Student from Bengal rejects Amazon and Google, to go with Facebook; bags INR 1.8 Cr package

A student from Jadavpur University in Kolkata has landed a job at Facebook with an annual salary of 1.8 crore, according to a report from New Delhi. This is the greatest compensation package granted to any university student this year.

Google and Amazon also offered employment opportunities to Bisakh Mondal, but he selected Facebook due to the greater salary. “I’ll sign up for Facebook in September. Before taking this position, Google and Amazon extended employment offers to me. I believed Facebook would be the greatest option due to their generous compensation plan “The fourth-year computer science and engineering student said to India Today.

In September, Mr. Mondal will travel to his employment in London.

“I received the job offer on Tuesday evening. During the previous two years, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, I was able to do internships at other organizations and acquire experience outside of my academic studies. This has assisted me in acing interviews “According to the Indian Express, he said.

Mr. Mondal hails from a humble family in the Birbhum area of Bengal. Her mother, an anganwadi worker named Shibani, said, “It is a source of immense joy for us,” adding that her son has always been a “meritorious student.”

Samita Bhattacharya, a placement officer at the university, said, “This is the first time since the epidemic that so many students have received overseas job offers.”

According to media sources, around nine students at the institution got yearly payouts of more than one crore from abroad firms last year.
