[UPDATE] Google Manila (Philippines) is Hiring

Google Manila, yes, Manila, yes, in the Philippines, is hiring. Click on the Map, and it will take you to the Google Map of Google Manila, hehehe. There's no news about it in any of the social media sites or news websites, so I'm guessing hey, maybe they published it in the newspapers. Cool, uber cool. Fantastic time too, as about a bajillion new graduates with the appropriate qualifications are graduating this March 2013.

Lucky bastards.

Anyway, they're looking into hiring Sales and Account Management Positions. Meaning practically, every graduate with the right skill and connections has a fighting chance of getting in.

Hey, 10 seconds ago, there was two positions, but, when I checked again, there was only one left.

CoolWhat do you do?
