Facebook offers Rs 1.42 crore job to IITB students

According to the IIT-B placement officer, the base pay Rs 65 lakh offered by the Facebook is for coding profiles, which is same as for international positions and a variable component is higher than other leading firms.

Dixit, who was placed in California, said, "The highest offer does not mean much as we go on the base salary offered. It is more important for me to get into a company that I always wanted to work with."

On the first day of the placement process, around 215 students had got job offers. By the end of the second day, the number of offers made by close to 70 companies was estimated to be around 350.

Deepali Adlakha, who got a position in San Francisco said, "This is the main reason fewer women manage to get the top deal. This year, there are only five women in the batch, and most of us have managed to get a good deal. I did a lot of coding in the last few months which helped me bag the offer of my choice."
