Get the Google ‘Interview Massage’ May 20, 2007

Posted by Arun Rajagopal in Conversations.

Google OmanI picked this interesting story of a Google employee who was asked to conduct a ‘massage interview’ from the Official Google Blog today.

As Reza Behforooz, Massage expert and Software Engineer says:
Getting a massage at work is a favorite perk among Googlers. As with anyone we hire, our massage therapists have to go through an interview process…but the actual interviews are a little unique. We ask the therapists to do what they do best — give massages. And as Googlers, it is our duty to help with the hard task of receiving table or chair massages as part the interviews. Though we do have to write detailed feedback about the massage, just like any other interview, in this interview, all I had to do was close my eyes and relax. Who knew interviewing could be so easy! Read the full story.

The time’s not far when Google will start calling in people for interviews and interview them while they are on the massage table or chair. That will not only be so much fun and put interviewees at much ease, but could also result in bringing out new perspectives.

Like the interviewer goes: So, what change do you recommend to our online advertising initiatives in this market? Interviewee: OOH…AAH… OUCH. You were asking…???
