This pandemic scenario has had a positive influence on the education system around the world, where online courses and online scholarships are being implemented by many colleges and institutions. And one of them is Google.
By providing over 100,000 fully funded scholarships for the 2020/2021 session, Google offers students a great opportunity to receive some advanced training and get an online credential to make a great impact on their CV.
When you apply for a similar position at Google!, the credential would be viewed as the equivalent of a four-year degree. The good news is that no one can qualify for any unique degree or experience!
The online courses offered by Google are developed and hosted via Coursera by Google experts. Students are strongly encouraged, particularly in this pandemic situation, to sign up for these online courses.
