Google Interview Questions

Google Refrigerator

How many cows are there in Canada? How many tears are shed between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the southwestern United States? If you think these are just any old brain teasers, guess again.

They are likely on the “ban” list, but you’ll be sure to find equally diabolical ones during your interview.

Insanely difficult? Probably, but the best approach is to remember that they’re only partially judging you on your answer; how you answer these questions & your thought process behind it is infinitely more important.

Facebook + Hiring

Facebook isn’t just about sharing pictures and statuses with friends anymore… it’s becoming an integral part of the hiring process. Strong social connections are still the very best way to land your dream job. Facebook’s new Jobs app just launched with 1.7 million listings that can be sorted based on industry, location, and skills.

…this could represent “a tipping point” for the social recruiting industry, because it helps people “realize that Facebook isn’t just about pictures and friends, it’s about social connections you can use to find your next job or hire someone.”
