This past Wednesday, May 20 the Career Services Center led a group of twenty-two students to the Google campus in Mountain View, CA. The visit included a walking tour of the Google campus, a trip to the visitor’s center, lunch on campus, and a Q & A session with Googlers.
Students learned about the history of Google, its mission to “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful” and its culture which asks its employs to look for “Moonshoots” in their work, or ideas that reach for the moon. Students learned about internship and career opportunities at Google. Representatives from Sales, Human Resources, and Marketing departments also talked about their personal journey into the company, the variety of employment opportunities available, and the qualities of “googliness” that the company values. Overall it was an informative and inspiring visit!
Special thanks to our Jesse Haro, John Saenz, and Lezra Chenportillo for making this visit possible! Also thanks to Brian Jenney for helping to chaperone this trip, and Lavinia Zanassi, Jessica Lopez, and Stephen Fredricks for helping to connect students to this opportunity!
