The area: People Operations

Great just isn't good enough for our People Operations team (you probably know us better as "˜Human Resources'). Made up of equal parts HR professionals, former consultants and analysts, we're the champions of Google's colorful culture. In People Ops, we "find them, grow them, and keep them" - we bring the world's most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next great Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field.

The role: Technical Staffing Associate, New Grad

Being a Sourcer at Google means finding people in hard-to-reach places. Like finding needles in a haystack, our team of sourcers are responsible for discovering the most talented people in the world. As a sourcer on one of our functional staffing teams, you play the role of detective -- tapping into all kinds of tools and resources to uncover the best untapped talent out there. Once spotted, you engage with these passive candidates, learn about their aspirations and interests and help them connect with roles, projects and opportunities at Google. You are both scrappy and resourceful, are able to listen to what candidates have to say and then and connect them with the Google magic.

The Resume Screener owns the first step of the online application consideration process by reviewing all resumes submitted from external job boards and Google's corporate website. You will be part of a global resume review team, using your recruiting background and ability to quickly calibrate to Google’s hiring standards. You will evaluate and identify the best resumes based on defined criteria in accordance with Google’s hiring guidelines and policies. Your speed and accuracy are critical to ensure that all applicants are carefully considered and assessed in a timely manner, contributing to an overall positive experience that candidates can expect from Google. Moreover, your aptitude for understanding various role specific qualifications and zeroing in on top talent for further consideration by our recruiting team will help make a visible impact on Google’s ability to achieve its ongoing growth objectives.
