Everyone is buzzing about DKS, an IIT-Kharagpur student who got Rs. 70 Lakh job offer from Facebook. As he has not revealed his name to media, everyone is looking for his facebook profile and what he actually did. Lets get a little more details about the person.
DKS, a final year IIT- Kharagpur CSE (Computer Science & Engineering) student is a Facebook addict. As he has requested we won’t reveal his name and as Shakespeare said “What’s in a name ?”
DKS is from Jamshedpur and studies at IIT- Kharagpur. Along with studies Facebook addiction gone so high that he was using Facebook for almost 12 hours a day. Finally this addiction resulted in a job when he got offer letter from Facebook.
He was used to solve programming puzzles from Facebook itself and submit the solution, which were being published on the official page. The solution for puzzles increases your chances of getting a job at Facebook. The harder you solve, the faster you get hired, so does DKS.
DKS posted a status for his friends on wall, ‘Facebook ate my 12 hours of a day’, as an indication of his job in Facebook.
During his 2nd & 3rd year of studies at IIT-KGP he has taken internships in leading companies from industry.
