Google Recruits with Brain Teasers

Posted on November 10, 2004

If you want to work at Google you are going to have to put on your thinking cap. Google is releasing brain puzzles on billboards and magazine advertisements to test and lure programmers and scientists to become part of its growing team. The tests contain questions like, "On an infinite, two-dimensional rectangular lattice of 1-ohm resistors, what is the resistance between two nodes that are a knight's move away?" Google currently employs about 2,700 people according to CNN. CNN also has an article about Google's brain teasing recruitment strategy.
