Google has cooked up an interesting new strategy to lure talent in to its university recruitment events: talking to students about cryptocurrency and blockchain.

The search engine titan will be hosting a talk on the “Fundamentals and Some Recent Innovations in Crypto-Currencies” at the Polytechnic University of Milan in Italy.

The lecture is scheduled to take place on March 8 and will preface the company’s two-day recruitment event, where Googlers will share details about the company and its hiring process.

We spoke with representatives of the Polytechnic University of Milan who confirmed to TNW that the event is indeed official and organized by Google.

“Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, Litecoin… Many crypto-currencies have been in the news lately and most people know they can [be] purchased as an asset or exchanged as currency,” the description for the talk reads.

“Less well known is how they really work.”
