Original post made by googlewatch, News on Mountain View's largest employer, on Feb 4, 2011

If you want a job at Google and haven't yet submitted your resume, you might want to get on that. The line to get an interview with the Mountain View-based online search goliath is very, very long.

According to a [Web Link recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle], the company received more than 75,000 applications last week alone, breaking the last company record, which was set in 2007.

Fortunately, for those who have applied, Google is planning to increase it's workforce significantly in 2011 -- saying last week that it planned to hire more than 6,000 workers this year, more than any other year in its history.
