To protect the health and well-being of our candidates and interviewers in light of COVID-19, we will conduct all Google interviews virtually until further notice. We are closely monitoring the situation and will continue to keep all candidates updated with any changes to the interview process.

Apply for a job

  1. Once you've found a job you want to apply for, click the APPLY button near the top of the job description.

  2. Sign in to your Google Account.

    Take note of which email you use to sign in and apply. We'll send you notifications and updates at this address. If you don't have a Google Account, see the Google Account Help Center to learn how to create one.

    When you're signed in to a Google Account while applying for a job, only data that you explicitly put into the application form is sent to Google Staffing with your application. (See also Privacy policies.)

  3. Upload your resume, fill out the form, review, and submit it.


Keep in mind

  • Resume must not be over 2 MB.
  • Education, work history, and cover letter are all optional.
  • You can make changes to an application before you submit it, including loading a different resume, but you can't make changes after you submit it.
  • You must wait 90 days before re-applying for the same job. However, we find that candidates reapplying for technical roles are most successful when they've added 12 - 18 months more of experience.
  • You can apply to up to three jobs within a rolling 30 day window. Focus on applying to jobs that are the most suitable match for your talents by carefully reading the overview and qualification information. See My Applications to review the jobs you've already applied for.

Benefits to signing in to your Google Account
  • Save draft applications before you complete and submit them.
  • Pre-populate information from your last-submitted application into any new applications you create.
  • Maintain a history of the jobs you applied to on the Applications tab.
About uploading your resume or transcript from Google Drive

When using a desktop computer, you can upload your resume and transcript either from Google Drive or from files saved to your hard drive. When using a mobile device, you can only upload these documents from Google Drive.

When you upload a resume or transcript from Google Drive, a copy of the document, separate from the original, is attached to your application. Google Staffing doesn't have access to your actual Drive file, and no additional copies of your resume or transcript appear in your Drive file list as a result of this copying process. If you change your resume after uploading it, you must upload it again to ensure that the most recent version is included in your application.

See also Upload files and folders in the Drive help center.

Application status

We know you put a ton of time and energy into applying for a job. But unfortunately, we can't provide information about the status of an application. Our recruiters carefully assess your skills and experience for the roles you apply to. If there's a potential match, a recruiter will get in touch with you directly.

Troubleshooting: Previous applications aren't on Applications tab

Fret not! We did receive your previous application. It may not appear in your account for one of these reasons:

  • You applied before our new application system launched in November 2013.
  • You didn't sign in to your Google Account when completing your application.
