Posted by Nicole Williams on 17 February 2017


Looking for a job in the computers industry? It seems the trick might be to be a cute little girl with a lot of ambition.

This certainly seems to be the case for seven year old Chloe Bridgewater from Hereford, who sent a letter to technology giant Google’s head offices in Silicon Valley in the US last week. Chloe, who loves robots and computers said “My dad said I can sit on bean bags and go down slides and ride go karts in a job in google.”

She received a personal reply from Sundar Pichai to her hand written job application.

Here is the letter she wrote, which went viral after her Father posted it on LinkedIn.

In the letter, Chloe wrote about her skills and interest in working for the company one day, and highlighted her experience in tablet usage and robot games.

And she wrote: “My dad told me to give you a application to get a job in google. I don’t really know what one of them is but he said a letter would do for now.”

“Thank you for reading my letter, I have only ever sent one other and that was to Father Christmas. Good bye,” she concluded.

In his reply, Pichai, who is one of the highest paid chief executives in the world, told Chloe:

“I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to.”

“I look forward to receiving your job application when you finish school.”
