Google to recruit through coding competitions

Google India has changed the way it recruits from engineering colleges, trashing paperbased tests in favour of Google Jams or coding competitions. Candidates will now have to crack coding puzzles online to clear the first few rounds of the placement tests at the coveted firm. Code jams are a popular method of hiring globally. Google too has conducted them in India, but only as part of its global recruitment process. "It has proved effective in candidate selection before the interview stage," says a company official who does not wish to be named.
