I landed on the Google Career page while doing some extensive research on a certain topic that I need to write. Out of curiosity, I decided to look further and found something that really caught my interest.
I am aware that working with Google is a dream for many. With the great perks and benefits the company offers, plus the awesome working place as shown in the video below, who wouldn't be enticed to send an application with the site and dreamed of being hired?
The word difference is what really caught my attention.
Have you ever thought that you are different from the normal? Well, there are times that this thought would come to my mind. First reason, I am working online. Since I started this career, I have never met or knew personally any friend or colleague who has the same interest as I have. There were some friends whom I influenced to do the same but they ended up quitting too soon. Most of my friends with similar interest are those I've met online and we never had a chance to meet personally.
I once met some online freelancers, SEO strategists, and writers but that was for the one-time meeting. I was transferred to another place and we don't have a chance to meet again. I am lucky that my son is following my steps and is now working online too. At least, this is someone who can relate to my out-of-this-world ideas.
Of course, there are times when I am in doubt of my own sanity. Why I have seemingly peculiar interests? Is it normal to go against the rest in terms of things that I am attracted to and activities that I want to do?
It's okay to be different.
This is what I would always tell myself. As long as I am not doing anything against the law, or as long as I am not hurting anybody, I am doing the right thing.
Going back on the career opportunity in front of me. Let us take a deeper understanding of this matter.
Let's Talk About Google as a Company
Google LLC is an American multinational Company company that specializes in Internet-related services and products, which include online advertising technologies, search engine, cloud computing, software, and hardware. Google was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University, California.
Most people know Google as a search engine. I think there is no one that is not aware of what Google is. Most often, if we encounter new terms, we would oftentimes refer to Google. Do we want to know the price of an item? Do we want to know how to do something? We want to learn the meaning of a new encountered word or phrase? Just Google it! It seems that there are no more things that can't be answered by Google. Is there?

But the Google Search Engine is just one of the many products of Google. There are lots of Google products which we might not be aware of. What are these? YouTube, Google Drive, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Map, Earth, Street View, well, there are just too many products and the company continuously discovering new products which are to be released in the coming days.
Because of this, the opportunity to work with the company is always open. They are continuously looking for new individuals that would fit the requirements.

The sun symbolizing the beauty of the Philippines was at the center of the Google logo which greets the guests at the lobby. Featuring furthermore in the logo are the elements of the Philippine Flag.
