Jobs are necessary to live on and meet the expense (in a practical sense) while some of the jobs are highly interesting, inspiring and the performing the assigned responsibilities turn into their pleasure what they always want to execute.

I heard about Google jobs; that is merely not a job, it is a dream for many of the people. The job makes the life easier and comfortable and the authority cares about everything even the family members of the employees are under constant observation lest they are not feeling discomfort in the absence of the family member working with Google at its office. I heard about the job from one of my friends, employed at Google - the largest search engine for serving all sorts of your needs related to data, as a visual designer. All the members of the organisation live like a family and the outsiders cannot imagine about the inside working conditions and the intimacy and internal relations among the employees. My friend, Roland Smith, was happy when he was describing his working conditions to me at an informal meet. 

He is mostly a designer and makes numerous designs after instructions. The most relevant tasks include making iconography, changing colour, making space and texture, inspiring the end level users to interact with the colourful logos or products and making the navigation easier for the users. He is also assigned to make the products beautiful. His role begins from concept building to execution of the design and sometimes there is budgeted time to accomplish the job while sometimes he has option to do the works after his will. He is to work based on the user-end principles and sometimes has to work in a team of versatile designers. Behavior analysis is another important fact for him before starting the design and based on his former experience, he is a perfect weaver in making designs which people love using.   

To get the job of visual designer in Google, there are minimal and preferred qualifications which are required. Firstly, the applicant has to obtain a graduate degree over designing like visual communication, graphic design, industrial product design or firsthand experience for specific time period. Besides, the designs should be superb and easy understanding. Knowing some coding languages will also count. Familiarity with the contemporary photo editing platforms like Photoshop, Fireworks etc. would be advantageous for the candidate to strengthen his or her candidature. Sometimes, the candidate may require leading a team of diversified designers and motivating them into weaving the right design. Moreover, the candidate has to be problem solving and use of ready wit is a must for him or her to get the responsibilities done smoothly.     

In this current age, the number of unemployed youths is on the rise across the globe. A large portion of the youths are educated and have no jobs in their bags. Thus they are getting engaged into diversified position regardless of their preference as they need to live on. They lack the job satisfaction for numerous reasons and in the end of the day they drop out of their track. They cannot shine in their career. But in Google, an employee does not need to think of his or her career. They are entitled with numerous benefits which is a dream for many of the youths. The jobs are secure and stable. When the employees are at office, they even do not need to think of the other family members as Google takes care of the rest. So, they can work with as much concentration as they can. Therefore, I think this is a highly fascinating job.
