Social networking site Facebook will now have an employee from the Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi.
After trying and failing to recruit students from the institute last year, Facebook came back to the campus this year and choose 21-year-old Ankur Dahiya, a student of computer science engineering.
Dahiya’s annual salary package is around Rs.65 lakh.
“Ever since I heard Facebook would come to recruit, I wanted to get in. My parents were obviously elated,”said Dahiya, who belongs to Rohtak in Haryana.
Dahiya will be placed in Palo Alto, California as a programmer after he finishes his courses next year.
It should be a wake up call for the Government of India as talented and intelligents students of India are being taken by other countries.
