Google Hires a 16 Year Old for Annual Salary of Rs. 23.7 Million

A 16 year old boy from Chandigarh, India has been hired at Google for a whopping salary of Rs. 144 million, which amounts to Rs. 23.7 million in Pakistani Rupees.

He will be working as a graphics designer at the company.

Unexpected

Harshit Sharma, a 12th grade student at a government school, did not expect to get a job at one of the biggest tech companies on the planet.

He said:

Who knew that an average student like me will get a job in Google. I can’t share my happiness about how I am feeling, it’s like a dream has come true. My hard work has paid off well.

He will undergo training during his first year at the company. During his training, Harshit will get INR 400,000 (Rs. 658,000) per month. Once his training is complete, the company will pay him INR 1,200,000 (Rs. 1,970,000) for his services every month.

Graphics Designing Since the Age of 10

Harshit has been in this line of work since he was 10 years old. His uncle, Rohit Sharma, secretly trained him.

Before he got into Google, Harshit used to do graphic designing jobs for others as well.

During my school time, I used to make posters of both Bollywood and Hollywood stars and earned Rs 40,000-50,000.

The interesting thing is that, Harshit has never professionally trained at an institute for graphics designing.

As to how he got hired, Harshit says that he applied through a Google link back in December 2016. His graphic design work on some posters got him selected for the position. Soon afterwards, Google sent him an appointment letter in June.

Harshit will be leaving for California, US on August 7th. In addition to the job at Google, he has also received an INR 7000 (Rs. 11,500) award from the government.

  • Are you fools serious? Just because he’s Indian? Grow up and develop yourselves to become half the person he is. Stop complaining, get off your asses, and start working. He got into Google because the CEO is Indian? You need to get your heads out of your asses. Stop being so naive and innocent. He is where he is because he worked for it – something you should try for once in your lives. Bunch of crying kids…

    • Because girls play ludo star. Boys will automatically go there also. Pakistani boys are known to be most desperate in the whole world.

  • Annual Salary – Training Year = 658,000*12=7,896,000 PKR or 7.9 million PKR
    Annual Salary – After Training = 1,970,000*12=23,640,000 or 23.6 million PKR

    What a load of bullshit is this article claiming salary of 237 million per annum, not even proof reading most important thing in title.

    Well, Mr. Haamiz Ahmed/ Mr. Aamir, such blatant wrong claims may increase page views for this article but will turn down sensible readers of this blog in the long run. So, don’t be stupid doing things like that.

    • I am in a fix. Who should i abuse? The one who made such a claim or those who published it? Does PP ever bother verifying stories before covering them? I thought journalism had some standards.

    • This is actually a fake news

      The guy had fooled his school teachers with a fake job offer letter….the letter has many spelling and grammatical mistakes which a company like Google will never nake

  • Bhai i think there is something wrong with the calculation

    2m / month = 24m / year and not 240m

    So this is not big a news

  • This is fake news. Google denies hiring him. Secondly, Google and other MNCs have strict compliance when it comes to hiring people full time. Underage employees can’t be hired like that. He’s still a dependant. ProPakistani, do a little more careful research and reporting please.

  • about harshit Job at Google is fake. Google already denied. They have no record about harshit. Jis kisi ne article post kia ha baghair tasdeek or research k post Kar Dia ha. Bros it’s GOOGLE

    • This is a fake news

      The giy had created a fake Job offer letter to fool his scho tea hers…this is actually a prank LOL
