I finally heard back: Although they made me a job offer two years ago, this time around Google has decided not to hire me.
I am disappointed, but have peace that God knows best.
Update: Kay took us all out to Baskin & Robbins saying, “We need to celebrate the loss. Otherwise we won’t have enough celebrations.”
I am experiencing mild shock. I guess I reached a state of peace just in time!
Update 2: It seems Google is making some cuts and closing some offices, but trying to get affected employees relocated into positions on the main campus. That’s admirable, and it makes sense then that they’d clamp down on new hires. Sucks for me, though.
