It's A Long Way From The Top

One of the things you pick up doing a business degree is how fucking awesome Google are. Used in nearly every human resource example possible, Google are constantly highlighted as the number one employer of choice. Pretty much of all time.

So when you're told someone will be in touch from Google and you don't hear back after three weeks, even with a follow up email, it's a little disappointing. Especially when it comes from a brand you love.

It's not enough to make me jump to Bing by any means, but a taint in a brand you love hurts the most.

And on a complete side note, the fact I applied for a gig in their Sydney office, told my best mate about it, he applied, he's pretty much interviewed immediately, my application seems to get lost in bureaucracy, he soon after lands the gig and moves to Sydney next weekend has absolutely nothing to do with the bitterness of this post. ;]

    It turns out that this is exactly why you should never pick Google as the research topic for an Organisational Behaviour assignment. You end up writing something that sounds like a Google press release and getting a terrible mark.

    On a related note, the staff in that unit are completely incompetent.

  2. On the contrary Rick, I did Google for that same assignment, but focused more so on some of the negatives I could research and picked up a HD.

    I do agree about the staff though.

  3. Dont worry I think it is worth your while just finishing your degree and getting into the real world. Year long internships just stuff up your flow and just mean another year till full time work.
