    Hey Satrap,
    I’ve always thought that those ads were a scam, but I didn’t realize there was also an official google job site. That’s pretty awesome.

    • satrap says:


      Yeah, most of those ads are actually scams. Google usually doesn’t put any ads when hiring people for those positions.

      Thanks for stopping by Richard.

    This is a very informative post. Google also contracts out through other companies. If the ads for Google Jobs are flashy- run! But, I know for a fact that Lionbridge, Leapforce, Workforce Logic, and Butler Hill handle contracts with Google and you can apply through these companies to become an Internet Assessor or Search Engine Evaluator. The companies label this position differently, but it all consists of assessing the utility of various search engine results. The best advice is to not pay money for any job.

    This is a great way to provide people with a trustworthy place to find jobs in this tough economy while still being able to stay home. I didn’t realize there are people trying to act like Google, but it is good you informed people of that.

    • Bruker says:

      @Caleb, I agree with you, in the name of trusted google is a big name and getting job from them is brilliant

    • Lovely Chu says:

      Yes I agree. Google is a trusted name and we can be sure that we are dealing with a credible one. The’re so many scammers online now that we have to pay first before we can get the job. But I’m not sure if there’s really a job waiting.

      • satrap says:

        Yeah, Google is a trusted name and that is why its important to make sure you are not falling for a scam that is using Google’s name to lour you in.
