I am tired(or jealous) or hearing tier-2 grads getting hired with 20-30 LPA.

When I was switching in May, some HRs(from PwC and L&T) had told that they won't be able to continue with me, since my existing offer and expectation exceeded what they can offer for a 3y exp, which was mere 15 LPA though.

So, how do these freshers (not from NITs or IITs mind you) get hired before even getting out of the college or 1-1.5 year exps, get hired with upwards of 30 LPA? Where can I find such jobs?

IIT tag will help you to get hired, and probably give you an aura for the first 5 years. Once in, only your skills will take you forward. In fact an IITian will be scrutinized more if they don't perform because they are paid way more and are supposed to be smart.

But that doesn't mean a non IITian will remain small all his life just because he couldn't clear an entrance exam. Knowledge is now free and you can acquire skills if you are determined. The playing field is being leveled to some extent.

Thing is …you don’t specialise in any of the technology mentioned. You know about them but don’t understand in-depth. Also, counter offers gives higher pay than you expect. Moreover, when companies ask you about your expectations, be firm and don’t change your mind. Suppose you Think that 30 lakhs per annum will be the best for you As per your skill. So tell this to HR, then interview, don’t accept anything less than that or give interview. Simple.

Only exp will not help you, you need salary negotiation skills and many other things as well. even i have same experience and tech stack and i am from tier 3 college, and i got offer of 32LPA. so there are lots of opportunities in IT job market, so keep trying. and never depend on one income source.

So for the sake of this argument, let’s just say there is evidence of fraud even though there is none. In order to change the outcome of the election, the trump campaign needs to disqualify an enormous amount of ballots. Remember Biden is winning by tens of thousands. It’s not like they can just tell the courts to disqualify Biden votes, they would need to disqualify hundreds of thousands of votes that where Biden has an advantage. And that’s just in one state. Over several states we’re talking
