I just attempted to submit a resume' to and received a bounceback message indicating that the email address is not recognized. Does this mean that Google is no longer seeking trainers? If trainers are currently being solicited, please inform me as to how to submit my information.

Google has some real problems in the one-to-one contact department. That's what's gonna sink them trying to get enterprises to take them seriously. Business needs real tech support with live humans - not vague e-mail addresses that bounce suddenly with no explanation. YOu'll notice nobody from Google is responding to any of the questions here... that runs counter to "Web 2.0". If it were Dell or even Microsoft, someone would have sent you a "Tweet" a couple minutes after you asked the question. At Google, you email into a black hole and are expected to accept that as 'customer support'. It isn't.

Thank you for inquiring about our SketchUp trainer position. We currently do not have any openings. If you would like to send your resume to we will keep it on file and review it when a position becomes available.

Hi, I´m Aníbal, from Córdoba, Argentina.
I have been using SketchUp for about 3 years and during 2008 I teach the basic concepts of SketchUp to my partners in my Architecture School (Universidad Blas Pascal).
In 2009 my CAD teacher offers me the possibility to teach in depth SU to other students in this University.
Maybe if you are looking for people beyond US, I´ll be glad to have a job like this.

SnowTiger said...

I too would appreciate access to the "Canadian Contact Lead" please.
I am a Qualified Facilitator trained and certified by "Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing".
Furthermore, I have worked with SketchUp for around 6 years and SoftPlan (CAD) for 15 years. I also come from a family of Teachers.

Marc Levy said...

Is this position still available

Editor said...

I'm a graduate student of architecture at the University of Oregon. Graduating in June 2010.

I use SketchUp constantly - and already help my fellow students with the program.

Might be a great fit - but how do I apply? The email you have listed no longer is valid.
