Here’s How Google Knows in Less Than 5 Minutes if Someone Is a Great Leader


After years of study, Google uses a few simple questions to identify the company’s best leaders.

We tell students to look for an internship/job where they will find a good mentor and leader. That is sometimes hard to quantify, so we thought Google’s leadership questions may be a good place to start! You can tweak these questions to ask during your interview.

Since leadership is more art than science, how can you objectively determine if someone is a great leader? Google has spent considerable time and effort trying to answer this very question. It makes sense that one of the most analytical companies in the world puts some of its analytical horsepower into determining how great teams are built and led. Over time, the company identified the key behaviors of its best team managers.

How to Prepare Yourself Before the Start of an Internship

This is excerpted from from Penny Loretto’s article in the balance careers. Read the full article here.

One thing all students should consider before even starting their summer internship is “what do I need to do to become a successful intern?” Getting an internship is just the beginning, and it isn’t the most important part of the internship process. Sure it may have been tough finding an internship and getting an offer, but the truth is that the value of doing an internship is based mainly on how you decide to handle the internship based on what you have to offer. That’s right; the burden is on you to make the internship successful and to perhaps even turn your internship into a full-time job.

It’s not about the company telling you what to do; it’s about you showing your value through your own initiative, motivation, and personal and professional skill set. 

Tips:

  • Read important literature and trade magazines about the field
  • Take time to review the company’s website
  • Get yourself a mentor
