    You would want to be earning about £22,000 to £30,000 a year here if you worked for Google, and upwards of £40,000 if you were in a high-powered job...

    So £22,000, assuming thats the base rate you'd want, is:
    $38,215.56

    So ask for a $40,000 a year job and you'll be earning about £22,900 / £23,000 a year in British currency terms, which is an OK wage

    With respect junior sys admins in London would earn 35k+ UKP , I know I did when I was younger

    Arunan - No they didn't say now (haven't heard from them yet after sending him my resume to look over - to figure out what a good position would be). I meant, being my luck (with nice paying jobs in the past), they would say no to hiring me.

    HellSatan - Thanks for the tips

    Right now, my dear family of 4 is surviving off of less than $24k/year (£13,815/year). I'm tired not having money when we need it (although, tax refund check time is a great time for us here - nothing like a $7k check).

    It would be nice having 100% of insurance premiums paid for (Google pays 100%). And finally getting to see a doctor when I need it... instead of when we have money to pay for it.

    *sigh*
    /me starts to daydream

    LOL

    My luck, they'd say no anyways

    After being dumped (they decided to hire someone else - even though they offered me a job) from a possible $50k/year job in January/February of this year, I don't keep my hopes high anymore when it comes to getting a decent job. One of those things, I guess...

    Go for the gusto! What's the worst that would happen? They say no?

    Well less than $12k/year is the average minimum wage here in the states unfortunately. Even with 2 ppl working minimum wage, its hard to make ends meet.

    I'm not going for CTO - I would just like to not have to worry about having enough money for diapers. lol

    There are TONS of positions that are available.

    I hope I wouldn't have to come out to meet them -- even the closest office in Atlanta, is a good 8 hour drive away (on a good day). Even worse, going out to California for an interview, unless it was on their own expense... otherwise, I couldn't do it. I'm not made out of money (maybe someday that will come).

    If I get the position, I'll put in good words for everyone If you get the job, and stay for over 60 days, I'd get a $2000 referral bonus LOL

    I hear it's extremely difficult to get into Google.

    I saw a special on TV, and one guy applied at Google, and he was asked to come back for an interview before he got the job...He had to go through 14 interviews before he got the job.

    They weed out all the "bad" people, and stick to the best of the best.

    Nonsense - unless the job you are going for is CTO.

    I told him I wasn't entirely sure about salary requirements - it would depend on where the position was located, and what exactly it was. Itold him for sure, over $30,000/year (that's a good number, right?).
    30k US is probably just about minimum wage in the UK

    Its an easy mistake - could've been typing fast - I've done it before (I'm sure others here have typed too fast and made a mistake)..

    It was actually an email originating from Google (checked the header), and I called his office number, and its a number belonging to Google.

    I don't have any doubts.

    He said he would call me back this afternoon.

    Tonya,

    I was going through Dice and found your resume. I wanted to know if you we're still looking and if you would be open to exploring opportunities here at Google? Please give me a call or shoot me an e-mail to discuss. Have a great day!
    If that person really wrote "if you we're", I'd have my doubts if that is really Google who is knocking on my door.
