Google is no doubt a successful company. they have a recruitment web page at: http://www.google.com/intl/en/jobs/joininggoogle/index.html I went through these Google jobs infos . what i understood is the applicant candidate must have high level skills (Software Engineers). what i noticed is potential condidates should have at least a Master or PhD in CS. is that correct? i mean if someone has no official education degree or diploma will he/she have a good chance to be considered by Google recruiters based only on his/her skills and programming experience?
Have you guys tried to apply for a position as software engineer in Google? or do you think this company's high standards are very selective and require very high CS skills and education level?
let us guys discuss your thoughts about work in Google .
My guess would be that they receive so many applications that those without an advanced degree get weeded out by the HR folks before anyone ever looks at their resume in detail. Things are likely to be different if someone gets recommended by a current employee, though.

I agree. same thing is done everywhere i suppose. the employment market works like this with very few exceptions.
btw, how is the employment status now at US ? is the economic crisis fading out?
I heard the US in latest 7 years or so have greatly limited the worker visas given to non US citizens. it seems there is a trend or wave in industrialized countries to close their doors in the face of immigrants from 2nd and 3rd world. I suppose this is the result of complex political ,economic and social factors..but i do believe these 1st world countries will greatly loose with their new Immigration and visa awarding strategy.Most of brilliant minds that stimulate their economy come from countries like China , India and other third world countries..they are contributing very actively in the advancement of technology and economy of their host countries.. well this is a quite complicated subject in fact..but that's my opinion at least.
Many many years ago, I remember an article about Microsoft's HR practices, and how they retain the best of the best. While reading it, all I kept thinking was... Hubris. These days, while reading some of the articles about Google, I get a sense of deja vu.
