On December 19, the Sme daily published a front-page story about Google and its inability to open a branch in Slovakia.

As well as the issue of Slovakia being too small a market, the reason is a lack of qualified personnel. Google’s selection process is extremely rigorous. An interview consists of nine rounds and lasts half a year.

Having no branch is the reason why Google has not launched all its services in Slovakia, such as Google News. SITA
