Google has announced a major change in its student work life plans, which are now being rolled out across the globe.
The company is changing the way it works with schools in a bid to make it easier for students to transition to the job market.
It’s not the first time Google has done this.
In January, the company changed the way its workforce was recruited and fired, allowing students to stay on as full-time employees for the rest of their lives.
This week, Google is expanding its efforts with the new changes.
It has announced it will hire 8,000 full- and part-time positions to replace the 1,400 it had previously planned to cut.
These changes are a significant departure from the typical Google workplace, where full-timers tend to be in a more remote and highly regulated position, while part-timing is common.
Students and their families have been left out of the conversation, as Google has been keeping some jobs as part of its “digital apprenticeship”.
Google is offering its students up to a year of free work experience with a variety of companies, including tech giants, healthcare firms and universities.
As well as being a career path, it’s also a way to keep a family in the loop on what the company is doing in the world.
The announcement comes as Google continues to focus on a new “digital empire”, the company’s latest initiative being to set up a global headquarters.
This is in contrast to the company that grew up in the US, and is now based in a sprawling office in Singapore.
The US was a major hub for the internet during the golden age of the web in the 1990s, but as Google grew its presence in the country, it was unable to compete.
Google is aiming to expand this empire with the launch of the Digital Enclave, which will house offices in Shanghai, London and Sydney.
This marks the first such expansion to its US office, but it’s not just the first expansion to Australia.
Google has been experimenting with building up its offices in Asia for years, and this will be the first in Australia.
It will be based in Hong Kong, where it will be able to bring more than 20,000 staff into its offices.
Google says it will make its first overseas expansion in 2018.
The company has previously announced plans to open its own offices in India, and plans to hire around 5,000 people in India by 2020.
Google also announced a number of new initiatives last year, including its plans to roll out more data centres in Europe.
These moves are part of a broader strategy to diversify its businesses.
In March, Google confirmed that it had sold its technology business to US-based company VMware.
This means it will not need to spend as much on marketing, but will have more flexibility in its work practices.
