Get the Google Job Offer by Demonstrating These 3 Traits

January 12th, 2010 by lewis

Kate Hammond is a Google product marketing manager (PMM). In this video, she describes what it takes to be a successful in her role. Here are my top three takeaways from Kate’s video, which applies for all Google job positions — not just PMMs:
  1. Think big. Small, incremental product & marketing ideas don’t get Googlers excited. If you’re asked up with new ideas during your interivew, be big and bold. Remember, “great just isn’t good enough.”
  2. Execution. Googlers get things done. Demonstrate your willingness to get your hands dirty.
  3. Work with multiple teams. To execute big ideas, you need to work with others. Demonstrate your teamwork skills during the interview.

    Thanks for sharing the video. I like the idea about being "willing to get your hands dirty". Trying new things and being willing to get dirty are two things that a great many managers frown upon.

    All things being equal, I like seeing the innovative company prosper.
