      How to Answer

      According to some people, it can be a challenge to climb the proverbial ladder at Google, but that's not to say that you would remain stagnant in this position with the organization. With having so many dynamic teams and opportunities, there are certainly plenty of opportunities to grow and develop over your career with Google. Prior to your interview, take some time to put some serious thought into your career goals and ambitions. At the same time, be sure to research the Google teams and where you could see your ambitions fitting in the most and talk openly with your interviewer about your career goals.

      Ryan's Answer

      "One of the reasons I was so excited to apply and interview with Google is because of the endless growth opportunities you appear to offer your high-performing employees. My biggest goal in my career is to be in a management role where I can lead a team of individuals to success. I know that competition is stiff within Google when it comes to promotions and I am not afraid of proving myself and my abilities to lead others if offered this position."

      "The fact that Google hires highly ambitious people is one of the reasons I am so excited to explore this opportunity further. Every Google employee that I have worked with in the past has mastered the art of storytelling, public speaking, data analytics, and that's something I admire. Given the opportunity to learn from these work peers, and by applying my intense work ethic, I think I will excel within the organization. Ultimately, I want to grow my skills and gain a management role with a larger scope of responsibilities that challenges me."
