This 7‑year-Old Applied For a Job in Google; Sun­dar Pichai Responds


When we were kids, we all had aspiration — sometimes imaginative too, like being Batman — but we all had them. Some of us wanted to be an astronaut, some doctors, others teachers, so on and so forth. But this young lady from UK wants to join Google and she wrote an application to the ‘Google Boss’ too.

Chloe Bridgewater, a seven-year-old, wrote a letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, stating that she’d want to join the California-based tech titan one day, apart from swimming in the Olympics and working in a chocolate factory.

To her surprise, she even received a response from Pichai, who advised her to ‘keep working hard and following your dreams’.

The Hereford resident was told by her father, Andy Bridgewater, that she’ll be allowed to sit on bean bags on her job at Google, go down slides as well as Go Kart.

“My dad told me to give you a 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,” Chloe wrote in her letter.

Getting a response from Pichai was something that the seven-year-old or her father would have least expected, but reportedly, the reply has bumped up her spirits quite a lot.

“I’m glad that you like computers and robots and hope that you will continue to learn about technology. I look forward to receiving your job application when you’re finished with school,” Sundar Pichai wrote in his reply.

“She is now even more eager to do well at school and work for Google. 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!,” Andy Bridgewater wrote.

An encouraging reply from one of the top honchos of the tech industry must surely be a welcome inspiration for a seven-year-old with big aspirations and here’s hoping she makes news again after joining Google a decade or more later.
