Google is cutting more jobs.

According to people familiar with the situation, the company announced on Wednesday that it would cut hundreds of jobs in its recruitment division. A spokesperson confirmed the information.

In January, the company laid off 12,000 employees, the most in the company’s history. The most recent round of layoffs affects only recruiters but affects hundreds of full-time jobs at the company.

The company’s hiring has slowed in recent months, reducing its need for recruiters.

“As we’ve said, we continue to invest in top engineering and technical talent while also meaningfully slowing the pace of our overall hiring,” a Google spokesperson, Courtenay Mencini, said in a statement. “As a result, the volume of requests for our recruiters has decreased.” We’ve made the difficult decision to reduce the size of our recruiting team in order to continue our important work to ensure we operate efficiently.

“We’re assisting everyone affected by a transition period, outplacement services, and severance as they seek new opportunities at Google and elsewhere.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Semafor reporter Louise Matsakis reported on the job cuts.

Several Google employees shared the news of the layoffs on LinkedIn shortly after they were informed.

“Dear friends and colleagues, more bad news from Google today.” “I was impacted, [laid off] in another Global round, and am open to new opportunities,” wrote an engineering recruiter in a blog post.

“Google Recruiting has been impacted by layoffs, yet again,” another employee wrote.
