Google recevied 75,000 job applications last week

Fri, Feb 4, 2011


From world class cuisine to sand-filled volleyball courts, Google has long been one of the more desirable companies to work for. Yesterday, Blooomberg reported that Google last week received more than 75,000 job applications, setting a new company record as the company prepares to go on a hiring spree in an increasingly competitive Silicon Valley market.

Indeed, Google spokesman Aaaron Zamost recently said that Google, with approximately 24,000 employees under its belt, has plans to add another 6,000 before the end of the year, which if it achieves, will be a new hiring record for the company.

In a blog post from last week, Google VP of engineering and research Alan Eustace explained, “We’re looking for top talent. We’ll hire as many smart, creative people as we can to tackle some of the toughest challenges in computer science: like building a Web-based operating system from scratch, instantly searching an index of more than 100 million gigabytes and even developing cars that drive themselves.”

    Wow a real suprise with most of the U.S People without jobs, and to even live halfway decent if you have a Family, Your Spouce must work and the cost of living is through the roof.

    Listen, This would be real news if all people felt safe and secure and even had a job and wanted to transfer to google to better themselfs.

    People are out to get what they can, and if GOOGLE is doing the picking why not, this wold be the same for any large company if they also made the smae announcement, but real news, this is not.

    What will happen when Oracle wins the lawsuit and Andriod is no longer free, do you still belive Google will see growth, But they are working with the Gov. So at least for a short time they might be safe….. Naaaaa.
