Going with Google

A win-win is how two computer science and engineering students would characterize their interaction with recruiters from Google, which joined CAP this spring. "Google was my dream job," says Sagnik Nandy, who will start at the search-engine company in 2006 after finishing his Ph.D.

Also headed for Google, after picking up his B.S. in June, is Matt Moore. The 22-yearold past president of the VentureForth campus entrepreneurs' organization has serious 'Googly' [read: offbeat, freewheeling, innovative] credentials, as evidenced in the title of his personal blog: "The Matt Moore Blog for Kids Who Can't Lead Good."

Google sees the Jacobs School as a rich source of new blood and new ideas. "We just began our corporate relationship with UCSD and already we've seen some amazing candidates who rank with those from the very top schools," says Google's Bob Hancock. He and other Google recruiters will be back on campus next October.
