Seven-year-old Chloe Bridgewater, who lives in the UK, wrote a letter to Google asking for a job.

“After seeing images of Google offices with their bean bags, go-karts, and slides, my 7-year-old daughter decided to write to Google to see if they would give her a job,” Andy Bridgewater, wrote on LinkedIn.

Chloe’s letter

Like a job seeker, 7 -year – old Chloe spoke about her own qualifications (“I like computers too), and her own knowledge of gadgets (“and I have a tablet I play games on”) to explain why she believes she would be a good fit for the company. She even provides references: “My teachers tell my mum and dad that I am very good in class and am good at my spelling, reading, and my sums.”

The letter got the attention of Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai, who wrote back with encouragement: “I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to — from working at Google to swimming in the Olympics.

“I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school!”
