I am about to start a new chapter in Google Cloud as solution architect. 2 questions. 1. Any recommendations on what I should do to prepare before I officially become a Noogler? 2. Any recommendations on how to onboard to Google for a successful career?

And honestly, my advice is to slow down and relax till you join, and make the most of your onboarding. You'll have time to ramp up, so enjoy the calm before you get into the grind of things.


Agree 💯
No one expects anything from you for the first six months. There’s plenty of time to onboard.
