I found an interesting set of answers to interview questions. I found the answers first, and sadly, I knew what the questions were. If you haven’t seen the questions before, consider yourself lucky. Very early in my career, I lost out on a job because of these two: 1. Why are manhole covers round? 2. There are three switc... [More]

I recently noticed that a fellow Googler posted some thoughtful tips about interviewing at Google, and -- now that I'm a bit more comfortable blogging about Work -- I figured I'd contribute to the conversation a bit by offering my own, unofficial tips. Note the unofficial part. I work in Search Quality; aside from occasionally being ... [More]

Dream of landing a coding job at an A-list tech company? It might be a good idea to prep for your interviews by pondering how many golf balls can fit inside a school bus. Or how much you would charge for washing all the windows in Seattle. Or why, exactly, manhole covers are round and not, say, square. Seemingly random questions like the... [More]

We've heard quite a few anecdotes of bizarre interview practices from Google over the years, so when we asked if you had some of your own, you didn't disappoint. The company that turned down Bram Cohen, creator of Bittorrent, but managed to find a post for crazed neo-con headbanger Dan Senor, certainly moves in mysterious ways. So... [More]

The Google Interview has some strange questions on it. Here are my answers: 1. How many golf balls can fit in a school bus? 1 trillion (then I draw a Dr. Evil Picture) 2.

Some time back I interviewed with Google, and a number of other well known software development companies. I've written up a number of questions very similar to the ones I was asked, changing them enough so that I'm not breaking my NDA. Q: Why are manhole covers round?

Read previous part I and part II. The reception area was, predictably, decorated in Google’s funky decor: from the multicoloured chairs you weren’t exactly sure how to sit on, to the lava lamps churning away in Google’s colours. Behind the receptionist on the wall was a giant Google logo and projected over the top was a ... [More]

Find previous part here. In my holidays I’d gotten to see some of the fruits of my 35 graduate applications made earlier in the year. The demand is high, yes, but for skilled labour, not us university grads. Especially not those who are travelling to Europe for a month, or 8. Employers love well rounded graduates, as long as they get... [More]

Last time I was interviewed for a software development engineer position, the recruiter asked me some of the classical Microsoft interview questions, such as “How Would You Move Mount Fuji?” or “How many gas station are there in your country?“.

So contrary to some self-inflicted rumors, I’m not off to Google London or Sydney. My wife has taken a new contract here in Adelaide so we’ll be staying here for at least another 12 months.

For all their virtues Google is known to be very protective of many of their secrets.

It started when I received an email from a Google recruiter asking whether I would be interested.  Sure, I was!  Even though I was fairly content and well paid at my current job, I figured that if nothing happened beyond the interview process it would be an interesting adventure, like a voyage and maybe an extended stay in a foreign ...

I've been meaning to write up some tips on interviewing at Google for a good long time now. I keep putting it off, though, because it's going to make you mad. Probably. For some statistical definition of "you", it's very likely to upset you. Why? Because... well, here, I wrote a little ditty about it: Hey man, I do... [More]

I’m currently on a two week hiatus from work as this is the only couple of weeks of the year that I’m out of school, so it’s a good time to get some well deserved rest, catch-up on things in life and around the house which seem to slip during the busy year, and get recharged and ready for the year of work and school ahead. ...
