When they email you and you booked a meeting with the recruiter’s calendar. It looks like they are aggressive hiring. I recommended a friend after my interview and the recruiter reached out to my friend as well.

Question it says you had been from EY, how did you break into google?

Technical Sourcer at Signature Staffing -> Technical Recruiter at Google -> Onsites -> HC -> TM -> Offer -> SVP. Contacted me via LinkedIn. Was responsive to earlier recruiters so LinkedIn’s algorithm did the work for me. No referrals or applications. Was much easier than directly applying or referral. I tried contacting someone I know who works there to refer me for bonus after but never responded. I tried directly applying but got rejected after a few weeks. No contact other than a canned email.

I was contacted in December and I start at the end of this month if that gives you an idea of the timeline.

Have the same question honestly. Looking to switch from a non-profit sector to Google.

Also please let me know what is the notice period in HashedIn.

Hi friends here… how long would you wait between FET cycles? I had a miscarriage (a few weeks only) in May from the FET, and my doctor said I could start a new FET cycle now that I have my period. I’ve been on Thyroid meds but they don’t monitor my TSH (unless I ask it to be checked). The doctor says no need to wait unless I want a mental break. I don’t need a mental break but wonder if I’m rushing when my body is not ready. Just confused… thanks all!

Underwhelming experience interviewing at Google thus far . Recruiters are far from organized while the actual interviewer comes with a robotic set of case questions without even bothering to ask anything about your background or experience. And when asked a question they give an ambiguous long winded answer which is barely related to the original question . While EY may not match the money Google pays we definitely treat prospective hires with much more courtesy and respect.
