We are the Facebook Recruiting team. AMAA - Ask our Team Almost Anything
Hey Reddit. My name is Will Barnett and I am an engineer recruiter on Facebook's University recruiting team. Historically, the recruiting industry hasn’t been known for transparency and at Facebook we work hard every day to make the world more open and connected – and this is my team's effort to do the same.
We want to answer all your questions about getting hired at Facebook, what it’s like working here, what types of candidates we look for, how to prepare for interviews, and anything else you’re wondering about.
Recruiters from across the company – University, Engineering, Tech, Business, Sales and Marketing, Diversity, and Programs – are lined up to help me out today so we can answer as many questions as best as possible.
I am going to do my best to answer your questions. There are some things like product decisions that I am not equipped to answer and am not going to go into the specifics of anyone's application.
We'll be answering questions from 1PM - 6PM ET.
EDIT: Thanks for showing up everyone - This was a lot of fun! We're closin' up shop on this AMA for now, will probably still respond here and there for a few hours.
