Mariana Kobayashi’s Persistence and Creativity Land Her a Job at Google After Being Fired from LinkedIn

Mariana Kobayashi, who was previously fired from her job at LinkedIn, has made headlines after landing a position at Google’s Dublin office following the success of her innovative video resume. The news comes as Google recently announced layoffs in several departments, including Google’s hardware and central engineering teams, as well as Google Assistant.

Kobayashi’s video resume, which took approximately 10 hours to produce, demonstrated her work experience and included pre-recorded references from former colleagues and industry contacts. She shared the video directly with a hiring manager at Google and posted it online, where it quickly gained attention from industry professionals and potential employers.

Impressed by Kobayashi’s initiative, a Google recruiter contacted her, acknowledging her overqualification for the position she initially applied for but expressing interest in her candidacy for other roles. Despite initially being slightly underqualified for the role of account executive, Kobayashi applied with a mindset of learning quickly and provided documents outlining her perceived shortcomings and her plan to address them.

Throughout the interview process, Kobayashi maintained regular communication with the recruiter, providing updates on her progress and reaffirming her interest in the position. After completing three stages of interviews, including a case study and leadership assessment, she received confirmation that she was in the final pool of candidates.

A week later, Kobayashi received the news that she had been offered the job at Google. Her success story highlights the importance of thinking outside the box in terms of job application and demonstrating a high level of interest and knowledge of the role. – The Blaze Times
