Hiring diverse Googlers

We're expanding the ways we look for Googlers and creating additional pathways to Google.

Preparing promising talent for leading technical roles

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) produce over 35% of Black computer scientists, so it’s critical these students are prepared for leading technical roles. Google launched the Googler-in-Residence (GIR) Program in 2013 at Howard University, with the long-term goal of revamping CS curriculum and improving coding skills at HBCUs. GIR has since expanded to 7 HBCUs, with Googlers teaching Intro to CS classes as well as driving other student development efforts across their respective CS departments. These partnerships have also led to higher enrollment in the Intro to CS classes and an unprecedented number of HBCU students joining Google as summer interns. Learn more.

Looking where we haven't looked before

In the past, our university-focused hiring programs have relied heavily on a relatively small number of schools. In the past three years, we’ve more than tripled the number of schools from which we recruit, and this campus recruiting season alone, more than 20% of the hires we made from a university were from these new campuses.

Exposing students to careers in tech through internships

Throughout the year, Google brings students from all backgrounds to our offices for real-life experience at a tech company. Our internships provide personal and professional development, programming skills, as well as an insider's look at careers in tech. Visit google.com/students to learn more about our internships, including our Computer Science Summer Institute for graduating high school seniors and the BOLD Internship Program and Engineering Practicum for college students.
