Does anyone have tips for getting a host for Google for the fall? I was in host matching for the summer although I joined somewhat late (around mid-February) and ended up not getting matched despite changing my questionnaire a lot and asking my recruiter for advice and letting them know my interests. My current recruiter is giving me no advice despite me asking for a lot and this process is somewhat frustrating because of how intransparent it is. Feedback on interviews is also confidential apparently. Also if anyone is looking for an intern with a good knowledge on security/backend development/web dev/parallel computing/computer architecture etc, who knows a good amount of languages (including Go), and who has a good amount of experience please reach out to me!

    Hello, I was in your shoes for Winter, got one interview and was not matched. This was disappointing and frustrating. I moved to Fall, also only got one interview, but it matched and I got an offer. I don't have advice because I'm not sure what they're looking for, but I would say if you don't make it this round, just try Winter too if you can.

      Don't quote me, but I believe your technical interviews are valid for a year. So if you apply again after passing technical, you just get put into host matching.

      Ahh okay. And if you don't pass the technical would you likely interview again, or is it a double edged sword where that feedback/performance is used for all your applications within the next year?

      I can confirm that if you pass hiring committee you can jump into the pool in any cycle as long as you apply and you've passed within a year.
