A 7 year old girl who was seeking a job at Google, earned a response directly from the tech giant’s CEO. Andy Bridgewater said he and his 7 year old daughter were sitting at his desk early last week when she asked him what he did for a living.
“I work as a sales manager for a refrigeration company,” Bridgewater said, “which I assume is boring to a 7-year-old.”
Chloe Bridgewater asked where he would like to work to which Andy replied with Google. This inspired the daughter to want to work for the tech giant to so much that she submitted an application in the form of a letter to the business.
The letter, starts with “Dear Google Boss.” and reads as follows.
“My name is Chloe and when I am bigger I would like a job with Google,” the hand-scrawled letter said. “I also want to work in a chocolate factory and do swimming in the Olympics.”
She then mentions some of the job perks.
“My dad said I can sit on bean bags and go down slides and ride go-karts in a job in Google,” she wrote. “I like computers too and have a tablet I play games on.”
The ending doesn’t disappoint.
“My dad told me to give you a application to get a job in Google,” she wrote. “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.”
Four Days later, Bridgewater stated that Google CEO Sundar Pichai, responded with a letter himself.
“I’m glad that you like computers and robots, and hope that you will continue to learn about technology,” Pichai wrote. “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. I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school!”

The company did confirm that the letter was in fact genuine but did not comment as it was a personal matter rather than a corporate one.
