Google confirmed that it has been cutting contractors and now it's paring back its army of recruiters.

In a blog post, Google said it "is still hiring at a reduced rate."

The company's first step was to wind down external contracts with contractors. "We have with great regret decided that we need to go further and reduce the overall size of our recruiting organization by approximately 100 positions," said Laszlo Bock, vice president of people operations at Google.

Update: Google is also moving a few engineers around--if they choose to relocate--in an effort to create smaller, more effective teams.

    LOL! I hate to say I told you so but....


    I TOLD YOU SO!!

    Didn't I say Google would have layoffs soon? Why yes I did! And now they are. Google has been on a downward spiral for quite some time. You know with them just sitting around playing with office toys does this really surprise anyone? Should have done more work fellas.
