Google interns’ first week


Written by:

MATT MALONE: The first time
I saw the campus, it was incredible. There’s volleyball nets and
colorful umbrellas. And you see people walking
their dogs. It feels kind of like a
playground, a big playground. KIM DAY: The atmosphere around
Google, it’s definitely very eccentric, but also
very academic. MALE SPEAKER 1: At Google, we
actually do have the ability to make more of an impact on
people and more of a change in one year than many people
do in their lifetimes. FLORIAN KOENIGSBERGER: It’s an
environment in which very few limitations are placed on
where your mind can be during the day. MALE SPEAKER 1: You’re all
starting your teams this week. And some great advice is to
not to be afraid to fail. But we want to flip that around
a little bit and say don’t be afraid to succeed. MATT MALONE: My name’s
Matt Malone. I’m a graduate intern here at
Google in Consumer Operations this summer. I have a background as a
Infantry officer in the Army. I thought leading people
directly on the ground as a combat leader would provide the greatest leadership challenge. And then I switched over to
working in Intelligence. That’s where I really started
to fall in love with technology. PAOLA CORREA: My name
is Paola Correa. I go to the University
of Miami. And I study advertising
and marketing. When I was little, I used
to collect ads. I used to get a kick out of
going to different places and seeing how the same message
would impact differently and would look differently. KIM DAY: My name is Kim Day. I’m from Melbourne, Florida. I’m studying physics and
computer science at the Florida Institute
of Technology. I grew up on the space
coast of Florida. And I always grew up watching
the shuttles take off from the Kennedy Space Center. And I knew that I really wanted
to work with technology and be able to be on
the cutting edge. FLORIAN KOENIGSBERGER: My name
is Florian Koenigsberger, and I’m from New York City. Google as a company was
attractive to me because they are a tech company that’s been
so much more than that. There isn’t a place that
Google is not. GRANT OAKLEY: I’m
Grant Oakley. I’m from Spokane, Washington. Just the process of coding is
actually surprisingly fun. You get this epic win at the
end of the day, where you throw up the arms
in celebration. It’s exciting to work at Google
because unlike a lot of software companies, I use Google
products every day. That’s pretty exciting. FEMALE SPEAKER 1: So we’re
headed upstairs. MATT MALONE: I’ve always thought
of work as just– as work. FEMALE SPEAKER 1: This
is going to be your desk right here. MATT MALONE: At Google, it’s
completely different. At Google, I was extremely
excited to start at work. I could barely sleep
the first night. Yeah, my inbox has already
been exploding. FEMALE SPEAKER 1: How many? Yeah, 45 emails for your first
day’s pretty good. MATT MALONE: I’m working in
the Online Help Center. And my project is part of an
effort that will completely change the way Google is
reaching out to consumers and helping them with
Google products. FEMALE SPEAKER 2: Our help
centers are not just the US. But we have them in
40 plus languages. So you have to think about how
we’re going to manage that complexity. MATT MALONE: From your first day
as a Google intern, you’re treated as a regular employee. MALE SPEAKER 2: Don’t presume
that just because you’re an intern as such that you’re
not a member of the team. FLORIAN KOENIGSBERGER: One
usually expects as a new person to be at the bottom of
the knowledge totem pole. The fact that I’m not is an
illustration of how much responsibility is given to us
as interns across the board. CHRIS: Paola? PAOLA CORREA: How are you? CHRIS: Doing good. I’m Chris. PAOLA CORREA: Nice to meet you. I’m Paola. CHRIS: I worked with a couple
of interns last year. And every intern that I’ve seen
come on has just exuded Googliness. PAOLA CORREA: I’ll get the
hang of it eventually. CHRIS: You’ll get
the hang of it. Don’t be afraid to ask. PAOLA CORREA: OK. CHRIS: Is their work going
to be challenging? Yeah, because the most important
work is challenging. KIM DAY: This summer, I’m
working on an email notification for Google
Accounts. And it’s going to be sent out
to thousands of users. And it’s going to make their
accounts more secure. GRANT OAKLEY: My code helps
developers test their code very efficiency. And that way, they can
write good stable code for the products. MALE SPEAKER 3: You will be
working on something that not only your team, but the entire
Google will see. FEMALE SPEAKER 3: Basically,
internship is like a good experience towards becoming
a full-time hire, right? KIM DAY: The one thing that
all the interns definitely have in common is passion
and motivation to get these things done. Because you don’t necessarily
have to know everything. But you have to be
willing to learn. FEMALE SPEAKER 4: Is this your
first time at Google? INTERNS: [CHEERS]. PAOLA CORREA: The week has been
unstoppable, restless, a bunch of activities. There’s always something new. And the next activity or the
next person that we meet is more exciting than the last. FLORIAN KOENIGSBERGER: They do
a really, really good job of making you understand the
way this place thinks. I think, specifically, of an
exercise we did that gave a completely new perspective
on how to brainstorm. MALE SPEAKER 4: What is
brainstorming to you? Tell me what you guys said. MATT MALONE: It’s focused on
learning to put aside your judgments right away and avoid
criticizing new ideas that may seem strange to you. FLORIAN KOENIGSBERGER:
Impossible is not a word that’s thrown around
very often. I think it helps you imagine. I certainly did not associate
imagination with productivity before coming here. But I think this place
makes that real. PAOLA CORREA: For the rest of
it, I know that there will be a lot of work involved,
maybe some work that I don’t know how to do. But a little bit of
fear is good. MATT MALONE: I do feel a lot
different after being here for my first week. I guess I’ve always identified
myself very much with the military. I was in the military
for five years. But I’m starting to see
myself as a Googler. I see myself as someone
who fits in here. I don’t feel like an outsider. I feel Googley. GRANT OAKLEY: I would say
meeting Sergey was definitely one of the highlights of my
week, month, maybe year. He’s fine, just stopped
and shakes my hand. And then he rode off on
his elliptical bike. It’s pretty great. KIM DAY: Maybe it is a little
early to say that after I’ve only been here a week or so, but
I just feel like there’s always going to be something
new you’re going to learn every day. And that’s really the best part
about being an engineer. FLORIAN KOENIGSGBERGER: If this
is what being an intern feels like, I’d love
to be an intern for the rest of my life. [MUSIC PLAYING]

Thank you!
