Google visit inspires students

By Whitney Johnson

Many college students may not receive the opportunity to meet face-to-face with representatives from big-time companies such as Google. However, last week, Hampton University students were given quite a few chances to make an impact, while a company representative hosted sessions, workshops and "coffee chats" over a three-day period. Pictured at right are Google Ambassadors Zac Hinton and Candice Brown; The HUnderground member, Brianna Dance; and Google representative, Chastity Wells.

Junior Zachary Hinton, a computer science major and broadcast journalism minor from Raleigh, N.C., interned at Google recently.

"My experience at Google this past summer was the experience of a lifetime," said Hinton. "My internship at Google increased my knowledge in both computer science and broadcast journalism." He added, "I not only learned how to code in HTML/CSS, but I also got the chance to make video scripts and edit videos for Google's YouTube page in Final Cut Pro."

Google's visit also gave hope to graduating seniors who wish to acquire a job upon graduation. "Google's visit to our school helped to ensure the probability of me being able to enter a very successful company," said graduating senior Deniqua Washington, a broadcast journalism major from Virginia Beach, Va.

These students' advice and encouragement may not only influence what they put on their resumes, but also how they view Google's hiring process. They now know that it is important to not just meet expectations but to go beyond them. In the words of Google, "Great just isn't good enough."
