You've heard about the perks, the free food, and the ultra-creative environment. But have you ever wondered what it's really like to work at Google?
Refinery29 and Career Contessa recently got an inside look, following around Googler Ramya Raghavan for a day. The head of politics and causes for Google+, Raghavan's job is to be immersed in the digital trends and current events that impact the company. And from what we can see, it's about as cool a gig as it sounds.
From a ride on the company's famous shuttle to brainstorming meetings over sushi, get a peek into how a day in the life at Google unfolds here, then get the full scoop at Refinery29.
6:45 AM: Google shuttle ride to Mountain View. I use the shuttle ride to catch up on email and read the news (the buses have wi-fi so it’s like being on a rolling office).
8:00 AM: Grab cereal and tea at work. I’ve learned to avoid the cafes, which serve bacon and eggs every morning, because the “Google 15” is no joke.
9:00 AM: Lead our daily editorial meeting where we go through the calendar and talk about any corresponding programs we have planned on Google+.
10:04 AM: Watch a video of Congressman John Lewis dancing to Pharrell’s “Happy” on YouTube and share it with my colleague who manages YouTube Nation, YouTube’s new daily show about trending videos.
