Google’s CEO answered a 7-year-old’s application in an incredible way

A 7-year-old girl sent in a job application to Google, and received a signed response from CEO Sundar Pichai.

It’s a common lesson that putting yourself in front of decision makers at a company can increase the likelihood of you getting hired. But in today’s highly competitive job market, that task seems almost impossible, especially at heavy-hitting tech company.

Typically the earlier you start that process, the faster you can get a leg up on the competition. And that’s exactly what a brilliant young girl did, with results nothing sort of commendable.

Chloe Bridgewater penned a job application to the “google boss” describing why she is fit to work at the company.

Her father provided CNBC with the original letter:



The letter’s carefully crafted combination of desires and qualifications has already gotten her one step closer to working in Mountain View.

The application got the attention of Pichai, who sent Chloe a personalized response complete with a hand-signed signature.

Google confirmed with CNBC the letter is the real deal.

Now she just needs to send an application to Willy Wonka to fulfill her inspiring aspirations.
