@PedroGonzales - but we all know Google et al spies on all of us anyway, so why not applaud when they use their evil powers for good?

Sounds rather odd. As cool as this certainly is, the hiring process is already lengthy and convoluted enough. I can't help but think of all the people who presumably gave up just as much time taking that challenge only to receive no such followup... or people who did excellently on the challenge, sent in their resume, and got declined at that step because of what kind of degree they had, etc. (although, Google is one of the leaders in more open hiring practices). I can imagine a nightmare version of this perpetrated by a company that tries to mimic Google's idea and just makes something incredibly painful for everyone. A cool anecdotal story, but I sort of hopes it's not much more than that.

@Sunita - I agree, this has certainly been true in my experience. Our banner exployees have been the well rounded types while the specialists have faded in their usefullness.

@nasimson: true but the soft skills are tested first. Most companies don't need a person who had high programming skills. They need an all rounded person with ideas.

Re: That is the most unexpected
You raised a great point about the complexities that are involved to communicate or retrieve information about a skillset in its entirety. I feel that the complexities are due to the amount of information that can be added or extracted from a résumé. It is a problem that technology can solve and sites such as, LinkedIn, etc., has improved the process of communicating a person's experience. However, there is still a long way to go.
