High School Symposium

Overview

We are pleased to offer High School Symposium - an enrichment program designed for high school seniors to provide students with valuable personal branding lessons. These lessons will help you to discover the personal qualities—like your values, strengths, skills and passions—that you'll develop as you begin to build your professional reputation. This year the program will be held in New York, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago and Washington, DC.

Selected students will travel to one of Google's offices in February and March of 2014 for a unique, day-long experience that will include:

  • Professional development: Understand how to identify, promote and manage your personal brand
  • Exposure: Learn how to create and leverage a network of peers and advisors
  • Fun: Tour of a Google office and a meal at the Google cafe
