Welcome Back to School
Going back to school may look a little different this year. Google remains committed to providing resources and skill building opportunities to help you make the most of your Fall, regardless of whether you are studying on campus or virtually.
With our Careers OnAir virtual event series, you can tune in to live or recorded events and have your questions answered by Googlers via chat. Can’t make something live? No problem, you’ll be able to watch the videos on demand after they air. This month we’ll have a variety of content- everything from strengthening your resume, practicing for technical interviews, learning about Google’s Cloud Technical Residency, and more! Make sure to check out our Latinx+ panels as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage month.
Careers OnAir Virtual Events
We invite you to join us for a virtual event series. Each month we'll host a variety of workshops and discussions with Googlers to provide professional and technical skill building resources, as well as an inside look at Google's culture. Head to careersonair.withgoogle.com to register and add our upcoming sessions (highlighted and linked below!). Googlers will also be answering questions live via chat for most of our sessions.

We sat down with Laura Allen, Senior Program Manager for Accessibility across Chrome & Chrome OS at Google, to discuss her path to Google, her work with Chrome & Chrome OS Accessibility and Teach Access, and offer guidance on how to make products accessible to all. Register to watch that discussion and learn how you can continue to make an impact.
In 2019 and 2020, Google Latinx+ leaders and tech interns gathered to discuss topics such as their pathways to Google, the interview process, Latinx+ representation in tech, and how they’ve grown in their current roles. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we are re-releasing these talks to keep this conversation top of mind. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

The Anywhere School: 50+ Google for Education updates
In the midst of all the change and uncertainty in the world over the past several months, the education community has never wavered in its commitment to learning and supporting students. At Google, we’re honored to work on tools that lighten the load for teachers, school leaders, families, and especially the students who have navigated learning from home with grace and resilience.
As educators worldwide have reinvented their practice online, we’re also adapting our tools to meet the evolving needs of their new educational landscape. This year, we’re taking a virtual approach to “back to school” with The Anywhere School, bringing Google for Education announcements to hundreds of thousands of viewers in more than 250 countries around the world. Learn more about this initiative.
Faculty Focus Groups
We are forming Faculty Focus Groups, which are standing groups of faculty that will convene on a monthly basis, starting in October. Teams across Google will come to the group with specific questions on how our products and programs can be improved to better serve you, your students and your communities. These groups will meet monthly for about one hour, including some background prep, and the expectation is that you’d attend about 5 meetings per year.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please fill out this form by September 10. We’d deeply appreciate any faculty input!

Googlers will share their unique perspectives and experiences, the work they do now, and how they got to where they are today. The conversation will give students an enhanced understanding of computer science and research, the impact they can have on society through these fields, and the many paths available to undergraduate students interested in a research career. This event will also include Q&A between the undergraduate student audience and the panel.
To be considered for this event, fill out this form by Tuesday, September 8. Attendance is limited, so attendees will be considered on a first come, first served basis and will hear from us by September 10.
