A seven-year-old girl from England wrote in to Google for a job and received a surprise reply from its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sundar Pichai.

Chloe Bridgewater may have started school not long ago, but that did not stop her from trying to get her foot in the door at one of the world's largest technology companies.

"After seeing images of Google offices with their bean bags, go karts and slides my 7-year-old daughter decided to write to Google to see if they would give her a job," wrote her father Andy, in a LinkedIn post on Tuesday (Feb 14).

In her letter published by the BBC, Chloe expressed her interest in working at Google, a chocolate factory and becoming an Olympic swimmer.

"I like computers too and have a tablet I play games on...my teachers tell my mum and dad I am very good in class and am good at my spelling and reading and my sums," she added.

Chloe professed that it was only her second time writing a letter, the first being to Father Christmas.

Both father and daughter were delighted at receiving a reply from Google's CEO Sundar Pichai.

"I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to - from working at Google to swimming in the Olympics," Mr Pichai wrote.

"I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school!" he added.

Mr Bridgewater, a regional sales manager at manufacturing firm Fermod in Hereford gushed: "However, to say she is delighted after receiving this letter signed by Sundar Pichai himself is an understatement."

"She is now even more eager to do well at school and work for Google."
