Kim, Robert, Andrew,
Thanks for your replies.
- Nobody (I know) has forwaded my CV to google [but they do have a
referral fee for staff]
- I *do* have a gmail account, never used it to send a CV
- Google seems interesting, given the right position/location I'd work
The mail address is valid and there's a person at the other end of it.
Not much else has happened.
Summary: Offer seems valid.
It's a very 'google' thing to do - use your own search engine to
