Google is one of the fifth largest paying organisations in the United States. As for India, it is also one of the most sought-after companies, given its market base in the country. Getting a job in Google is coveted by everyone around the world and here are tips on how to do it with insights and tactics.

Great GPA Is Your Direct Entry Ticket

Like every other premium companies, Google, too, looks for great scores in the profile of candidates. Like how a candidate seeks Google with the hope of finding the best offer, Google, too, looks at the creamy layer for their academic achievements. So if you are eyeing for a job here, you better work hard as a student. If you are already a graduate, don't worry, we have tips to get you your dream job!

Be A Pro In One Programming Language

If you are extremely good at one particular programming language, you have high chances to accentuate it and draw the attention of the bigwig Google. Create a portfolio with your specialisation and adorn your resume with proof of your skill set. In fact, you need not even have a related educational background to become a Google employee if you actually possess excellent skills!

Garner Sufficient Experience

You might not directly land into a big tank and be a big fish. Getting into Google might not be a one-step process. But if you aspire to get there, you could spend some time gaining experience in the relevant field elsewhere. Do not underestimate the value of experience. If you are certain about your goal to reach Google, then do not mind slogging and working hard before that. If you are a student, you have an added advantage of applying for internships and learning the skills on the go. Even after an internship experience, consider gaining more experience through a full-time job.

Be Strong With Codes

If you are applying for an engineering job, your strength in coding and how you interpret it will definitely be tested. So understand the template of coding and know how to manage codes in any language. Your presence of mind and IQ will be tested based on this aspect.

Try Approaching Through Indirect Means

If you are reaching out to the employer directly, chances are that it could go unnoticed. Instead, keep vigil for internship opportunities within the company, use referrals or any other source to approach recruiters.

Look For Google Recruiters

Google recruiters are those who are a part of the recruiting panel. Try to find out the specific people who interview candidates and mail them your resume directly instead of sending it to a common mail ID or to the company HR. Not everyone would have taken efforts to figure out the appropriate person to mail their resume to. Your efforts have high chances of paying off.

Work On Open-source Projects

Even though you have your own projects and portfolio, more is always good. Attempt completing a lot of open-source projects that not only act as a practise means but also act as proof for your proficiency. When you work on the open-source codes that are released by high-end brands, some of them even provide you with a certificate of recognition that will be acknowledged when you apply for a job at Google.

Flaunt Your Passion And Efforts

After all, you are doing everything just to be with Google. Why not express your love for the employer? Stay updated with the A-Z of Google, from its inception to its products. Let them know how passionate you are about technology and the firm and give them a good reason to have you as a part of the organisation.
