Many developers dream of landing a job at Google. Recruitment firm JobVine has produced an infographic that gives advice about how to make your dream a reality.

It's not surprising that so many developers want a job at Google that there are around 2,000 applicants per vacancy. Google has a really good reputation for perks such as free meals in its gourmet cafeteria, dry cleaners, gym facilities, pools, video game areas and for providing a motivating environment in which to write great code.

JobVine's infographic looks at Google's recruitment and interview processes and uncovers some interesting facts regarding the company's approach to attracting talent - including some of the questions asked during interviews. It also highlights the top salaries of Google employees and some of the crazy interview questions you can expect before getting hired.
