Google is a dream company for many people, especially in the tech sector.

But what is it really like to work at the Mountain View, California-based company?

Before founding WayUp, which connects college students and recent grads with entry-level jobs, CEO Liz Wessel spent two years at Google.

During a recent Facebook Live interview with Business Insider, the 26-year-old CEO described what surprised her the most about working at Google.

"I graduated and went to Google, where I thought everyone was going to be so brilliant at what they do and know everything and I was going to be this marketer who didn't even know anything about marketing aside from this one part-time job I had in college," she said. "And then I got in there, and everyone was really smart and figuring out what they were doing on the job."

Even at a famous company like Google, not everyone has everything figured out. Wessel said the lesson of treating every job like a learning experience, while having some confidence in your abilities, carried with her to her startup. Now, she's made one of WayUp's core values "Be a master at your craft, but know you're not the master."

"I think it's just pretty fascinating to realize that in the real world, no one really knows what they're doing," Wessel said. "Except for doctors, I hope."
