Google Virtual Internship 2020: How to Become an Intern
To apply and get accepted for an internship at Google, is a dream come true for all is it is known for having one of the most coveted internship programs in the country. According to a report from CNN, there were over 125,000 applications last 2019- a 17% increase from 2018.
This year, Google has announced that it will be carrying on with its summer internship program however, it will be focused primarily on WFH open source projects.
According to a portion of its blog found in The Express Tribune, it stated that although 2020 would be the first time that the internship is virtual, the essence of what it feels like to be part of the family hasn't changed.
"We want our interns to have fun and make an impact on products that people use every day. Although many aspects of the program remain the same with interns working from home, we had to make some adjustments. Interns won't have the benefit of working next to experienced Googlers in a traditional office environment, which in turn impacts the kinds of projects they can work on." the tech giant revealed in its blog.

But some aspects of the film does not reflect the reality of how Google conducts its internships. According to Kitt Vanderwater, who did wo internships for Google before hiring her said the competitive aspect of the film is not accurate telling Mashable that it gives off the opposite.
Intern Matt Melone agreed, saying the hyper-competitive aspect of the movie was inaccurate.
