You and Google

Google is looking for its next Noogler - someone who's good for the role, good for Google and good at lots of things.

Things move quickly around at Google. At Internet speed. That means it has to be nimble, both in how it works and how it hires. Google looks for people who are great at lots of things, love big challenges and welcome big changes. It can't have too many specialists in just one particular area. It's looking for people who are good for Google - and not just for right now, but for the long term.

This is the core of how it hires. Google's process is pretty basic; the path to getting hired usually involves a first conversation with a recruiter, a phone interview and an onsite interview at one of its offices. But there are a few things it's baked in along the way that make getting hired at Google a little different.

How Google Interview

Google is looking for smart, team-oriented people who can get things done. When you interview at Google, you'll likely interview with four or five Googlers. They're looking for four things:

Leadership

Google wants to know how you've flexed different muscles in different situations in order to mobilise a team. This might be by asserting a leadership role at work or with an organisation, or by helping a team succeed when you weren't officially appointed as the leader.

Role-Related Knowledge

Google is looking for people who have a variety of strengths and passions, not just isolated skill sets. It also wants to make sure that you have the experience and the background that will set you up for success in your role. For engineering candidates in particular, it'll be looking to check out your coding skills and technical areas of expertise.

How You Think

Google is less concerned about grades and transcripts and more interested in how you think. It's likely to ask you some role-related questions that provide insight into how you solve problems. Show how you would tackle the problem presented - don't get hung up on nailing the 'right' answer.

Googleyness

Google wants to get a feel for what makes you, well, you. It also wants to make sure that it's a place where you'll thrive, so it'll be looking for signs around your comfort with ambiguity, your bias to action and your collaborative nature.
