Big Data Used For Hiring At Google

A really interesting interview with the SVP of “People Operations” at Google. Leave it to Google to use a term that better describes the role. Sure beats “Human Capital” and other phrases I have heard over the years.

Google has reached a lot of conclusions empirically that I’ve known from years of hiring on Wall Street. GPA isn’t helpful in finding successful employees. Trick questions don’t tell us anything. I have been asked a number of those, including “How many barbers are in the U.S.”. Just crazy!
