I'm writing to let you know about an appealing opportunity at Google for
upcoming grads (and recent grads). I've actually just arrived on the UIUC
campus, and would love to meet with anyone who is interested.
As background, I graduated just last year with a degree in Computer Science
and have since been working at Google as an Associate Product Manager (APM).
I've been focused on improving Google's cutting-edge core search
infrastructure technology as well as optimizing the use of our massive
computing resources. Beyond all the benefits that Google always provides,
the APM program offers additional significant career development benefits
We are actively recruiting for APMs and have found CS folks to be great
candidates for this position, as it is definitely still a
technically-challenging role. We have positions both in Mountain View, CA
(San Francisco area), and New York City. We are looking for people who can
start any time between now and the end of 2006 and who are about to
graduate, or have graduated in the past year or two. Below I've included a
description of the program as written by a fellow APM. :)
If you'd like to meet while I'm on campus, please shoot me an email at
dpeterson@xxxxxxxxxx (it'd be helpful to include a resume).
If it logistically doesn't work out to meet this soon, but you are still
interested, please send me a resume.
Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you,
P.S. While the focus of this email is about the APM program, Google is
*always* hiring for essentially every position (software engineering,
project manager, sys admin, tech writer, sales, finance, etc), so please
feel free to send me contacts or resumes for other positions.
What is an APM?
An APM (Associate Product Manager) is the rare person with the raw talent to
do anything, and do it well: They are expert product designers,
technically-savvy, masterful salespeople, business visionaries, and natural
leaders. They are the ones who will change the world. Today they join the
APM program and start making their mark right out of school.
What is the APM program?
The APM program is designed to allow these exceptional individuals to reach
their full potential by giving them the resources to cultivate their
unparalleled talent. We invest more into our APMs than any other company has
ever invested into young employees, because we don't see the APMs as just
another group college grads. We envision a world where everyone is awed by
the fact that Google's Executives, the best CEOs in Silicon Valley, and the
most well respected leaders of global non-profits all came through the
Google APM program.
Each APM receives:
* a management coach (the same ones who coach our executives)
* ownership of strategically critical Google product(s)
* a personal relationship with our senior executives, including Larry,
Sergey, and Eric
* individually tailored professional development classes
* a trip around the world to see how global business works
* the freedom to take any idea and run with it
* rotation through Google for a holistic understanding of business,
strategy, and product development
* access to the powerful network of past APMs
* much, much more
We do all of this because we see APMs as the next generation of global
leaders with the power to change the world today. So, do you want to start
making your mark?
