Dear JobsBlog: I am about to graduate and I plan to work in search. As a recruiter, could you please tell me why I should consider Bing over the traditional, obvious choice of Google?
-Miner of Data
If you want to work on state of the art search – whether it’s image, video, relevance, shopping or more – and you want to apply creative and innovative parts of yourself to your work, Bing is the clear choice. We have made search beautiful and useful.
We have also taken the time to listen to our customers and incorporate video, images, shopping, travel, information and shortcuts into our search engine results over the years. Something the ‘ten blue links’ didn’t have.
Let me give you a bit more detail… here are my “Top Three Reasons to Work for Bing.”
1) Bing is for doing
I can’t live without Bing Mobile on my phone. While on a recent vacation in Orlando, someone in my family desperately needed to find an item at Whole Foods. I simply spoke my search term into Bing Mobile, up came the Search Engine Results Page (SERP), immediate directions from my current location and I was there in minutes.
Bing is for doing: for me and – most importantly in that case – for my family. When you’re a mom, you have to deliver. And we work every day to make Bing a more useful tool for people around the world.
While those other guys have scale too, we have competitive reach and manage it in different ways. With the huge scale of sites, data, images, videos, shopping items, etc., there are always interesting challenge spaces for new employees on team. We want you to continue to find innovative ways to deliver requested content in the most user-friendly, fastest-time possible.
3) Microsoft is a great place to work
