Many people ask me how I managed to get into Google back when I was 19, and I have to say - it is not the regular success story.
Being a Software Engineer at Google was my dream since I was 13 years old when I got my first internship as a Web Developer at a german banking company.
Until I was 18, I had some more Software Engineering Internships (also at SAP) and studied Computer Science while still in High School.
➡️ When I first applied, I GOT REJECTED 7 TIMES.
All these rejections were very generic, and I decided to look out for someone to refer me to Google.
A friend of a friend worked at Google, and after a chat, she decided to refer me to Google. I got rejected another time, and she referred me again - then I got an invitation for an interview, joined as an intern and later became a Full Time Software Engineer at #Google!
Want to achieve anything? Be persistent! 🚀
