Be BOLD Sofia Quinones


Why do I want to work for Google? Well the answer is simple— it's Google! Well, actually not exactly. Google is much more than just the best well known brand in the world, or the most innovative company in the world, but rather it's a company that unites our world together to make an impact in society and to be BOLD.

CoMpany overview

Brief History

So you are probably wondering when Google began? Well believe it or not, it's first name was actually BackRub. It was a search engine created by Larry Page and Sergery Page who met at Stanford in 1996. But, shortly after two more years, Google was first launched. Now the company has 10000+ employees and has a revenue of $10,000,000 billion per year— that's a lot of people and money, and it's still growing across the world.

Mission Statement

Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Google's Culture

"It’s really the people that make Google the kind of company it is. We hire people who are smart and determined, and we favor ability over experience. Although Googlers share common goals and visions for the company, we hail from all walks of life and speak dozens of languages, reflecting the global audience that we serve. And when not at work, Googlers pursue interests ranging from cycling to beekeeping, from frisbee to foxtrot."
"Our offices and cafes are designed to encourage interactions between Googlers within and across teams, and to spark conversation about work as well as play."

So I know I mentioned a lot about Google— a lot of fun perks and good stuff. But how do I fit in? Why would I love to be part of Google's Team? I want to share my unique interpersonal skills, my diverse cultural background, and my desire to make an impact in the world. It would a dream to work for one of the most creative and innovative companies in the world, and to make an impact in society.
