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.
If you are unable to find a CS internship or a research project, do not dismay! You can still be productive and add bullets to your resume while at home this summer!
Consider taking on side projects. They keep you moving forward with what you already know while also pushing you to learn new skills and tackle problems on your own. Working on side projects is the perfect excuse to learn new and upcoming languages or frameworks and stay ahead of the curve.
We recommend working on open source projects that make you more marketable. Open source projects offer powerful preparation for the real world. By contributing to open source projects, you cultivate an awareness of how tools and languages piece together in a way that personal projects cannot. You learn to collaborate and project manage. You build on your communication skills, teamwork, and problem-solving. All skills that hiring manager look for.
What do we mean by open source projects:
Maybe your goal for the summer was to learn enough Python to land a great internship or job. Don’t stop at Python, look into learning the graphics processing library, the web frameworks, or the scientific modules. This is a great way to test the waters and see what you really enjoy doing. Take the summer to play and learn at your own pace and really hone in on what you are most interested in doing.
Polish up your technical skills by practicing some coding problems this summer. Google offers a Tech Dev Guide created specifically for students to explore and direct their learning. They also highly recommend Cracking the Coding Interview, LeetCode, and HackerRank to help get your coding skills into tip top shape!
Taking courses such as Algorithms and Data Structures is highly recommended to help with Google’s coding interviews. If you have not taken these courses at Midd, or just want a refresher, Stanford offers a free online Algorithms course that Google loves! For a deeper dive, Pluralsight offers a two part course that shows day to day applications of algorithms and data structures.
Google has plenty of resources to help you polish up your resume this summer. Check out their tips for how to apply to Google. It has everything you need to know from what they would like to see on your resume to how to prepare for interviews!
