Tips for Securing an Internship at Google

An internship at Google is something many people apply for and something that very few actually manage to get. Google is renowned world-wide for how they treat their employees, for their employee-friendly facilities and unique methods of fostering workplace teamwork. The salary isn’t bad either. Google accepts student interns from many disciplines, be it Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Advanced Mathematics, Physics and a considerable number of other subjects. Students who have any amount of experience in multiple fields are recommended to apply because of the diverse way Google operates.

At a Google internship, you’ll learn how one of the largest companies in the world operates. You’ll be expected to perform for at least three months’ worth of full-time work.

Needless to say, Google internships are not the easiest things in the world to land. There’s a few simple things that you can do in order to improve your chances that you’ll get one if you can successfully make it to the interview stage.Remember to be confident above all else. Don’t ever panic. One of the people who interviews interns as his job posted that he likes to ask questions to potential interns simply to see if they’ll get nervous or otherwise “freak out.” In order to understand why this happens, you must first know that Google has a very high turn away rate and an even higher “false negative” rate.

Thus, the need for confidence arises. If you’ve made it to the interview portion of trying to get an internship with Google, you’re likely qualified. If you get asked a math question or something that you might not have the slightest clue about, try to answer it anyway. If you don’t know what the answer is, talk about how good you are at learning what’s required for the job and then talk about your grades if the question applies to a subject. If you’re in an interview for an internship at Google, and this can’t be said enough, you’re likely more than qualified already because you’ve got your foot in the door. So, all you need to do is prove it.

I’m doing an internship, so I’m not getting paid. But the experience of meeting artists and working with record companies is priceless.

There are also two things that you never want to do: Never tell the interviewer what is important for their company and never tell the person interviewing you how to conduct the process. Those are two marks that will instantly earn you strikes. The person interviewing you already works for the company and furthermore, unless they ask you for your opinion, they already know what their company needs. It makes sense when you think about it, but you wouldn’t believe how many people make these mistakes in an interview.

The only other real big thing you need to make sure you’re able to answer is a few questions about how data structures and such work. If “Computer Science” is on your resume, you’ll likely be expected to know about any number of general theories. Just knowing general theories is generally enough to get you by with an interviewer. The last word of wisdom is that if you fail and get turned down for your Google internship position, don’t feel discouraged. Re-apply in six months and try again because you may have just gotten an interviewer that didn’t like you or you may have been having a bad day.

How to Fight Uncertainty in the Job Market

A job search can absolutely destroy self-confidence when doors seem to be closing everywhere you turn. You begin to feel uncertainty creep in, but it is something that you must fight. The job market is a tough place to be because there are only a few jobs but hundreds of applicants. There are things that you can do to fight uncertainty in order to continue the job search for the perfect position. So, what to do when feeling uncertain?

Renew Stamina

It takes a lot of stamina to hunt for a job. Take a breath every now and then to assure that you will not become too absorbed in the search. When people absorb themselves so much into one thing, it can overtake the senses and impair judgment. Search as much as possible, but do not apply to every available job if it is likely something that you do not want to do. Search for a new job every other day instead of everyday to take a breather in between. This helps you stay far more focused on things and keeps uncertainty from creeping into the scenario.

Preparedness

Prepare each day for the job search. Plan activities the night before so that it does not become too overwhelming. For instance, decide the night before whether you will search for jobs online or visit different places of business to submit applications. Take a day or two to look over the resume to make certain everything is in order. The resume is the first impression that many places of employment have of potential employees. Prepare well for interviews as well. All of these activities will help ease the uncertainty of job searching.

Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain!

Louis Tomlinson

Perspective

Keep everything in perspective. There are only so many things that you can do in order to get the job. Once it is out of your control it is time to let go and relax. It is alright to contact companies where you have submitted resumes and applications. In fact, that is encouraged. What you should not do is worry obsessively over whether you got the job. Never put all your eggs in one basket. It is rare that a job is captured when only submitting one application or resume. Do not wait for a call from one place. Submit many applications and resumes so the choices are varied. Waiting on one particular place to contact you sets yourself up for a fight with uncertainty.

Insecurities are readily available during a job search. There are many “what if’s” that you can ask yourself. Do not overburden your senses to the point that you cannot discern from what is and what is not in your control. Companies that are looking for employees have a difficult job because they are choosing from the most elite candidates available. They will hire someone for the position. Since they have so many choices, there is a huge chance that there will be some jobs you will not get. That is when it is time to dig in your heels and become more determined.

Negligence: The Most Annoying Quality of a Worker

How to Spot Negligence Before You Hire

If there is one worker trait employers find most annoying, it’s negligence. This is especially frustrating when instructions from management are clear and concise and worker negligence still occurs. However, it is possible to detect negligence before a worker is hired. This is done by keen observation during the initial interview. Study the causes of negligence. It is usually found to be the result of lack of attention, focus on the task at hand or disorganization. Take note in an interview of how organized the job applicant’s responses to questions are and how focused his or her questions may be. Also, study attention span and focus which should lead to the desired result of a successful interview for the job applicant and business interviewer.

Negligence in The Workplace

Negligence in the workplace can have serious consequences with regard to liability. Where negligence prevails among workers, defective products or services may result. An employer understands his responsibility to maintain safety compliance for the business facility, workers and customers. The weight of this responsibility depends on reliability of staff. Then, there’s the relationship between negligence and financial loss. The higher the levels of negligence among workers, the higher the levels of financial loss will be. This is a major issue for businesses of any size.

Create A Company Policy and Procedures Guide

There are several ways to reduce negligence among workers. The first is to provide an easily accessible, documented company policy guide that outlines in detail the procedural responsibility of staff. A policy and procedure guide protects workers. It also avoids potential legal difficulties if a negligent worker must be fired for failure to comply with company policy or procedures. Be sure to update a policy and procedure guide annually. When equipment or facility logistics change, procedures also change, and the policy and procedures guide should be updated to reflect these changes.

Success produces confidence; confidence relaxes industry, and negligence ruins the reputation which accuracy had raised.

Ben Jonson

A Negligence Containment Plan

Another method to reduce negligence is to establish a negligence containment plan. A negligence containment plan contains guidelines on the company’s management structure as well as helping to alleviate potential negligence in specific areas of the business. By making the sequence of reporting among managers, workers and executive staff clear, workers can rely on easier access to guidance if or when a problem develops. Regular meetings and discussions between workers and their immediate supervisors help spot problems before they occur. Supervisory or management staff can also determine where negligence is occurring among workers with frequency.

Emphasizing Quality          

When a business invests time and money into programs that advance levels of quality in services or products, workers benefit from such programs. Quality assurance/control programs are important for all workers on staff in order to raise their awareness of the importance of quality. These programs also focus on the overall effect of maintaining a high level of quality on business. One or two quality control programs can result in savings while reducing negligence. Decrease negligence among workers by increasing quality levels.
