Read the letter a little girl sent to google asking for a job

A seven-year-old girl, who loves robots and computers, got a wonderful response when Google chief Sundar Pichai responded personally to her handwritten job application.

Chloe Bridgewater, from Hereford, sent the letter to the technology giant’s head offices in Silicon Valley in the US last Monday, saying: “My dad said I can sit on bean bags and go down slides and ride go karts in a job in google.”

Here’s the letter she sent:

In the letter, Chloe wrote about her skills and interest in working for the company one day, and highlighted her experience in tablet usage and robot games.

And she wrote: “My dad told me to give you a application to get a job in google. I don’t really know what one of them is but he said a letter would do for now.

“Thank you for reading my letter, I have only ever sent one other and that was to Father Christmas. Good bye,” she concluded.

Her father, Andy Bridgewater, 37, said she was “over the moon” when the head of the company responded just four days later, encouraging her to “keep working hard” and get in touch when she finishes school.

Andy, a sales manager, said he was working from home when Chloe asked him where he would really like to work.

“I said Google would be a nice place to work, then I told her about the bean bags and the driverless cars. She responded by saying she would like to work there.”

He told Chloe she should “get the ball rolling” and send Google an application.

“I had to explain to her what an application was,” he said.

In his reply to the primary school pupil, Pichai – one of the highest-paid chief executives in the world – told her: “I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to.

“I look forward to receiving your job application when you finish school.”

The letter went viral after Andy posted it online – gaining more than 10 million views, and prompting phone calls from Japan, China and the United States.
