In the ad, Microsoft touts its partnerships with Facebook, Viacom, and Dow Jones and suggests the fun of chasing Google.
"We have a long way to go," the ad states. "It will be an exciting
journey. Come join us. We have jobs in Mountain View, Redmond, and around the world."
I'll be curious to see how the hiring push pays off. On the one hand, it would seem like for a whole lot less than $40 billion, Microsoft should be able to go on a pretty significant hiring spree. At the same time, I've heard of a lot of people leaving Yahoo, but haven't heard of any big names joining Microsoft.
