Google starts hiring again in China
Google has decided to go back on its original decision to abandon China and begin hiring workers in the country, offering them an interesting package with employee benefits included.
On the company's Chinese website, it has placed adverts for 30 positions, including software and technology engineers, sales staff, developers and managers.
Qu Xiaodong, the head of Chinese technologyconsultancy firm CCW Research, told the Daily Telegraph that the decision will provide a boost to Google's Chinese staff and will show them that the company is not closing down yet.
He continued: "Google may have seen Baidu's success in the wake of its withdrawal statement and decided that if it was going to stay in China, it needed to be more aggressive and win back the market share it has lost," he added.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed recently by the New York Times that Rupert Murdoch, the media baron, could be readying papers to sue Google in the coming weeks over the internet search company's indexing of newspaper content.
