谷歌 Engineering Residency Program 是针对new grad 的一个为期一年的项目，项目期间有狗家的工程师的badge,，但是级别是L2, 做好的话可以转正为谷歌的L3 级别的full time engineer。它的官方说法是 A one-year program to transform early-career computer scientists into the next generation of technology leaders.
项目期间 前3、4个月上课，包括理论课，也有教你使用google内部的各种工具的课程，前端课程等等。之后的时间你会被分配到谷歌的两个组实习，每个组工作4个月左右。实习期间，你的peer，mentor和经理都会给你feedback, 能不能转正全靠这个feedback. 其实我个人观察并没有传说中的百分之八九十那么高。
当然，如果你想快点转正，在你第一个组实习结束以后，你可以进行两轮谷歌的onsite interview ，如果表现好，就可以直接转正了。
但是如果你的动手能力很弱，即使进了Engineering Residency Program，也很难转正。
Who should apply to the Engineering Residency program?
Engineering Residents want to solve big problems in a collaborative environment. We consider graduating seniors earning a computer science degree, as well as computer science graduates who have been in the industry for less than one year.
How is the program structured?
Engineering Residency is a one-year residency program designed to hone residents’ technical skills, provide programming experience on Google Engineering teams, and offer mentorship opportunities. Residents attend a short training period followed by rotations on up to two Google Engineering teams.
What can I expect during the “training period” of the program?
During the initial training period, which lasts eight weeks, Engineering Residency combines interactive group learning with training on Google tools, technologies and best practices. Throughout the entire program, residents will continue training by attending sessions taught by senior Google engineers, working with technical mentors, and partnering with peers in their cohort on challenging group engineering projects.
What can I expect during the “rotational period” of the program?
During the rotational period, residents are embedded on Engineering teams across the company. They work side-by-side with engineers on important, real-world projects that are core to Google.
What happens at the end of the program?
Before the end of their residency year, residents will be considered for full-time positions on Google Engineering teams, including placement with their rotation teams if applicable.
Is there an application deadline to apply for the 2019-start Engineering Resident role?
Applications for the 2019 cohort class are currently open and we’ll continue accepting applications through spring 2019.
When should I apply?
We recommend applying when you are ready to interview for the role. There is no rush to apply if you are not yet prepared and available to setup phone and video conference interviews within the next 2-4 weeks.
What are the 2019 cohort start dates and locations?
The fixed cohort start dates in 2019 are as follows: March 11, July 15 and September 23. The March 11 cohort site locations will be Mountain View, CA and New York, NY. The July 15 and September 23 cohort site locations will be Kirkland, WA, Mountain View, CA, New York, NY and Seattle, WA. Cohort start dates are fixed meaning there is not flexibility in adjusting the start date if a Resident is unable to join on their confirmed cohort start.
Is work authorization required for this role?
As included in the Engineering Resident job opening, work authorization is required for this fixed term contract role. If not a U.S. citizen, Residents must be eligible for either a TN visa or OPT.
What forms of visa sponsorship are acceptable if I am not a U.S. citizen?
If you are not a U.S. citizen, you are eligible to work in the U.S. as fixed term (12 month) Engineering Resident either via OPT or a TN visa only. Please be sure to apply for your visa sponsorship as early as possible.
Will I be eligible to apply for the H1B visa while in the program?
Given this is a fixed term program for 12 months, Resident are not eligible to apply for the H1B visa during the residency program.
如果你觉得拿下全职的实力不够，可以直接申请 residency program。即使在过了new grad fulltime 的店面后也是可以申请转成 residency 的。
从今年的面试情况看，是4轮电面，对，不需要onsite。店面难度跟new grad fulltime 一样，不要抱有幻想，题目也是从同样的题库里抽的。但是分数要求的bar会低一些。店面是两轮背靠背，pass的话再约一天，两轮背靠背，加起来总共四轮。如果已经过了new grad fulltime 的店面，可以少一轮。
注意，今年 residency program 的bar 明显比往年要高。往年如果面试 new grad fulltime 全职，分数差一点会直接给 residency 的 offer， 今年竟然还得加一轮residency的店面。而且即使直接申请 residency program，也是四轮面试，一点也不比全职的少。
