  • Google will lay off 100 internal recruiters and shift to fewer sites.

    Google Inc. plans to lay off 100 internal recruiters and is closing engineering offices in Texas, Norway and Sweden as it tries to cope with the global economic downturn. The company is still hiring but at a reduced rate, it said in October during its most recent quarterly earnings call. Given the state of the economy, Google recognized that it needs fewer peopleto do the hiring, Vice President of People Operations Laszlo Block wrote in a post on the company’s official blog on Wednesday.” It is a big mistake to think that staff are only approached by unscrupulous headhunters”, commented David Smith of Recruiterblog. ” All the big corporates in North America  and increasingly in Europe have big teams of internal recruiters who are much more likely to be making that call”.
