Job Applicants, Google AdSense Can't Be Used As a Job Reference

A person seeking new employment asked in a WebmasterWorld thread if he can use Google as a reference for his interviews. Why does he feel he might be able to use Google in this way? Well, he never really worked as a Google employee, but he did get checks from Google via their AdSense program.

AdSenseAdvisor, from Google said:

I love that AdSense has been your primary source of income. Sadly, I don't personally know enough about you or your work to provide you with a reference.

Yes, it doesn't work that way does it? How can Google vouch for someone that they do not directly manage?

Ironically, this is not the first time we covered this topic. We said it clear with Google AdSense Publishers Are Not Employed By Google over two years ago. You simply cannot put down Google on your resume, even if you made money with Google AdSense. That doesn't mean you cannot show interviewers how much you made and what tactics you deployed to make your sites successful.
