Google is holding a recruiting drive at Carniege Mellon University and it seems just the idea of a chance to work at Google is no longer enough to fill a college hall with potential interns and aspiring employees.
The Facebook info on the event reads "Want to know more about the new Google chrome book? Can't get enough Google swags? Want some tips on interviews with Google next week & some information about working in Google from the "insider" point of view? Or just want free pizza?"
They are even asking people to fill out a survey to be eligible for swag. Does Google not get enough applications? Or are Carniege Mellon students a premium?
One has to wonder what "Sponsored Stories" the attendees will end up in.
