PERSONAL STATEMENT

I have been reading business and financial news from several authoritative journals for some time and I have come to notice that job requirements have greatly changed with the changing market trends. Many employers are no longer looking for people with good education alone; they are actually interested in people who have specialized in management or those who have done management-related courses.

GOOGLE ADVERTISING

Google was launched in 1997 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin after a series of trials and flaws. Since then it has developed in leaps and bounds to become the world’s leading internet search engine. Apart from being a leading search engine, it offers advertising services. Its advertising is so profitable; in 2006 alone its gross advertising revenues were $2.4 billion prompting The Economist to refer to it as “the world’s most valuable online advertising agency disguised as a search engine” (Moon, 2007, p. 1-2). Prior to invention of Google, internet search was not as popular and profitable; the search options were limited and could often offer meaningless results. In 1999, Page and Brin managed to secure funding from Sequoia Capital and Kleiner Perkins- the two leading venture capital firms in Silicon Valley, worthy $25 million that enabled them to make invest in both the search and advertisement technology. As a result of this investment, Google went from being unprofitable in 2000 to posting $6 billion in advertising revenue in 2005. To further demonstrate its growth, eight years after its launch, its work force had increased to 6,800 and was one of the five internet’s most popular websites with estimated 380 million users each month (p.3).
