Hunting for a job? Why not try Google!
Max Rosett, the latest addition to Google’s team shared his recent recruitment experience on The Hustle and has revealed a surprising way by which he got a job at Google. Mr. Max said he was searching for a solution to a coding problem and when he entered his query “python lambda function list comprehension” into the search bar of Google, he was greeted with a response: “You’re speaking our language. Up for a challenge?”
After reading the above lines he expressed: “I stared at the screen. What? After a moment, I decided yes, I was most definitely up for a challenge.” After that he was led to google.com/foobar, which is a programming test used by Google to discover candidates and was given a series of coding challenges to complete every couple of days.
He said: “I had the option to code in Python or Java. I set to work and solved the first problem in a couple hours. Each time I submitted a solution, foo.bar tested my code against five hidden test cases.” After three months passing through the rest of the recruitment process by Google, Max Rosett got a job at Google.
The Foo.bar test has been in the news for over a year, but Google has not yet confirmed the use of the test as a recruiting tool. After reading the experience of Max Rosett how he got a job at Google, every one of you must feel positive and can think of getting their dream job.
