Google is consistently rated the best place to work. So you need a degree from Harvard to get in the door, right烦忙



Not really, according to Laszlo Bock, Googles Head of People Operations。

谷歌人力经营部主管推斯洛·专克(Laszlo Bock)表现,并不是如斯。

When the company was small, Google cared a lot about getting kids from Harvard, Stanford, and MIT. But Bock said it was the wrong hiring strategy. Experience has taught him there are exceptional kids at many other places, from state schools in California to New York。


What we find is the best people from places like that are just as good if not better as anybody you can get from any Ivy League school, said Bock, who just authored a book titled Work Rules! and stopped by CNNMoney to share his smarts申博开户

“咱们从那些处所应聘的英才便算没有比常秋藤盟校(Ivy League school)的教死更优良,最少也取他们个别优良申博开户。”专克刚写了一本名为《职业法令》(Work Rules!)的书,他正在好国有线电视消息网(CNN)财经频讲做客时候享了他的聪明哲教申博开户

Every year, 2 million people apply to get a job at Google (GOOG). Bock himself has seen some 25,000 résumés。


So what else does Google not care about:


Grades: Googles data shows that grades predict performance for the first two years of a career, but do not matter after that。


Brainteasers: Gone are interview questions such as: Why are manhole covers round烦忙 or How many golf balls can fit in a school bus烦忙 Our research tells us those questions are a waste of time, Bock said. Theyre a really coachable skill. The more you practice, you get better at it.


A shoe: Somebody sent me a shoe once with a résumé tucked inside because they wanted to get their foot in the door. That one didnt work。


Or a robot: Especially when it arrived broken, with exposed wires and a press here button. Call in the bomb squad。


Heres what Google does care about:


Problem solvers: Your cognitive ability, or how well you solve problems。


Leaders: The idea is not whether you were president of the student body or vice president of the bank, rather: When you see a problem do you step in, help solve it, and then critically, Are you willing to step out and let somebody else take over, and make room for somebody else烦忙 Are you willing to give up power烦忙


Googleyness: Thats what Google calls its cultural fit. Its not Are you like us烦忙 Bock said. We actually look for people who are different, because diversity gives us great ideas.


Whats most important is that people are intellectually humble, willing to admit when theyre wrong, and care about the environment around them ...because we want people who think like owners not employees, Bock said。


The least important thing烦忙 Knowing how to do the job。


We figure if you get the first three right youll figure it out most of the time.
