Interviewing for Google US from India

PayPal Helllooo!
Sep 30, 2018 16 Comments

I recently quit PayPal and moved to India(taking a break and not working anywhere). Recently a recruiter from Youtube contacted me for a role. I have scheduled a call next week and will let him know about it.

I was wondering if anyone interviewed successfully from India for roles in Google US.

    Just now finished talking to the recruiter. They said they will fly me in if I clear the phone screen which is awesome!

      Naa I'm just curious roughly how senior you have to be to execute something like this... People say this is theoretically possible, but this is the first time I'm seeing this in reality (except for 15+ yoe senior executives that is).

      Hope you do well and get the job of your choice man. Good luck!

      Make sure that you line up multiple interviews. Ideally 4-5 within 2 weeks. More if you can handle that.

    Thank you op...
    Your case is encouraging for some of us (me for sure) who would like to join new employer on receipt (with pp suspended) and don’t mind taking a break in case things don’t go as expected...

    Let us know how things work out in the end...

      Sure man! Will definitely update!

      Yeah I think changing on receipt is not an issue! You should go ahead! Unless you are in some shady consultancy non tech role, I don’t see an issue!

      Could be multiple scenarios.
      h1 expired and trump did not renew, etc.

      No, voluntarily quit! Have H-1 with an approved I-140. Didn’t have any issues with visa. I wanted to take a break. You cannot stay more than 60 days after you quit on H-1B.
