Google recruits like it’s 1999

The Google-obsessed Forbes has yet another story about Google. This time it is about their recruitment tactics.

Forbes: The leading search-engine company drew some 200 prospective recruits to its Santa Monica, California offices, many of them eager to work in an office featuring an open kitchen, cushy chairs, a surfboard at the entrance and a dazzling array of lights projected on the roof.

“Google and this event are still kind of holding on to the tech bubble mentality,” said Nathan Schurr, a doctoral candidate in computer science at the University of Southern California who came to the party to see what Google had to offer. What it did offer, at least for one night, were hors d’oeuvres from the kitchen of legendary chef Wolfgang Puck, car parking by a band of beautiful women who call themselves Valet of the Dolls and multiple open bars.
