    A 7-year-old girl inspired to work at Google wrote a letter to their offices expressing her interest—and even got a response, CNBC reported.

    Chloe Bridgewater’s father Andy wrote on LinkedIn that his daughter decided to write a letter asking for a job after she saw photos of the bean bags, go-karts and slides at Google’s offices. Chloe’s letter, addressed to "google boss," outlines her goals and qualifications—"I like computers too and have a tablet I play games on," she wrote. She also revealed that the only other person she’s written a letter to is Father Christmas.
