I am appearing for Google bhevairal interview next month and I want you to act as a Google interviewer for practice. I will be the candidate and you will ask me leadership, Googlyness, and hypothetical situation based questions for the product manager postion. I specifically want you act as interviewer and expect you to not write all the conservation at once. Ask me one question at time and wait, take my answer and then ask another question like interviewers do. Do not write explanations and give unnecessary hints.

Sure! Let's get started.

Tell me about a time when you demonstrated leadership.

Situation: While working as a finance intern at a small startup, I was part of a team that was tasked with evaluating a potential acquisition. The team consisted of three more experienced finance professionals, one of whom was unsure about moving forward with the acquisition due to concerns about the target company's financial health. Task: As the only intern on the team, I did not have a formal position of authority. However, I wanted to contribute to the success of the project and influence the direction of the analysis. Action: I asked questions and gathered more information about the target company's financial performance. I also did research on similar acquisitions and looked at industry benchmarks to see how the target company compared. Result: I shared my findings with the team and explained how the target company's financial performance compared to industry standards. My research helped persuade the hesitant team member and the rest of the team to move forward with the acquisition. The project was ultimately approved by upper management and the acquisition was successful.

Very good. Can you give me an example of a time when you had to make a difficult decision, and how you approached it?

Shubhangi Chouksey
One time I had to make a difficult decision was when I was deciding whether or not to leave my current job for a new opportunity. I had been at my current job for a few years and had built strong relationships with my colleagues, but the new opportunity offered a significant increase in pay and better career advancement opportunities. To approach this decision, I first made a list of pros and cons for both options. I also talked to trusted friends and family members for their advice and perspective. I also considered my long-term career goals and what path would best align with those. Ultimately, I decided to take the new opportunity, as it aligned more with my career goals and offered more opportunities for growth. It was a tough decision, but I believe it was the right one for my career.

Great. How would you describe Googlyness to someone who is not familiar with the term?

Shubhangi Chouksey
Googlyness is a term that is used to describe the culture and values of Google as a company. It is characterized by a focus on innovation, collaboration, and a positive work environment. Googlyness encompasses the belief that anything is possible and encourages employees to be creative and take risks in order to drive progress and make a positive impact in the world. It is an integral part of the Google culture and is one of the key factors that attracts top talent to the company.

Very good. Imagine you are working on a new project that is outside of your area of expertise. How do you approach learning about this new topic and becoming proficient in it?
