So I have been luckily chosen to be the first ever non-software engineering intern in Australia for Google.
Not exactly sure why I was selected out of probably the hundreds that applied, but apparently Google believes in me as much as I believe in the products, willing to give me a few months trial and then probably never to be used again.
Thats not completely true, I mostly use Google products when there are choices out there, but enough about that, and onto the internship.
End of week 3 and I have been working on quite a few different projects. The culture of throwing you in the deep end at Google was evident from day one, when straight after my orientation I met my manager expecting to go have lunch and meet the team, only to be told that we had a meeting with an agency in 15 minutes. Having no idea what the meeting was about, or any preperation whatsoever I was in this meeting helping make decisions about products I didn't know anything about!
Over the next 3 months just assume that everything good that happens with Google has all been contributed by me, and anything negative had absolutely nothing to do with me!
Until next time, Google away!
