They’ll get a lot more information on TVC conversion once they start. With 12 months on the contract, they’ll have a lot of time to learn Google, make connections, and prove their skillset.

Is it true they have to apply to jobs via the publicly available application as an external hire?

Not sure how to edit post but turns out there is indeed a third party involved (the recruiters acting as a middle man 🥴). So he isn’t hired by Google, but rather google is now the client. I presume the recruiters are also taking a cut of the salary. Is this normal?

Extremely normal. My advice is once you start, if you still want to become full time talk to your google manager about it sooner than later. It's a whole process and typically not easy.
