Subject: Google Job Posting?


Hello. I'm a recruiter from Google.  I am trying to get the word out to as
many skilled Python experts as possible about open Python related positions
at Google in either Mountain View, or Dublin, Ireland.  If there is anyway
that you can spread the word that we are seeking them, we would really
appreciate your help.  I've pasted two job descriptions below in which
Python experts with a networking background may qualify for.  I'm not sure
if you would consider posting these positions on your board.  If it's
possible I would greatly appreciate it.



This is such a great opportunity, and Google is seeking the very best
Engineers from around the world and I feel there must be dozens of Python
experts out there.  I'm hoping I can find some of them through networking
with you.   If you happen to know of anyone that may be interested, please
feel free to forward this email to them and have them contact me directly.
I hope you are not bothered by my networking attempt.  Or if by some streak
of fortune on my part, if you are interested and feel qualified, please let
me know.  J   Thank you for your consideration and time.
