Madhumita Sharma did her parents proud after she received an annual salary package of INR 10 million from Google. She has joined Google’s office in Switzerland. Hailing from a suburb in Patna, she comfortably cracked seven rounds of interviews to join Google.
She has been recruited to the post of Technical Solutions Engineer. Madhumita Sharma said that it is her dream job and in her dream location. “I got offers from big companies like Amazon, Microsoft and Mercedes but my ultimate goal was to join Google. Now my dream has come true,” said Madhumita whose father is a Railway Protection Force’s assistant security commissioner.
Madhumita said: “But I have proved this notion wrong. I completed my study from an engineering institute from pink city Jaipur in Rajasthan which is not so reputed yet I achieved my goal due to sheer grit and dedication,” she told the media.
She spent over six to seven months preparing for her interviews that lasted for 3 months and were taken at several locations like Bangalore, Sydney, Singapore and Switzerland. She also cited former President Abdul Kalam as her role model.
“Whenever I talked about joining Google, my friends would discourage me. They said it is not an easy job for a girl like me but I never allowed my dream to die and ultimately achieved the goal,” she said.
She comes from a middle-class family where she passed her Grade 12 examination from DAV, Khagaul in Patna. She did Bachelor in Technology (BTech) in Computer Science from Arya College of Engineering, Jaipur.
