Google’s interviewing process is notoriously hard.
So’s the process leading up to the interview, evidently.
Alyson Shontell wrote about her experience applying at Google for Business Insider. She was looking for a marketing position, so her experience is rather relevant.
It turns out she bombed the interview (her words) but her application was so good that she was remembered two years later by one of her interviewers.
Look at the whole application (well, okay, just the cover sheet and cover letter) here. The comments are, as usual, divided. We’re curious to see what you think…but of course, the final judgment is that the thing worked.
