Introduction

In this article, we will discuss the job opportunities to grab at Google. We will also discuss the eligibility criteria, the selection process, the skill sets that will help you in grabbing this dream job. We have also included some resources that will help you in your journey.

So, let’s get started: 

About Google

Google is an American multinational corporation that specialises in search engines, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. It started out as an internet search company and has since grown to cover over 50 different Internet services. Google not only provides the best services, but it also motivates and retains its employees, resulting in a healthy work environment.

Types of Jobs at Google

Google primarily hires in the following three fields:

Engineering: These are the technical roles that includes 

  1. Software Engineering, 
  2. Application Development,
  3. Product Management, etc.

Business: These are the non-technical jobs that includes

  1. Quantitative Business Analysis,
  2. Business Operations Management,
  3. Sales Strategy, etc.

Design: These are the roles that includes

  1. UI/UX Designer,
  2. UX Writer,
  3. Visual Designer,
  4. UX Researcher, etc.

 

Ways to Apply for Job at Google

  1. Via Google Careers: Jobs at Google can be applied for directly on the Google website. It's simple: 
    Select your preferred field => Enter your location => select the skills and experience that are relevant to the job you're searching for. 
    All you have to do is apply, and Google will sort jobs based on your choices.
     
  2. Referrals: Use your connections to get a foot in the door and expedite your application if you know someone who works at Google. You may also use LinkedIn to contact with employees and ask them to refer you for a job. 
     
  3. Campus Placements: For college placement programmes, Google visits a chosen few colleges/universities such as IIT, NIT, DTU, and others.
     
  4. APAC Test: Throughout the year, Google hosts Kick Start, a coding competition available to programmers in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) area. Those interested can sign up for the competition and compete in any of the three three-hour rounds. Top competitors may be invited to Google for an interview for a technical position.

Selection Process

In most cases, the full procedure takes around six weeks. Needless to say, Google's hiring process is incredibly thorough in order to ensure that the recruiters hire the best of the best. Reviewers are more interested in the candidate than the application, so you might get a call about a job you didn't apply for if they think you'd be better qualified for it. Google conducts a total of 5 interviews after an initial assessment of the application.

 

  • Telephonic interview
    If the recruiter likes your application for a position, you'll be invited to a Google telephonic/Hangout interview. The purpose of this interview is to assess your role-related knowledge. 

 

  • On-site interviews
    Google conducts four more video or in-office interviews with various Googlers once the initial round of interviews is completed. Each round of interviews lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Don't worry, Google will cover all transportation and lodging expenses. For assistive technology, you can also contact Google's employment team. 
    General cognitive ability, leadership, role-related knowledge, and "Googleyness," or one's capacity to apply one's individuality and response to ambiguity, are all included in Google interview questions. 
    Recruiters at Google typically pose open-ended questions with no single acceptable response, allowing candidates to draw on their own experiences. Questions about coding and algorithms will be the most common in technical professions. You'll essentially have to think aloud about how you'd address a certain technological problem.
