Jobs: New grad opportunities at Google

Google Student Blog
In September you read about Google’s technical internship opportunities for summer 2012. Today we’d like to talk a bit about the technical full-time opportunities available for students who are preparing to graduate (or have graduated) during the 2011-2012 academic year. All of these positions are listed on our student jobs site broken down by region, but today here we’re hoping to provide a more in-depth look at a few of the roles for which we’re recruiting in our North America offices:
