Been "terminated" from a job. MAY look at working at Google. Afraid of entrance exam. Anyone have sample GOOGLE Employment (Logic) Tests?
Any tips? Could not find anything on the web....

Although its none of my business, how did you get "terminated" from your job? I ask because you may find it difficult to find another position without a good reference, and in many cases, one reference must be from your last employer. So if they terminated your employment, other employers will be wary.

Yeah, give up! If you were fired, theres no way you would ever find another job. We all know people who are fired just disappear and never get to work again.

"Why did you leave your last job?"

"I got urm, sacked".

"oh".

"We'll let you know in a few days."


In my area, you would be in trouble if you were to leave your last job on bad terms because past performance is usually an indicator to future performance in the employers mind.

That is sad to hear. In US, people are let go because of financial issues the companies were facing(at least in the 2000-2004 period). That does not mean that the candidate is sacred. But it is pure bad that some one getting fired as any indication that they are not competent enough to get things done.

You would hire someone who can produce(as long as they look like a fit for the team).

I meant if the employee is suddenly sacked, not made redundant.

Even in the case of sacking, there is a possibility of conflict of interest between the candidate and the upper management of previous Employer.

Also, in US it is not necessary and mandatory to go with at least one reference from last employer. If the candidate is technically good, he has better chances irrespective of reason for the sacking.
