Click through the images to see the questions asked on the Application. When you're ready to apply, enter the Application on the APPLY page. Application questions should take only 4-10 minutes to complete (plus any time to record the video).
Please look over your work carefully. Google allows you to save your responses, so you can edit them at any time BEFORE you hit Submit. Don't hit Submit until your answers are final because Google will not allow you to change your response after submitting. ONCE THE APPLICATION IS SUBMITTED, NO EDITS CAN BE MADE TO IT.
