7-year-old writes to Google for seeking job, Sundar Pichai replies back
If Google is credited with being the best company in the world, it is not for nothing. A 7-year-old girl applied to work with Google. While Google didn't have a job for her, it didn't say an outright 'no' as well.

Chloe Bridgewater from UK wrote a job application letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai. What she did get in return was indeed a pleasant surprise. Pichai responded to the girl's letter.

Encouraging Chloe, Pichai told her to `keep working hard and follow her dreams' and to formally apply to Google when she's finished with school.

The hand-written letter that has now gone viral was directed to 'the Google Boss'. As per a report in Business Insider, Chloe asked her father which is the best place to work and he said Google. And when she learned that the office had bean bag chairs, go karts, and slides, she applied for the job.

Chloe, who also wants to work at a chocolate factory and swim at the Olympics, wrote that she liked computers, robots, and tablets, and was a good student in school.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai responded by thanking her and saying: "Thank you so much for your letter. I'm glad that you like robots and computers, and hope that you will continue to learn about technology. I think that if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything that you set your mind to - from working at Google to swimming in the Olympics. I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school. All the best to you and your family," he wrote.

Choloe's father shared Pichai's response on LinkedIn, and said that "it's a much-needed confidence booster for Chloe, who was knocked down by a car years ago." He also said that he would encourage his daughter to focus on her studies and develop her skills to fulfill her goal of working at Google in the future.
