A group of Sumter County high school students recently toured Google’s Atlanta office while in town for a Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) state leadership conference. The tour began with a Q&A session with employees from a variety of areas and disciplines. Employees from Digital Marketing, Google Fiber, Google for Education, and Google Analytics shared their insights about the value of post-secondary education, as well as observations on their past work experiences. Students also participated in a scavenger hunt as they toured the office space, which spans two floors of a midtown high rise. Along the way, students witnessed Google’s unique company culture. They saw snack stations and kitchens at every turn, informal and comfortable work space--unlike traditional cubicles, a staff masseuse, two office fitness spaces, an office chalkboard which the students got to sign, and even a few office dogs, called Dooglers. The tour ended with a round-table discussion about all the things they learned during the tour.
