IN THIS SUMMARY

Many recent college graduates dream of the opportunity to work at a top tech company. But relatively few make the cut and get hired by firms like Apple, Microsoft, or Google. In The Google Resume, author Gayle Laakmann McDowell takes readers behind the scenes of tech recruitment and explains what it takes to stand out from the pack. A former Google employee who served on the company’s hiring committee, she offers concrete suggestions for every step of the process, from getting in the door to negotiating an offer. Most importantly, readers learn that they have the power to increase their odds of success. Of course, luck and connections help; but preparation and perseverance are equally important.
