Have you Googled Google?

We all know that Google is the world’s best search engine, but have you ever considered them as an employer?

Although it may seem odd to run a search engine on the world’s largest search engine, you may be surprise at what you come up with.  For example, did you know that Google has been ranked in the top five as “Best Place to Work” by Forbes Magazine. (4th place in 2010 and 2009 and 1st in 2008 and 2007)  Curious why Google has those outstanding rankings? Among other things like flexible work time (20% of staff time is spent on projects of their choice.)  but the benefits to employees are incredible both on and off campus.

Nervous about applying?  Sure it’s pretty competitive, but Google makes available information on putting together a polished resume or acing the dreaded interview. (Just a tip from me to you…most companies don’t make information available so opening to potential applicants.)  If you are curious on what type of opportunities are open right now, they have that easily accessible too!

Curious to see what a day in the in the life a googler looks like?  Check out a cool video from Google’s YouTube Channel!

Are you dying to see the Google campus for yourself?  Join us for the 3rd Annual Bay Area Trek March 11 & 12 where Google is a excursion host company.  Our visit to Google will be hosted on March 11th along with visits to McAfee and  Stryker Endoscopy.

The event for single Trek day is $35, to participate in both days the cost is $60.  To register, go to:

Touchdown for the Trek!


Avoiding raindrops here in Seattle, I am continuing to meet with potential excursion hosts for the 2010 Seattle Trek.  Although  the title of this blog post may lead you to believe that I am referring to the NFL team in town,  think again. We have just secured an excursion with Turner Construction, who built the beautiful athletic complex.

This tour will be paired with PACCAR, which will lend well to the overall theme of Engineering.  Turner Construction would specifically like to meet Civil Engineering majors.  So, for all those engineering students make sure to mark your calendars and plan to register for the PACCAR/Turner Excursion!  Registration begins this Friday, with link to be announced on Thursday.

Note: Corporate excursions are  made available exclusively for Gonzaga students (both undergraduate and graduate levels).  Alumni and friends of the university are encouraged to attend the networking social as well as the Career Fair.  More information to come.

Don’t get burned: What Not to do at a Career Fair

Retro-Oven-Range_2E7BDBD2Going to tomorrow’s Career Fair could be a first meeting with a future employer and you have to treat it that way! Just as you wouldn’t sit down to an interview chewing a fresh piece of Big Red, there are some big taboos that must be avoided!

Here are a few of our personal favorite:

  • Wearing your backpack: Pulling your resume out of your Jansport that’s been crushed between your planner and math book is not acceptable! Drop it off in the coatroom, please.
  • Don’t come a few minutes before the Fair ends because some employers may have to leave early.
  • Don’t bring the whole floor of your dorm with you. The employers want to meet you, not your whole entourage.
  • Don’t walk up to a booth and as “So what do you guys do?” Do your homework and know about the employers you are interested in.

Going in with a professional mindset will definitely equip you to present employers with your best non-flip flopped foot forward.
