite worried about how he would adapt to the Indian education system. But, he scored 97.6% marks in Std X and became the city topper.

"The journey from Pune to Kharagpur and Kharagpur to Google Mount View in California has been quite exciting. I had a great experience working there as an intern. A job offer is the icing on the cake", said Abhishek.

The IITian is excited to join the company in September next week. "I am looking forward to working on new and interesting engineering challenges, and to working with a smart and talented team", he said.
