Google intern host matching

New / Eng Ivanka
Jun 8, 2018 6 Comments

I got past the phone screen for fall, but I’ve heard in host matching it is very hard to match, let alone get a good team / project.

I also don’t want to do a purely web internship, since I already did that at my last 3 and would prefer not to work on a chat app 😢

Anyone have any tips / willing to share past experiences?

    Depends on how well you felt you did in your interviews. Also tell your recruiter what you want to work on, it shows up in the internal matching tool.

      Do managers see how well the interview went? There is a form I filled out, should I try hard to brag about accomplishments over there?

      Yes, hosts can see how they went. The tool also used to sort by total rating by default, but I think they've changed that.

    Do you have a guaranteed pre-host-match offer?

      AFAIK we don't do that anymore for 95%+ of interns.
