Ask not what your current company can do for you, but what you can do for Google!

That’s the battle cry just sent out by Google’s top search engineer Matt Cutts. In a brazen attempt to convince departing Yahoo employees to consider the dark side of the force Google, Cutts has posted the following to his blog.

I was talking to an excellent new Googler that joined from Yahoo this week, and that reminded me that I meant to do this post a little while ago. So I’ll keep this post short and sweet: if you’re an excellent Yahoo engineer with solid experience in search, Google is hiring. If you want to apply for a Software Engineer (SWE) position in Mountain View, use this job page and the application will make it to the right recruiters. Thanks!

Clearly Google believes that enough Yahoo eggheads would prefer to work for Google, than Microsoft.

Never before has the "lesser of two evils" been more appropriate! 😉

    PS. I’m just kidding, both Google & MSFT would be great places to work. I’m just bitter ‘cos I’d never make it past the first interview! 😛
