7-Year Old Girl Sends A Job Application To ‘Google Boss’ And Gets A Reply
Sundar Pichai recently received a job application from a 7-year old girl and what he did next is the sweetest thing that one could do to encourage the spirit of a kid.
Chloe Bridgewater, who resides in Hereford, England is obsessed with her gadgets. The 7-year old got to know about the cool work culture at Google, so she decided to apply for a job. She wrote the cutest ever job application addressed to Google CEO, Sundar Pichai.
In the letter, Chloe detailed her love for gadgets followed by how sitting on bean bags and going down the slides would be so much fun at work. She wrote in the letter, beginning with “Dear Google Boss”:
My name is Chloe, and I would like a job with Google. I also want to work in a chocolate factory and do swimming in the Olympics. My dad said I can sit on bean bags and go down slides and ride go-karts in a job in Google. My dad told me to give you an application to get a job in Google. I don’t really know what one of them is but he said a letter will do for now.
The 7-year old also wrote about her performance in the class and how she would be a perfect fit for the company. She concluded the application by writing,“Thank you for reading my letter. I have only ever sent one other, and that was to Father Christmas. Good bye” . You can read her entire letter here.
After receiving the letter, Pichai did what a good boss should do, he wrote a personal reply to Chloe encouraging her to keep following her dreams and join the company when she is done with schooling. Chloe’s father shared the letter on LinkedIn, which went viral.
Here’s the full response from Pichai:
Thank you so much for your letter. I’m glad that you like computers and robots, and hope that you will continue to learn about technology.
I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to – from working at Google to swimming at the Olympics.
I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school! 🙂
All the best to you and your family.
In a post on LinkedIn, Chloe’s father shared how encouraging the letter is for Chloe who got knocked down by a car, a few years ago.
Expressing his gratitude, Chloe’s father wrote on LinkedIn:
Can’t thank such a busy person enough to take time out to make a little girl’s dream become one step closer, although not sure she’s fully aware that it’ll take more than riding go karts and sleeping in pods to make it with Google!
With his reply, Pichai has set a good example for every kid who has aspirations for working at Google. We all look for feel-good stories and this one has certainly made the day brighter, right?
