You Want a Job at Google? Take a Look at This

By Noemi Twigg | Small Business

There used to be a time when everyone venerated Google. These days, there are some who think Google is evil. There are some who hate it with a passion. And there are still some who look up to the Big G.

However, with all that we’ve heard and seen about the working conditions at Google, it is but understandable that many a young (or old, what’s age anyway?) online professional/IT pro/you-name-it wants to work there.
We’ve also seen and heard all sorts of “what it takes” articles – what it takes to get in at Google. Well, folks, if working for Google has always been a dream of yours, here’s an updated graphic on how to get a Google job.

It doesn’t exactly give you a step-by-step list – if you need that, then the chances are you’re never going to get in anyway – but it does provide some interesting points, which is summarized below:

  • 14% get a Google job without having gone to college
  • Google likes “emergent leadership”; basically that means you step up when needed, and you shut up when you’re not needed
  • Brain teasers are not that important anymore. See graphic why…
  • Google likes “T-shaped people”: people who are a master at one area, but also have other interests (read: have a life?)

What are your chances of getting a Google job?

Well, the company receives more than 2 million job applications every year. The stats show that 1 in 130 applicants actually get in – so there are your chances.

And in case you’re wondering about how long it will take…

You’ll go through an average of 5 interviews, which takes about an average of 37 days.

Here’s the infographic to give you more details. (Click to see the original size.)
