Google's site currently advertises 587 types of job openings.

SFG estimates that Google is hiring more than 10 new employees per day and notes that Google confirmed at the Web 2.0 conference two weeks ago that it had accelerated its hiring.The SFG report says that Google could add 700 to 800 new employees in 3Q and another 800 to 900 in 4Q.
