IIIT-H students land jobs in top companies

As many as 16 students of the 2018 graduating batch of the International Institute of Information Technology-Hyderabad were picked up by top firms such as Goldman Sachs, Bloomberg, Google and Facebook, among others, according to a press release.

According to IIIT-H officials, there are over 400 students from various programmes and streams who are graduating this year. The 16 who were selected were first part of an international internship in various companies.

Based on performance

They were offered jobs based on their performance.

Twenty-two-year-old Pravalikka Etoori, a student of B. Tech in Computer Science and MS in Computational Linguistics dual degree programme, bagged an offer from Goldman Sachs, London. “The main deciding factor was the type of work I’d be doing in the role I was being offered. Then, the brand value of Goldman Sachs and location being London have weighed in on the decision,” the press release quoted her as saying.

Also being picked up for London are Hemanth Veeranki and Ayush Mishra. Both have landed jobs at Google and will be a part of the Site Reliability Engineering team. Abinav Aggarwal, who interned at Google’s Mountain View headquarters too, was picked up by the company.

Mrinal Dhar, a Computer Science and Computational Linguistics student, was picked up by Bloomberg. “I wanted to work in Europe for some time now and I’m very interested in some of the products that Bloomberg has created,” the press release quoted him as saying.

Soon to be working with social media giant Facebook as a software developer is Vatika Harlalka, a dual degree student with a B. Tech in Computer Science with M S by Research in Computational Natural Sciences.

B. Tech and MS in Robotics research student Roopal Nahar landed a job with Booking.com. Ms Nahar had to take a hacker rank coding test followed by three rounds of interview and another three rounds on site in Amsterdam.

“The graduate software developer has the liberty to choose his or her own projects after exploring them during the first 9 months. So that’s another big plus point,” she said.
