Advice from Kenny Risner, a senior INTA major, currently interning with Google this fall:

1. First, as IAC students, own that fact! Google recruiters found it fascinating that I was a liberal arts student at an engineering school! The culture at Google is very similar. You will be surrounded by people who have much more technical backgrounds. However, my experience of constantly being surrounded by engineers at school helped me fit right in and pick up on the culture at Google.
2. The BOLD internship is an internship similar to what I am currently doing. When looking at applicants, staffing looks for applicants that have very unique and interesting experiences. Highlighting an experience in which you’ve made an impact or simply done something cool is important. Ultimately, if you can tie this experience back to Google ideals, your application will be much stronger. Do not be afraid to reach past normal academic experiences. When applying, I highlighted my experience of creating a club sport at Tech and they found that very interesting and different.
3. I have not had any experience with the full time positions, but I can imagine the process is very similar. If an interview is offered, I highly recommend that you become VERY familiar with Google products and Google in current news. Know your favorite Google products, what Google is currently working on, etc. Also, when submitting your resume, know it top to bottom. I was very surprised how in depth they went in questioning about my resume. When highlighting a work or leadership experience, know how you made an impact.
4. Finally, my biggest piece of advice is, if you do not get in the first time, do not be afraid to apply again! They find it encouraging to see return applicants!
If you have any more questions, please feel free to reach out to Kenny Risner directly.
