  2. Article excerpt on Google’s Eric Schmidt & J. Cohen on new book, “The New Digital Age” –
    http://mashable.com/2013/05/13/google-eric-schmidt-jared-cohen/

    “The speakers ended the evening on a bit of career advice, saying that the U.S. desperately needs engineers. So desperate, said Schmidt, that it doesn’t even matter if you’re even a good one or not. Become an engineer and you will never have trouble finding a job, he said.”

      1. Yeah, agree w/ you Marlon, for me, 10+ years working in data centers for the largest telecoms. I’ve interviewed w/ Google 3 times over the last 5 years for an SA/SRE position & I couldn’t understand what the Google interviewer was saying because he couldn’t speak English very well. High turnover w/ Google recruiters too. Now I’m 50 (a ‘health risk’) w/ (seemingly) no future just looking to “stick it to those big, greedy corps that have betrayed us all”!
