Home Business Googleyness



Which institution is 25 times more selective than Harvard? Google. Google sifts through 2 million resumes yearly to hire just a few thousand. What makes a candidate stand out against the millions of other eager job candidates?

In a Fast Company interview, Google’s Head of People Operations Laslzo Bock said that Google looks for four distinct characteristics before making its coveted hires:

  • Cognitive ability
  • Leadership
  • Role-related knowledge
  • “Googleyness” – someone different who can challenge the status quo

When you’re applying for any job, whether in San Francisco or on Peachtree Street, be prepared to show how you can push the envelope.
