Google Lays Off 100 Recruiters

Jan 15, 2009

Google is canning 100 recruiters. In a company blog post, Google wrote that it “is still hiring but at a reduced rate. Given the state of the economy, we recognized that we needed fewer people focused on hiring.”

The company also plans to close three engineering offices in in Austin, Texas; Trondheim, Norway; and Lulea, Sweden.

There are also reports that Google will terminate Google Catalog Search, user-generated Google Video; Google Notebook; Twitter rival Dodgeball, and a couple other applications.
