This 7-year-old is inspiring AND adorable.
It takes guts to apply for a top job at any age: the whole process takes time, effort and gall.
But one little girl just schooled everyone in how to go the extra mile.
7-year-old Chloe Bridgewater didn’t even know how to write a job application when she decided to go after her dream job at Google.
The only letter she’d written before was “to Father Christmas”.
The passionate youngster, from Hereford, England, started off by getting straight to the point: “I would like a job with Google,” she wrote in a letter, made public by her father this week.
Bridgewater also made sure that her credentials shone through – she’s “very good in class” she explained in her letter to “Google boss”.
Importantly, Bridgewater also makes her passion for technology crystal clear, describing how much she likes computers and the tablet she plays robot games on at home.
And, like any Google applicant, part of the appeal is the business culture, she explained:
“My dad say I can sit on bean bags and go down slides and ride go karts in a job in google.”
Who doesn’t like slides?
If Chloe’s penmanship wasn’t heartwarming enough, you’ll be pleased to hear that Google CEO Sundar Pichai also actually took the time to reply.
“I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school! :)” he replied in a letter, shared by her dad on LinkedIn.
While anyone – aged 7, or older, would be stoked to hear from a Google CEO, we think it was sensible of Pitchai to acknowledge Bridgewater’s other aspirations.
Chloe doesn’t just want to work for Google, she also wants to be an Olympic swimmer – and to work in a chocolate factory.
We see no reason she can’t achieve all three.
