Google graduates: Could the dream job become a reality?

Published: Wednesday, 18 April 2012   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Graduate opportunities at Google are, contrary to what many people might expect, numerous and fairly easy to access.

The leading search engine and global IT brand is committed to taking part in the education of the future innovators in both technology and business.

Google has multiple programs that aim to promote science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) education. In addition, they plan to use a variety of challenges and competitions to test the technical skills of students.

Google graduate positions

Graduate opportunities in Google can be split into two different sectors: technical and non-technical positions.

IT engineers at Google will work each day on challenging problems and will be asked to come up with creative solutions. As for the ‘non-engineering’ functions at Google, positions include Advertising Sales, Administrative, Marketing, Finance, and People Operations.

Programs and scholarships

The global company is fully committed to younger workers and recently proved it by awarding over $8.8 million (£5.5 million) in scholarships to more than 2,100 Google scholars.

While Google scholarships aim to encourage students to excel in their studies and become active role models and leaders in the future; Google programmes hope to encourage all sorts of graduates to enter into the computing and technology fields – including women and minorities.

The most attractive business and engineering employer

Recent research by the leading employer branding company Universum revealed that Google is the world's most attractive employer, standing out as the undisputed leader once again.

The index, entitled ‘The World's Most Attractive Employers 2011’, splits the results into business and engineering categories, with Google leading the way in both rankings.

These results are based on the preferences of over 160,000 career seekers, with a business or engineering background, from the world's 12 largest economies.
