(Newser) – Love to doodle, Internet-style? Have we got the job for you. Google is searching for a full-time Google doodler. "First impressions matter," says Google in its ad for the position, referring to the behemoth search engine's cutting-edge Internet art (and likely a word to the wise for those sending in resumés). The job requires a "sense of humor, love of all things historical, and imaginative artistry."

Google's employee selection process is famously rigorous, and bound to be even more demanding for a showcase homepage doodler. No salary has been revealed. The firm's first doodle was created in 1998 to mark the Burning Man festival, and they've been increasingly frequent and more complicated ever since, notes the Telegraph. Now, as the Google ad encourages: "Go forth and doodle."

The less google an google services the better! because now Google is invading everyones privacy that uses Google or Google services which they started this March.Everything you do on Google or Google services is now being saved and kept by Google! That is why i decided not to use Google or their services anymore.It is one thing after another trying to take our privacy and freedom away.Now i can understand looking into muslim websites which promote hate ect.And terror.But all Americans! Google has used us to get where they want to get! to turn on us! sounds like some others over us right now too!

"First impressions matter" - that's why no one will ever buy Google TV again.
