Facebook Interview - Helpful Advice
« on: September 17, 2013, 07:14:07 AM »

Facebook say that their employees come from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds and they aim to discover top talent and take their employees very seriously. They are firm believers in keeping their employees happy and fulfilled in turn getting the very best from them.

The roles available from time to time at Facebook are as follows:
  • Software Engineering
  • Legal, Finance, Facilities & Admin
  • Communications & Public Policy
  • Product Management
  • IT & Security
  • People & Recruiting
  • Design & User Experience
  • Infrastructure
  • Data & Analytics
  • Sales & Business Development
  • Online Operations
  • Marketing
At Facebook they like to concentrate on “Impact” focusing on solving the problems rather than spending hours on them and moving fast – they have a motto “move fast and break things” the idea behind this is that they are less afraid of making mistakes than losing opportunities.

They value diversity on an individual level allowing you to create the environment in which you work best in.

As you would expect you apply for Facebook roles on line on their website. They have an excellent benefits package for their employees and value diversity high on their list of requirements whatever the role may be.

Initially they conduct a 45 minute telephone interview for any role. The idea behind this is to talk through your experiences and see where you will best fit. If it is a technical role you may be asked to do some coding for example but it all depends on the role.

Rather than a specific fit of person they look for a level of enthusiasm to learn and get the job done and to see how much you understand and are keen to understand.

Facebook like two things: enthusiasm and innovation. Working for this type of company often demands a certain element of risk at interview, so that you don't come across as one dimensional or boring. Working for Facebook is a dream for a lot of people, and for this reason you really do need to put yourself out there and try your best whilst you're having your interview. Prepare, read a little about the company's history, and convince them that you could be a valued part of it.

You will need to stand out but not oversell yourself.  Remember that whatever you say on your CV you need to be able to back up, there is no point making up information to sound impressive - it WILL come back to bite you.
