How Google disrupted my University life

Exactly one year ago, I was interviewed for my CEMS Internship at Google UK. I had no expectations (this being my first interview ever) and was miraculously stress free.

The employer will also consider granting leave to the employee to recover fully and get back to work in a healthy condition. However, what happens if the employee […]
