Nope. Our data showed that brainteaser questions didn’t predict how well someone would do on the job so we no longer ask them. Instead, we do work sample tests and ask structured interview questions.

No, a CS degree isn’t required for our software engineering or product manager roles.

If you haven’t heard from us in two months about an application, we likely proceeded with other candidates for that particular role. However, our recruiters might reach out if we find a different potential match for your skills, interests, and experience.

Yes, you can apply for more than one role at once, though we recommend narrowing your choices down to a few jobs that truly match your skills, experience, and interests. We’ll review your resume/CV—and transcript for interns and new graduates—to determine the best fit.

You can apply to three jobs within a rolling 30 day window. This limit gives our hard-working staffing team more time to focus on your application and helps you focus on the jobs that are the best match for your talents.

Transitioning military personnel can find relevant jobs on our careers site using their Military Occupational Specialty code (MOS code) to search.

Our job descriptions will include any application deadlines. For most of our openings, we accept applications on a rolling basis, and we encourage you to apply sooner rather than later.

Yes, but for engineering roles, we ask that you wait a year—to gain additional experience—before reapplying.

We host outreach events at hundreds of universities all over the world to spread the word about our internships and opportunities for recent graduates. Check with your university’s careers center to see if a Google representative will be visiting your campus. And though we can't visit every school, you can find and apply for all of our open roles on our Students Site.

A broad, interdisciplinary background, with a strong understanding of computer science, is the key to any job in software engineering, at Google or elsewhere. Our Technical Development Guide offers resources to help you develop your technical skills.

No problem! We have a team dedicated to making sure you have the accommodations you need to interview. If you need for us to arrange an ASL interpreter, if you'd like your service animal with you, if you need your hotel to be wheelchair accessible, or if you have something else in mind, just ask your recruiter to connect you to the interview accommodations team. From there, you can confidentially discuss your accommodation options with a trained specialist.
