Google searches for Asian talent

Google is struggling to fill job openings in India, according to a story in the latest edition of BusinessWeek.

"Its Bangalore staff now totals 25, but it was hoping to have signed up at least 100 engineers by last December," the story states.

The search king's problem has to do with its notorious pickiness, as well as a "red-hot job market in Indian tech," according to the story.

Google is hiring in the U.S. as well as in India, Europe and Japan.

According to BusinessWeek, the top two finishers in a recent Google coding contest in India didn't come out of the country's vaunted institutes of technology. Instead, they hailed from schools in Singapore and Indonesia.
