I used to think that if I get 10 Lakh per annum package in a below average company then it will be great. There can’t be any better inspiring Journey You will get the answer later(end) as Suspense is importatn What was the most important thing in your profile that helped you reach Microsoft? I thought mistake is done as I didn’t get into good college, so what can be done now. I never expected that I will reach here, Whenever I tell my friends they never believe in me. They only believe when I show my offer letter. How many students go to Microsoft from your college in the last 5 to 10 years? Honestly I don’t know any one last year the best package was 25 or 23 lakhs but I got 43 Lakhs per annum Do better university students get preference or not? Sumit sir said. Exam is in 20 weeks. work hard regularly you never know you might get lucky. Do you think your college Helped you in getting into Microsoft? IITs have better curriculm than us for sure. Its not that they have better students, their program is also better We have more workload (Subjective as compared to Practical) more exams, tests so hard to manage On the other hand they don’t care much about the attendance so not a big issue. You are not the only one. There are lots of schools who force you to learn old versions of the languages like Java 6 even though Java 10 is out etc. Even at MIT students learn on their own from Online courses. Also from Projects they do. If if you will reach out for help, then you will be given the necessary help you need. Even in IITs they don’t spoon feed you..
