Hello people ! I got a job at Yahoo !

30 replies
Hey Warriors,

Not sure if this is a right place to post but I've got great news to share: If my school approves my internship at Yahoo!, I'd be working with them in their Search Marketing department! I'm so excited to be working for one of the largest web companies in the World. What got me in I believe was partly due to my experience in SEM but I still had to take a mini test and go through an interview. I probably WOW-ed the interviewers, I think :rolleyes: As for pay wise, it's about double the minimum pay requirement set by my school... which is totallllly awesome

Will keep ya updated,

Johnson

    Maybe it was the fact you were banned for life on Google dude.

    One piece of advice Johnson, clean up the act.

    You shouldn't be on here talking about it.

    Go look at old posts that make you look "bad" and make them go away.

    Leave no tracks.

    Dude, you can go great places on this but I assure you, Yahoo would NOT want you on here bragging.

    Think Tay Think.

    Good going.

    Congratulations on the new gig - I used to work there. It's a cool company - free coffee and sodas and a gorgeous campus w/volley ball courts, fitness center etc.

    My colleague posted a question about php to an internal mailing list and the author of PHP (the guy who invented it!) responded with an answer! A lot of really smart people work there.

    Enjoy your time there. Check out the mailing list 'devel-random'.

    And like Harlan said - clean up your online background.

    They are very thorough in checking that stuff out (facebook, twitter, forum posts etc. - it's all researched - but you got the offer so I'm guessing their background check is complete).

      Hey Johnson,

      Congrats on your new job.

      Could I ask a favor?
      I lead a free job search skills training class in our city, and it may be a great help for the students if I were able to tell them about your interview at Yahoo.

      What questions did they ask? What was the testing like? What skill set did they expect from you? Was your interview a traditional one on one, or was it a group interview? You could post it here or email me at txrus99@gmail.com.

      Thanks,

      Mickey

    No big deal Johnson.

    I've got a close friend who is working full-time in Yahoo, the technical aspect of Yahoo. Which means he knows the inner works of Yahoo search rankings and marketing.

    Interested to know him?
