Google has offices all over the world. That’s over 70 offices in 50 countries. Wow. Talk about global.So chances are, no matter where you live, you can snag one of Google jobs.
Right. Easier said than done. Out of over three million job applications, only about 7,000 people get one of the coveted Google jobs. That’s an insane competition.
But don’t let it stop you.
Check out these 5 simple steps to get you started.
It sounds simple, but it’s important.
Know what you want.
Which one of the many Google careers would make you happiest? Which one will make you the most money? And which Google jobs will build you the most wealth? What are the highest paying Google jobs and entry-level jobs? (We’ll talk about incredible wealth-building opportunities at Google later)

That’s pretty typical, so all you need to do is to study for each step.
Study on how to apply. Study on how to prepare for an interview. And study how to negotiate salary (that’s part of the decision step).
Know someone who works at Google? Great!
Ask them what it takes to get hired. Be specific. Ask about the jobs you want—be it a software engineer or a project manager or a marketing manager. And ask about interview questions, so you can prepare.
Don’t know anyone who works at Google? Not to worry.
Go to your LinkedIn profile and search for your connections. If there really isn’t anyone at all, connect to someone on LinkedIn and then ask for help.
When looking for a job at a giant like Google, connections are everything. In other words, you get to know people, and people will help you.
Think of an internship as the first step to getting hired.
It’s cheaper for Google to hire someone they’ve already invested in.
Better yet, volunteer. Go to your local Google events and volunteer your help. Meet people. Talk to them. Chances are, you’ll meet a recruiter and learn how to land an internship. Or even a job. You may even get a chance to know how to craft a winning resume for applying for Google jobs.

In Google’s words, “Google is and always will be an engineering company that thinks big and takes risks.”Note the words “engineering company.”

Now, let’s talk about Google’s hiring process.
As mentioned above, Google hires in three steps:
It comes down to this.
The more research you do, the better your chances of getting hired by Google.
In Google’s words, they’re looking for “people who can bring new perspectives and life experiences to our teams. If you’re looking for a place that values your curiosity, passion, and desire to learn, if you’re seeking colleagues who are big thinkers eager to take on fresh challenges as a team, then you’re a future Googler.”
Are you a future Googler?
That’s when your talks with Google employees will come handy. Ask them what it takes to be seen as a Googler.
Think about the Google hiring process as a business transaction (and it is).
You’re the product. Google is the buyer.
Sell yourself to Google as a future Googler who has the perfect amount of Googleyness, and you got the job.
Google cares. Really.
Google’s perks and benefits are some of the best in the industry, if not the best. Consider these:
Did we mention free food? You can practically live in your Google office if you want to. Everything you need is right there, on-site.
The choice is obvious! And you already made it, by searching for Google careers.
