Today Jason Warner starts guest-blogging on Brazen Careerist as Google Guy.

I met Jason when he was the head of North American Recruiting for Starbucks, and he launched a blog meritocracy.net. Then I followed his switch from Starbucks to Google and we’ve been friends ever since.

I’m really excited that he’s blogging here because I have learned so much from conversations with him. Sometimes he’s a recruiter/philosophizer, and sometimes he’s a recruiter/comedian and sometimes he’s just the guy with the inside scoop. All versions of Jason are fun and interesting, and I’m sure you’ll like him as much as I do.
