  •  By "education" they mean CompSci degrees (0+ / 0-)

    When they talk about how Americans needs more education, they're not saying we're lacking in a classical education, which we are, and they're not saying we're lacking liberal-arts master's degrees, which we're not. They mean computer science degrees. I don't doubt that Google can't find enough engineers; I bet they'll only hire about the top 10% of the applicants they find which doesn't get them very many. For those of you reading who are unemployed and similarly steaming at having too much education that isn't getting you anywhere, if you're at all technically inclined I suggest either going back to school for a CS degree, or learning stuff like mySQL and Python and Perl on your own.
