WTF Wednesday, Dear google boss

Chloe Bridgewater is 7 years old but that didn’t stop her from going after her dream job.  No sir.  She wrote her own resume, only her second letter ever, and she mailed it off, to Google!

Chloe's Google Letter

As cute as the letter was the most endearing thing is that Sundar Pichai actually responded.  For those of you who don’t know, that’s Google’s CEO, the head cheese himself.

Sundar's Letter

I don’t know about you but I think Chloe is pretty ambitious.

When I was a kid, I remember wanting a job.   Unfortunately I had a little dilemma.  I was around 7 or 8 and I was under the impression that when a grocery store said open 24 hours it meant the people who worked there slept on the check out counters and so that’s where I wanted to work because I loved sleep overs more than anything.

We had one of those 24 hour stores, but we always went grocery shopping on Fridays.  I remember wanting to get a job in there so I could sleep on those counters but I’d never be able to because sometimes on Fridays I spent the night at my Grandma’s house.

Also, I didn’t have Chloe’s penmanship.  I’m pretty sure I would have written my resume with my box of crayola’s, and I would have colored outside the lines for sure.  It’s probably for the best anyway, I realized later in life that 24 hours meant they actually worked 24 hours and my dream was shattered.

WTF It’s Wednesday and I’m probably lucky I have a job today.

Did you ever apply for a job when you were a kid?
