I just got this in the mail and invitation to apply to teach one day AdWords seminars. I am sure others have gotten them. Are you thinking of applying. They want a form completed, resume, and a 2 minute video.

They will pay but don't say what. Any ideas on that and whether it is worth the effort.

Why not ask them how much they would pay?

They say that they don't know that yet.

It seems this went out to several GAPs.

However, it also looks like AdWords sent it to the billing address/contact for the GAP program and not the actual GAP.

I received an email in December about becoming a Seminar Leader. The email (while vague) described a possible situation that sounded very good and was a good fit for what I am trying to do. I sent in my resume/video to Google before (what I was told) the January 15th deadline.

I have been using Adwords since 2002 and have been a GAP for over six months. In addition to buying online advertising, I have also planned, negotiated, and bought traditional media from national magazines and newspapers. Finally, I have taught one-day training sessions on graphic design software and a lecture course (on graphic design) at a local community college.

I mention this only because these were the requirements they listed.

Here is the whine/rant:

I waited to hear a response after the Jan 15th deadline, but did not hear anything.

Earlier this month I spoke at a large seminar (not SES) on Search Engine Marketing. A week before I was to speak, I sent an email to the Google Seminar Team inviting them to come see me speak (the seminar was in Las Vegas, just a short hop from the Googleplex).

The day before I spoke I received an email stating that I was "not a fit" for the AdWords Seminar Leader role. Note that they said "not a fit," interesting that I am "not a good fit" only "not a fit" (trying to be funny here).

I am bummed, I am not sure what they are looking for. If anyone has been accepted, good for you!
