Any accolades that'll set you apart will definitely add brownie points in impressing your hiring manager. Especially olympiads and hackathons.

The place I'm working at has a knack for hiring student athletes even though some of them are pretty subpar in their academics.

It really depends on the type of role you take up in an MNC. Sales/BD/Marketing in general pay better than support functions like HR, simply because the former is a revenue-generating function, and the latter is a cost function (i.e. does not generate revenue for the company).

Many MNCs, and even some of the large tech companies, pay better than government at a fresh grad level, and have better pay progression. Especially if you are in a Management Associate Programme. After you get the job, progression would have nothing to do with your grades or FCH, and almost 100% on your performance.

However, it sounds like you have an inclination towards stability. So public sector may be a good fit. I've heard from some friends that your progression in the public sector may be capped depending on your educational qualifications, and whether you are a scholar or not.
