After two years of trying and five interviews, I've finally got an internship with Google this summer. I'll be working as a Technical Solutions Engineer in the Partner Solutions Organisation at Google London and the work I do will hopefully ultimately improve the results you get when you carry out a local search on Google Maps. I've been to visit the team I'll be working with and had lunch at Google, with a tour of the building. All I'm going to say is, I can't wait to start!
I'm currently looking for short term accommodation in London over the summer. I'm looking for a 3 month let of a studio flat (or potentially a flat share) from mid-June to mid-September. I need somewhere in the range of £100-200 per week which is in easy reach of London Victoria station, somewhere on the District, Circle or Victoria tube lines would probably be ideal. My basic requirements are a double bed, a shower, an Internet connection and basic kitchen facilities.
If anyone has or knows of something suitable, I'd be extremely grateful if you could contact me by email (ben at tola.me.uk). So far I've been looking on rightmove.co.uk and gumtree.com and I'm not having a huge amount of success. There's lots out there, but I keep coming across problems.
