    Ah, shucks. They won’t consider a former “Walmart-ite” who’s still stuck in Arkansas?! Understood. As always, that for the info… I hope this helps some of our awesome folks in the industry….

    Hi Dave

    Thanks for the lead. I have reached out to some people in Sydney for that slot, hopefully it goes well.

    Good luck

    Hi Dave,
    Magnificent job ….A gigantic thanks for sharing the news!
    Best regards,

    I spoke today with a Google recruiter. He says where he is in Mountain View he has neither seen nor heard of any sourcers or recruiters being hired/interviewed. Doesn’t mean they haven’t been, just he hasn’t seen/heard of them. He says they really need the sourcers….I have also not heard so far of folks getting past the interview- with-the-agency stage. Again, doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened, just I haven’t heard about it…

    Perhaps it would be an appropriate time to let folks know how Nelson, Adecco (who also has the contract for Google Staffing), and Google perform in their hiring function, aka, “How they treat YOU”:
