Position Vacant: Proofreader

Amusing letters published by ValleyWag, claimed to have been sent by Google recruitment staff:

Your name surfaced across my desk today as I noted I am searching for top talent in Corporate Communications here at Google. I am looking for people with a non traditional background in consulting and crisis management skills and also others in a direct Public Relations or Communications space

And another:

I am an onsite recruiter at Google focused on hiring software engineers and individual contributor. I wanted to drop you a note to see if you would consider an opportunity with Google? If you are open to that type of conversation…

One has to wonder if the claim about hiring the “best and brightest” is simply empty PR hype? Worse, perhaps these are the “best and the brightest”, in which case the planet is doomed.
