Abhijeet, who hails from Prayagraj, has been hired as a software development engineer for Amazon in Dublin, Ireland.LUCKNOW: BTech ( Information Technology ) final year student Abhijeet Dwivedi of the Indian Institute of Information and Technology (IIIT), Lucknow, has become the student to bag the highest ever annual pay package of Rs 1.2 crore at the institute.
Abhijeet, who hails from Prayagraj , has been hired as a software development engineer for Amazon in Dublin, Ireland.
Breaking all previous records, IIIT-Lucknow has this year succeeded not only in getting 100% placement for its students, but also in getting them placed on a comparatively higher salary package.This year’s average pay package during IIIT-L placement drive was Rs 26 lakh per annum.
As many as 61 students got placed, while four students opted for higher studies.
“One should work on certain things to land a good job.Firstly, make connections like staying in touch with seniors to know about job opportunities and taking tips from them to crack interviews, secondly having a profile on popular employment portals that keeps getting updated with new openings,” said Abhijeet.
One should see videos on how to crack interviews in a particular field, make notes of all main and common points suggested by experts and then ensure whether one has that quality or not.
If not, then start working on it without delay, he added.
“I saw several videos to prepare myself for the interview,” said Abhijeet.
“Soft skills matter a lot, hence engineering graduates should not think that they just need to have technical knowledge, communication skills and body language are also equally important,” he added.
IIIT-Lucknow director Arun Mohan Sherry said, “We have improved a lot this year in placements and are at par with top engineering institutes of the country.Both the average and median pay packages offered to our students have improved immensely.”
Till last year, the highest salary package our student got was around Rs 40 lakh annually, but this year it has gone up to Rs 1.20 crore, which shows that we are going in the right direction, he added.
