I am fascinated with the Google Hiring Process. How many CEUs (Candidate Experience Units) does Google get for this one? Come up with a response to the scenario below – and you too could work on Google’s AdWords sales team:
Google’s policy is to not allow ads for tobacco products. An AdWords advertiser’s ad is reviewed and rejected for selling tobacco products. The advertiser writes the following email response:
Dear Google AdWords,
I am outraged by your decision! You allow pornography to be advertised on Google and not tobacco? Your policy is hypocritical, and you are practicing discrimination. My products are legal, and I have been selling tobacco products online for years. I demand you reconsider your decision and run my ad immediately!
a. Please discuss at least three reasons you believe Google would make the decision not to allow the advertisement of tobacco or tobacco products while allowing ads for pornography. These might not be what you tell the advertiser, but rather internal reasons for this policy.
b. Below, draft an email response you would send to the advertiser.
Easy right? Here are my 3:
1- Obviously Tobacco ads are not allowed because Google “Does No Evil”
2- Tobacco is known to be addictive and cause cancer
3- Porn is WAY too lucrative to turn away the ads 😉
