“Google boss” replies to 7-year-old asking for a job
Google CEO Sundar Pichai replied to 7-year-old Chloe Bridgewater, who wrote to him asking for a job. The little girl sent a letter to the “Google boss” after a talk with her father about cool jobs.
It all started a week ago, when Chole Bridgewater, a 7-year-old from Hereford, England, didn’t seem impressed with her dad’s job, as a refrigerator parts sales manager. She asked him what else he would have liked to do and the dad, Andy, answered that he would like to work in Sillicon Valley, for Google. The girl became curious about the IT giant and dad showed her photos of Google, of course, on Google.
So, Chloe decided it was never too early to secure her professional future and wrote a letter to the IT company’s CEO, asking for a job and presenting all her current assets.
“Dear Google boss”, the letter begins. Chloe reveals that her dad told her of the advantages of working for the Google: “My dad says I can sit in bean bags and go down slides and ride go karts in a job in Google.” She assures the “boss” that she is into computers and she is “very good in class” according to her teachers. She adds that she is determined to study to be worthy of a job in the Sillicon Valey’s headquarters and that she made this step, of writing a letter, counseled by her dad. “My dad told me to give you an application to get a job. […] I don’t know what one of them is, bt he said a letter will do for now.”
“Google boss” Sundar Pichai must have been impressed by the initiative, especially because he was put on the same level as Father Christmas, the only other recipient of a letter from Chloe. Pichai wrote back to the young girl, thanking her for her letter. He encouraged her to continue studying technology and added: “I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school! 🙂 “
Google has confirmed both letters are authentic.
