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.


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.

  • Zohaib Rizvi

    Amazing!! Good luck for future!!

  • Osman

    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…

    strange …. google engineers salaries are about 7 to 9 k $ … why he getting 12 k

    • Exactly! As usual ProPK’s article looks like it is only interested in numbers. And the title is wrong as well. They should have written about WHY instead of WHAT!

    • Faizan Farrukh

      Bro its google… Not Olx lol

  • That was my dream , i am 16 still working hard

    • idm af

      You are atleast 25

  • Or Yahan Pakistan me sari awaam Ludo star k pichy kutti horahi hai … !!! -_-

    • idm af

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

  • ImranG

    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.

    • proverbial bias

      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.

    • shiva the destroyer

      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

  • whoever calculate the annual salary should have been sacked. Is he out of his mind???

  • Ibrahim Muhammed Ojha

    Bhai i think there is something wrong with the calculation

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

    So this is not big a news

    • Ibrahim Muhammed Ojha

      And 2m is 20k US$ / month. Which is okay salary if you work for Google

  • Aman Sarwar

    144M = 23.7M PKR how?

  • Asif

    Still not confirmed by Google,

  • Carl

    mehnat ka sila zaror milta hey…………

  • Muntaqa Peracha

    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.
