In the article, "Our googely advice to students: Major in Learning," Google talked about some of the requirements for being part of the Google organization. What I got out of it was that they need creative, hardworking employees with good leadership skills. These are some of the key qualities of any job but what makes this one unique is their promotion of competition. In most job environments competition is banned or discouraged in favor of teamwork but Googles' perspective on it is "more competition, better workers." They feel competition is how they propel innovation. I don't know if I agree with this completely but it makes some sense. Overall I think their perspective on the qualities of a good worker are genuinely unique to their own purpose.
