Shopkeeper’s son bags Microsoft job offer worth ₹50 lakh after rejecting Amazon, Cognizant.

Microsoft has made a job offer to Madhur Rakheja, a BTech student at the interdisciplinary institution UPES in Dehradun, worth 50 lakhs.

Madhur had a list of businesses that he hoped to be chosen by. Microsoft was on that list, so he read up on other people’s interview experiences and studied the necessary abilities in order to get ready for the selection process. It was an on-campus placement. In addition to Microsoft, Madhur had sent applications to numerous other businesses, both on and off campus, including Amazon, DE Shaw, Optum, Cognizant, Infosys, and others.
