Deepali Adlakha, a student of IIT- Bombay became one of the three students and only female student to grab the highest package of Rs 1.42 crore offered by Facebook on the first day of the placement season. She got hired by Facebook for their San Francisco office.
Here is what Deepali has to say about her placement —
This is a huge thing for me I am very happy.
The gender ratio is against us but even the guys got good offers from Google and Microsoft, so its not a gender thing, it just shows we are as capable as they are.
I did a lot of coding in the last few months which helped me bag the offer of my choice
