Google Adwords Representative - Online Test
Over the past 8 months, Google has been holding tests to hire Google Adsense Representatives for its offices in Gurgaon, near New Delhi. Recently, a placement consultant called me about this test. She told me that they are paying real well at 'Google standards' ...blah blah and swayed me into taking the test. The job involves editing and proofreading the Google Adsense ads displayed by Google. Tired of my low paying media job and the lack of work, I thought I'd give it a try. I landed at the local cyber cafe where the test was being held with identification proof as asked. Nobody asked me for my ID and I started off with the test. Here is what the Google Adwords Representative test included -
Part 1 - was a multiple choice online test that involved correction of grammar and spelling. It comprised of 40 questions and had to be completed in one hours. Questions were about -
- the use of 'which' and 'than'
- the use of 'who' and 'whom'
- arranging parts of sentences in the right order.
- arranging sentences in the right order to make a paragraph
- comprehension - where you had to answer questions about given nonsensical paragraphs.
I completed this in around 30 minutes.
Part 2 - involved writing two 250 words paragraphs in an hour. The topics I got were -
- Describe a characteristic feature of your generation.
- A negative quality of your home town.
I completed this in around 1 hour ten minutes. I really had no idea that it would take this long, but the keyboard at the cyber cafe was at the level of my chin and just could not be moved lower ! Plus, I was given a real low chair. Ha Ha.
No idea if I will get the job as a Google Adwords Representative. They haven't called me as yet. None of the people I know who took the test ever got called for the interview either. Wonder, if they are actually hiring people or holding the tests as a legal requirement ? 6 months seems a pretty long time to hire a few staff !
Hope this post helps folks who have planned on taking the online test. Does anyone have any idea about this Google Adwords Representative job ?
