We all have dreams, aspirations and aims to accomplish in our childhood. But sometimes we dream big, and such is the dream of a 7-year-old British girl. Chloe Bridgewater, a 7-year-old girl from the UK, wrote a letter to the CEO of Google and asked for a job.
Andy Bridgwater, Chloe’s father wrote on LinkedIn:
“After seeing images of Google offices with their bean bags, go-karts and slides my 7-year-old daughter decided to write to Google to see if they would give her a job”.
Chloe started her letter with “Dear Google Boss”. She wrote in the letter that she wanted to swim in the Olympics and also told about her interest in computers and in robots. Like a very skilled job seeker, she kept her plus points and also told how smart she was. In her letter, she wrote:
Dear Google Boss,
My name is Chloe and when I am bigger I would like a job with google. I also want to work in a chocolate factory and do swimming in the Olympics, I go swimming on Saturday and a Tuesday. My dad said I can sit on bean bags and go down slides and ride go-karts in a job in google. I like computers too and have a tablet I play games on. My dad gave me a game where I have to move a robot up and down squares, he said it will be good for me to learn about computers. My dad said he will get me a computer one day. I am 7 years old and my teachers tell my mom and dad I am very good in class and am good at my spelling and reading and my sums. My dad told me if I carry on being good and learning then one day I will be able to have a job at google. My sister Hollie is also very clever but she likes doll and dressing up, she is 5. My dad told me to give you an application to get a job in google. I don’t really know what one of them is but he said a letter will do for now Thank you for reading my letter, I have only ever sent one other and that was to Father Christmas. Goodbye.

Chloe’s handwritten job application:
She was much interested in acquiring a job at Google because she knew that at Google she can sit on bean bags, enjoy on slides, and enjoy go karting.
Even after being very busy and being engaged in heavy work, Google boss Sundar Pichai found out time to reply Chloe. In a reply to the very cute letter written by Chloe, Mr. CEO praised her knowledge and encouraged her to be interested in computers. He also told her to send a job application after her schooling is completed.Pichai’s wrote words of encouragement in his letter:
“I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to – from working at Google to swimming in the Olympics.”
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.
Sundar Pichai’s replied to the 7-year-old techie girl in a very cute way:

So folks, if you want a job at Google and your application is rejected then you can write a letter to the CEO. If you are lucky enough, you may get a reply from him 🙂
