How to Apply for a Google Software Engineering Internship Summer 2020

Who wouldn’t want to work for Google? If you are a software engineer, it doesn’t get much better than that. It might seem a distant dream to actually work for Google, but you may be surprised to learn that the company does offer job opportunities in the form of internships. If this is something that interests you, you can apply for a Google Software Engineering Internship Summer 2020.

Better still, unlike most internships you will actually get paid for it. In addition, the experience you will gain will be invaluable and it will look good on your resume for years to come. As an added incentive, once you have your foot in the door, who knows where this opportunity will take you?

Getting Started

So how do you apply? First up, check out Google Careers online. You didn’t know there was such a thing? No we didn’t either but it is definitely worth keeping an eye on.

First up you need to complete your online application by December 2019. If you miss this deadline, you will have to apply for the following year.

Your application should be accompanied by a resume or updated CV. You also need to complete your educational qualifications – if you are still at college, just write “still attending.”

Qualifications 

To apply for a Google Software Engineering Internship Summer 2020, you need to have the minimum qualifications of a BA in computer science or similarly related technical area.

Alternatively, you need related experience in algorithms, data structures, coding or more. It is worth applying even if you have only school coursework and projects to show as experience, because Google require a range of different talents.

When you apply your application will be automatically sent to the nearest Google location across the USA. So you may find yourself working in Houston, Austin, Texas, Chicago, or even at the heart of Google in Palo Alto, California.

Diversity

The Google Software Engineering Internship Summer 2020 runs over 12 to 14 weeks, depending on the position. If you are passionate about computer science and programming, you should definitely apply for a summer internship. Google welcomes diversity, and the only thing that is required of you is that you should be good at what you can already do and are keen to learn more.

Ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or not having the trendiest interview clothes are not going to count against you. If you require accommodation or have disability needs, you are requested to fill in a form so that your particular needs can be met, but again it will not count against you.

Google does not discriminate on the basis of age either, so if you are veteran with a passion for coding, you will be just as welcome as a kid just out of university.

Missed the Deadline?

If you have already missed the deadline for next year, don’t worry. There is always 2021 to consider, so you can apply by December 2020 for the following year. Keep an eye on Google Careers’ website to make sure you don’t miss out next time.
