Google’s Nishar Heads to LinkedIn

Dipchand “Deep” Nishar is leaving Google to join social network LinkedIn. He will become Vice President of Products for the career and professional oriented social network.

While at Google, Nishar contributed to mobile efforts and most recently oversaw product development for Asia-Pacific.

Nishar is the latest of a string of Googlers leaving to join startups or build their own companies. While the current economy makes this a risky move, LinkedIn is one of the few startups bucking the trend. In fact, if you’re one of the many finding yourself “in between jobs” right now, LinkedIn is a great place to network.
