Google has set the placement season at top non-IIT engineering colleges off to a rocking start, offering $2,35,000 (₹ 1.44 crore) to BITS-Pilani students who make the cut for international vacancies, according to campus sources involved in the process. Microsoft is offering ₹ 79.51 lakh for jobs at its Redmond headquarters. Last year, Google and Microsoft had offered top salaries of ₹ 68.34 lakh and Rs 60 lakh, respectively. Reflecting upbeat business sentiment, aggressive recruiters including Amazon, eBay, Flipkart, Schlumberger and lesser-known startups such as CodeNation have hiked pay packets by up to 25 per cent compared with the previous year, mostly for domestic jobs.
