It is not every day that you get to receive a letter from Google's CEO. Chloe Bridgewater, a 7-year-old girl living in Hereford, England, was ecstatic when she received a personal response to her job application at Google.
The girl received a letter straight from Google CEO Sundar Pichai saying that he is looking forward to receiving her job application once she's done with school.
In the letter, Pichai thanked the girl and hoped that she would continue her interest in computers and robots.
The CEO also gave advice on how to get hired by Google: "I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to do — from working at Google to swimming in the Olympics."
Google has since confirmed that the letters from the girl and Pichai were real.
It all started when Chloe had a career talk with her father Andy Bridgewater. The daughter asked Bridgewater about his job as a refrigerator parts sales manager. She also asked her father where his ideal place to work would be, aside from his current job.
Bridgewater replied, "Google would be a nice place to work," and then proceeded to tell his child of the many perks while working for Google and showed her photos of the Google campus in Silicon Valley, complete with bean bags, slides, and go-karts.
Chloe Bridgewater's Job Pitch To 'Google Boss'
Chloe was convinced she wanted to work there as well, so her father prodded her on to submit an application. Just like any other job applicant, she proceeded to tell her best qualities in the letter: "I am very good in class and am good at my spelling and my sums."
She also told Pichai that she likes computers, and that she has been practicing on her Amazon Kindle Fire tablet a lot.
And just in case her application pans out, Chloe has it all figured out. She also had other career plans, such as becoming a chocolate factory worker or an Olympic swimmer.
Bridgewater posted Pichai's letter on his LinkedIn page, where it became viral and has been liked more than 100,000 times. This could not have come at a better time since Chloe lost a great deal of confidence after getting involved in a car accident a couple of years ago. Bridgewater says that Pichai's letter gave the girl a boost of confidence, and that "she is now even more eager to do well at school and work for Google."
