How Sundar Pichai Got His Job At Google

| Published on February 5, 2019

CEO of Google got his job with an intellectual response

Google is the world’s leading multinational cooperation and we all know how difficult it is to be a part of it. Wouldn’t it be interesting to know how the CEO of Google had managed to get his job? Don’t you wish to know what such response did he give that Google landed him as their CEO?

Interviews are hectic and pressure loaded. Interviewees always attempt to impress the interviewers with their answer and that is what of course all of us look for. But what do you do when you do not know the answer to a question? Let’s see what Sundar did, when he faced the same trouble, years back in 2004.

Sundar was interviewed about Gmail

When Sundar Pichai was first interviewed, he was asked about Gmail and the knowledge that he had about it. Sundar was clueless as he had never heard of Gmail before or probably just didn’t know the right answer. The irony of the situation lay in the fact that Google had just launched Gmail services that very day, April 1 and Sundar thought, he was being ‘April fooled.’

Sundar uses his wit to grab his job

As soon as Sundar was asked about Gmail, he answered by saying, “I don’t know about it, I haven’t used the product.” The interviewer also asked him if he had seen Gmail before to which he replied, ‘No.’

This was when interviewers showed him Gmail and that is how he was able to answer further questions relating to the same.

Can we borrow that luck?

Well, if we were him, we would have probably tried to get away with the question by framing a virtual answer, but Sundar’s audacity and intellect to answer the question valorously even with the lack of knowledge in it, impressed the interviewers thoroughly.

Well of course, we are completely entertained by Sundar’s strong wit and we hope that this luck comes to all of us when in need.
