No Google Love

This just in...

Hi John,

We want to thank you for taking the time to interview with us on Campus for the
Product Manager - New Grad - North America position. The interview team enjoyed meeting you and were impressed with your background and accomplishments. It was a pleasure getting to know you.

We have carefully reviewed your background and experience, and though
we do not have a position that is a strong match with your qualifications at
this time, Google will be keeping your resume active in our system.

Even to someone who's just seen a couple of your blog posts, it seems that you really wanted that job. Tough luck! I'm sure you will find something just as good - or better.

It would have been nice to have something in my pocket to leverage and compare against other opportunities, but I'm confident I'll land somewhere doing something interesting. Thanks for reading, I hope you are enjoying the blog!

I got exactly the same answer (word by word) last week from Google, it was just for a different position and in the Czech Republic. I heard about some people who were headhunted via LinkedIn and ended up with the same result. Maybe they just keep track of our ideas we come up with during the interviews...There is one position in the Czech Republic posted already for more than one year. Martina
