Review: Google and Yahoo Hiring Booms

Those of you who look at our blog regularly know that we try to post interesting and “telling” job openings at Google, Yahoo, and elsewhere. Chris has already blogged about Google WILL hire programs to support Open Office despite reports to the contrary. That’s part of the story. This afternoon, Elinor Mills at talks about the hiring rampages at both Google and Yahoo in the article: Google hiring like it’s 1999.

In its most recent quarter, which ended Sept. 30, Google added 800 employees, bringing its global work force to 4,989. That’s more than triple the total from just two years ago.

Btw, Google employed 2668 as of Sept 30, 2004.

According to Hoover’s, Yahoo had more than 7600 employees in 2004, growing about 38%.
