I know not everyone wants to work at Google and if they do, I hope they will find success in the company. However, Google's job criteria for certain qualities makes me wonder if all employers are looking for similar qualities and attributes as well. If they are, how will the students be hired if they do not qualify to work for Google or other companies. What will their alternative(s) be? I feel teachers need to help prepare and assess students' skills of problem solving, critical thinking, collaborating with others, ability to receive constructive criticism, be a leader, and ask high level questions and these skills will help them be successful in their future in college and/or the work force, Google or not.
