Hey, I just got an e-mail from Google that they have several job openings throughout the USA as well as internationally. See these links:
Mountain View, California openings.
Google also has positions in sales, marketing and product management.
Below are excerpts from their Greece position:

Our ideal candidate will have demonstrated leadership in general management, marketing, sales or business development for an internet/technology or advertising company, and have graduated at the top of their class from a leading graduate academic institution (MBA preferred).

Requirements and Qualifications:
5 to 10 years experience in a line management role (general management, sales, marketing, business development) for a high growth technology firm /entrepreneurial endeavor, or equivalent experience at the senior associate/engagement manager level at a leading consulting firm.

Work experience and keen understanding of the competitive landscape in the country required.
Strong entrepreneurial spirit and instinct for revenue-generating activities.

So! You going to go for it? Worst thing that could happen is you don't get the job.
Or perhaps the worst thing would be is you do get it than don't like it.
At least you would get one paycheck to find out...
