Jobs, Jobs, Jobs
One of the best places to work, or so they say, is Google and now they are hiring. See this blog post here to learn more. They stated they would add more jobs in 2011 than ever before. The largest past year was 2007 with over 6,00 people so 2011 will be even more. This says a lot about their success. I would not venture to say this says a lot about the economy but only that this one company is succeeding very well as always.
Why work there? Here are some of their 2010 accomplishments of note. Android, the moblie OS, now runs on over 100 devices and there are more than 300,000 activations a day. Um, uh, wow. Chrome, their browser, has over 120 million active users and they state that their Google Apps had 1 million business converts. If you want to work on the above, as well as mobile and display advertising, cloud computing and more, that is one great place to get your feet wet.
