The Myths and Truths About The Way Google Hires

"Today we are going to talk about two things," said Sean McGaughran, Engineering and Technology Recruiter at Google. "One, we are going to talk about some common Google myths and busts them and two, we are going to talk about how Google actually hires."

Busting Google Hiring Myths

"Let's get right into some myth busting," says Rachel Bonds, Business Recruiter and Talent Guru. "The first myth is about only hiring people from Ivey League institutions. That's not true.

"Our career site has some great tips on putting together a powerful and compelling resume. For example, your resume should be concise, generally less than two pages.

Finally, you want to make sure that your bullet points on your resume convey impact. Don't just list the things you did at your current job, but really how you impacted that role. It's one of the things that we care about a lot here at Google."
