Last year in November Google launched its online sales and distribution office in DLF Cyber city in Gurgaon and now it seems that Google is aggressively expanding this office it is now recruiting quite heavily not only from Metros like Chennai and Delhi but also even from tier 2 cities and has just announced a visit to Lucknow in today's Accent. Google is not only trying to capture the growing Hindi market but is also using this center for outsourcing some of the work for foreign markets.
Google is bullish on India and is well known amongst the techies but since the kind of work it asks of its AdWords Representative is not technology specific it seems to be having a tough time attracting the right talent this is why it even started trying to promote its brand to attract good hires in India even through mall promotions like this promotion at Rajouri Garden in City Square Delhi (via GigaOm.)

Interestingly while i was visitng Gurgaon recently I met some of the Googlers who have joined this office and they were complaining that pay in the Google AdWords is not as high as what you expect of Google. Google is one of the top payers in the country for engineers however for AdWords representative the pay is pretty much in the call center range and the responsibilities quite mundane and include a very interesting clause
* Willingness to work with sensitive issues, including but not limited to:
o Adult content.
o Religious and philosophically sensitive issues.
o Alcohol, tobacco, weapons and other potentially offensive products.
which shows that this job is for US content since adult content ads cannot be displayed in India by Google due to our laws. Interestingly Google as always goes for multiple rounds 5-6 for selecting the candidate even for this post and if you intend to give this interview my suggestion is first look at the job profile here and also at some of the questions for its test here
