my new job!!

a few weeks ago i got a job offer to work at google
and started a few days later! it has been a whirlwind and
definitely a dream come true. i have wanted to work
at this company before we even lived in california, then
chase got an amazing job there so it was a no-brainer
once i finished TFA and my master’s degree…
i HAD to apply! it was a long process and i was
 trying to find a good fit with different start-ups and
companies in san francisco, but at the end of the day
all i wanted was to work at this amazing company.
i still can’t believe it’s real! i love it and feel lucky to
be part of it. i’m working in recruiting as an RC
and the best people work there! i’m loving being
able to meet chase for breakfast or lunch any day,
go to a work out class together, or take the g-bus.
(although we’ve both been so busy that sometimes
we don’t even see each other until we’re back at
our place despite working a few buildings apart!)
google is not only insanely fun, it really is
changing the world. the information it provides
{for free!} to the world has changed the way we live
our lives and the way we communicate. daily i use
google maps, gmail, search, google shopping express,
blogger :), google news, google wallet, chromecast,
google drive, youtube, … the list goes on and on.
they are always innovating and trying new things
and working on being the best possible. it makes me
want to do the same! here is a taste of life at google:
^^ reallllly serious meeting in the ball pit…
^^ just a normal gourmet lunch being served.
i freak out every day at the amazing food!
^^ see what i mean? so many options.
^^ morning muesli, now addicted.
 ^^ so much healthy goodness
^^ also sooo many good treats :)
different froyo flavors every day with
every topping, what’s a girl to do? also,
although i don’t drink coffee i still stop by
the coffee bar a lot for my new favorite:
iced hot chocolate. slightly in love.
^^ fresh fruit + acai bowls = the best.
 ^^and, lots of fun pictures from our first day
scavenger hunt all around google headquarters.
{don’t worry, our team won!}

lunch dates during busy weeks ^

^^ can google get any more perfect?
regardless of all the fun + good food,
i really am so proud and happy to work
here because of the impact they have.
here’s to a fun new chapter!

see chase’s first week of work at google,
one year ago almost exactly.. crazy!

    Congrats and welcome to the South Bay! Your pics look so fun! I’m sure it’s hard to break away from all things Google has to offer, but there are some amazing places to check out in Mountain View! Right near Google: Sunny Bowl. Downtown MV: Xanh (great happy hour!), Agave, Cafe Baklava, St. Stephen’s Green, Tied House, Crepevine…I could go on and on. :)

      love these tips! we’ve done a few of those things in mountain view but i need to try all of these! since we’re commuting from the city we’ll have to spend some nights in mountain view to avoid that traffic!

      (Sorry about the deleted comment – I’m having issues with my mouse/computer) If you’re ever interested in any of the concerts at Shoreline, I certainly recommend the venue! Right next to Google, super fun atmosphere and tons of concerts over the summer. If you’re into country music, they’ve got a bunch of great acts coming later this summer/fall!

    Although strangely enough, this center prices as well as abilities continue being the identical, on the other hand considerably the situation might range. Effective public Relation Jobs holders and cases include the those who are good manipulators having a gentle as well as meaningful aspect.

    How amazing!!! I’m just a tad bit jealous of you. :P

    I have to ask…I hope I don’t sound like a complete moron, but are all the meals free? Google provides breakfast and lunch to it’s staff?
