Social network giant Facebook seems to like IIT Kharagpur. It has picked up four students from this institute while it took only one each from the other three big IITs Kanpur, Delhi and Powai.
Computer science and engineering students Radhika Mittal, Vignesh Avadhani, Arun Dobriyal and Ashish Yadav have bagged annual packages worth 65 lakh and postings in foreign shores. This is said to be best campus offer so far this season. It is unbelievable but true. Our parents are really happy, Radhika said. I hope I will be able to add value to this networking firm, which is already making giant strides in technology, Ashish said. Though Facebook has created ripples with its salary offer, Microsoft is not far behind. It has offered 60 lakh packages to two students. Close on its heels is Epic, an IT firm. Google, Yahoo and Adobe have also recruited from the IIT-Kgp rolls. The average salary this year has been an impressive 14.5 lakh annually, which is markedly better from last year. A total of 1,659 students will be appearing for the campus placements spread over 10 days, said faculty member in charge of placements, Suneel Srivastava. Companies from a variety of sectors like, IT (Microsoft Redmond, EPIC, Google, yahoo, Adobe), financial ( World quant, Deutsch bank, Bank bazaar, Namura), Exploration (Oil and gas) (Rio Tibnto, Australia; Schlumberger, Trans Ocean, British gas), Analytics (Goldman Sachs) Consulting (Opera solution, Essex lake, Boston Consulting group), Core Sectors Hindustan Unilever, Texas Instruments, Brocade Communication) have already visited the campus.
