This 7-Year-Old Girl Wrote To Google For A Job And Got A Reply From The CEO

Chloe Bridgewater, we can't wait to see what you're going to do with your life.

When 7-year-old Chloe Bridgewater of Hereford, England got wind of some of the perks that Google employees enjoy at work, she decided that it was the place for her. In a post that's attracted quite a bit of attention on LinkedIn, her father Andy Bridgewater gives a little background.

"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. She lost a great deal of confidence after being knocked down by a car a couple of years ago."

So Chloe did exactly that. She sent a handwritten letter to Google laying out some of her plans for the future including swimming in the Olympics, working in a chocolate factory, and, of course, a career at Google.

Much to Chloe's delight, Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent her an encouraging reply.

"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." Pichai wrote. "I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school! :)"

It's so important to take the time to encourage children to work hard towards their goal. The return on investing in the future of our children is immeasurable.
