Google jobs in Australia, and a Bachelor of Arts helps?

June 8, 2006 — 5 Comments

Google has an interesting variety of jobs on offer in it’s Australian office in Sydney (bit to far for me to commute 🙂 ), but what I do find interesting is that the requirements for most of them are either a Bachelor of Science, or a Bachelor of Arts….now I’m not going to attack anyone with a BA, but how in the world is a BA going to help Google if you studied Philosophy or Modern Art? Apparently a B.Business or B. Commerce doesn’t cut it at Google, after all, why would you want to have knowledge of business when your knowledge of Architecture, Ancient History, Drama, or even Peace and Conflict (see the UQ BA program here) makes you so much better suited to working for Google!
