Google Changes Hiring Process To Meet Job Opening Needs
Google Answer to Filling Jobs Is an Algorithm at the NY Times (also at International Herald Tribune) describes how Google is changing their hiring process to accept a more diverse set of candidates. They have designed a detailed online survey that is now being sent out to Google’s job application database. The survey is automatically scored using “a series of formulas created by Google’s mathematicians,” an applicant can earn anywhere between a 0 and a 100. In short, Google is looking to hire more people, quicker, and have less standards in terms of SAT score and GPA, but with more focus on how the applicant may fit within the company culture and work ethic.
