Summary: "The information you need to land the tech job of your dreams. Whatever your industry, there's no denying the desirability of the perks and salary enjoyed by employees at Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, and other top tech companies: casual attire, free and unlimited sodas (or even food), flexible hours, onsite luxury gyms, and funky offices. Yet getting a position at such a company is far from assured. Hiring processes and requirements are unique, and the competition is stiff. The Google Resume gives you the only book available on how to win a coveted spot at one of these top national tech firms. If you're a student, you'll learn what to study and how to prepare while in school, as well as what career paths to consider. If you're a job seeker, you'll get an edge on your competition by learning about hiring procedures and making yourself stand out from other candidates. Covers key concerns like what to major in, which extra-curriculars and other experiences look good, how to apply, how to design and tailor your resume, how to prepare for and excel in the interview, and much more. The author was on Google's hiring committee; interned at Microsoft and Apple; has received job offers from more than 10 tech firms; and runs CareerCup.com, a site devoted to tech jobs."--Provided by publisher.
