    Bird in the hand my friend, especially when you’re an intern.

      I got ditched by Google twice.
      During internship and now they scheduled L3 interview then they canceled it by saying no more L3 headcount!

      Did you get any interviews for host Matching or just never got any host interviews?

      @uber just 1 host matching call during internship and after that they concluded internship process by saying it's full

    If it's not too late try to see if you can get those offers back. Make a story up and get recruiters to want to give it back.

      What if I get google. reject, ask for offer, reneg. Blacklisted for sure?

      That's a risk you should take. For full time host matching eventually works out but I know so many friends who got screwed over for internship. Also, I know a bunch of people who reneged but never got blacklisted, especially if it's a big company because you would probably be reached out by another recruiter. But still, it's all risk and you have to decide what you are okay with, even try to pressure Google recruiter to give you an answer.

      The other thing is winter is easier to get an internship, and if you ask for certain teams, like Google cloud because they are hiring like crazy, maybe higher chance to get matched? Google recruiters only try so hard unless you give them some direction on what teams you want.

      @Krepton, do you know any teams that could be hiring an intern for winter? I’ve been in the pool 5 weeks no calls and all my friends seem to be getting matched. Would appreciate some help if you have the time. Thanks :)

    If you really want to get matched, just say you want to work on ads.

      I mean this unironically. Freshman year, passed HC but didn't get matched. Sophomore year I passed HC again, was afraid of not getting matched, wrote 1 sentence in the section about wanting to work on ads/adsense and got matched appropriately.

    It's always safer to accept another offer and then renege on it if you get Google.
