Open Positions with GOOGLE

Google is not a conventional company, and don’t intend to become one. True, they share attributes with the world’s most successful organizations – a focus on innovation and smart business practices comes to mind – but even as they continue to grow, they’re committed to retaining a small-company feel. At Google, they know that every employee has something important to say, and that every employee is integral to their success.

They provide individually-tailored compensation packages that can be comprised of competitive salary, bonus, and equity components, along with the opportunity to earn further financial bonuses and rewards. Googlers thrive in small, focused teams and high-energy environments, believe in the ability of technology to change the world, and are as passionate about their lives as they are about their work.

From Finance to Product Management: How to Escape the Dungeon and Move into the Technology Industry

Great article by Brian DeChesare in Mergers & Inquisitions:

Can you quit finance and move into technology?

It seems to be the trendy thing to do.

After all, news articles repeatedly tell us that “the best and brightest” no longer go into finance, and that Google and Facebook are now more appealing than Goldman Sachs.

But if you want to make this switch, it’s not quite as simple as showing up at a technology company and saying, “Hire me!”

To succeed, you have to spin your experience into sounding relevant, and then network and interview successfully – the same things you must do to get into finance.

A reader – Bowen Li – recently went through this process at TaskRabbit (now acquired by IKEA) and volunteered to share his experiences. Read the full article here.”

New Resume Assistant From LinkedIn and Microsoft

Thanks to Kailash Pandey ’19 for sharing this with us!

Microsoft and LinkedIn have created a new Resume Assistant. It is a tool to help users optimize their resumes for specific jobs, and is now available for Office 365 subscribers on Windows! Resume Assistant simply pops up in a sidebar and helps by offering examples of work experience descriptions you can use as inspiration for your resume based on a role (like a project manager) or an industry (like journalism). You can also filter through skills prospective employers might be looking for to fine-tune and tailor your CV.

To access the feature, just open Word, click on Review, then click Resume Assistant. Create a draft of your resume and then come meet with one of the PCAs during drop-in hours and they can give you feedback to make sure it is ready for applications! Drop in hours are Monday-Friday 12:30-4:00 pm in the Adirondack House.

The CCI works closely with members from the Middlebury Professional Networks (MPNs) to plan meaningful activities throughout the experience. We also collaborate with the alumni office and the relevant academic department. For this Trek, new computer science instructor, Jason Grant is traveling with us!
