Should keep you out of trouble for a while.
Ok, so that rant aside, if you did miss the WSJ version, you may wish to check out the NYT’s look at how Google is automating its hiring process using complex interview questions and algorithms.
The questions range from the age when applicants first got excited about computers to whether they have ever tutored or ever established a nonprofit organization.
