Facebook has become one of the favourite places to work considering its employee benefits, freedom to work, offices and co-workers. However, it is not easy to get hired at Facebook and you have to be exceptional in your skills to get hired at one of the employees’ favourite office to work.
Lori Goler, Facebook's Vice President of People, in a Glassdoor post gave out insights into how to get hired at Facebook and succeed once you are in.
Research on Facebook
Lori Goler told in an interview to Glassdoor, that Facebook’s culture is a fascination for the tech press and the world at large, so articles abound use them. Learn directly from the source what’s currently most important to Facebook. That revelation will help you make the case for why you’re the best person to help Facebook achieve these goals.
Be a builder and learner
Goler said Facebook sits on two cultural aspects-Builder and Learner. "What that means is that we are never done. We're always looking at something and thinking. That works pretty well but it can be even better. That's true of every person on every job in every location across the globe for us." It's more about your mindset versus your experience, though some of your experience can, of course, reflect your mindset.
Focus on your resume
Goler said that resume should highlight points in your career where you created something new and mastered new skills. Once you're in for the interview, express through both explicit statements and your overall attitude that building and learning are goals as core to you as they are to Facebook.
Be ready to do your own thing at Facebook
While the company conducts orientations and employs lots of rituals to help new people onboard and understand the culture. Goler says the company trusts the right people that have self-selected into this environment during the recruitment process.
Be ready for tough conversations
Goler said that Facebook has always been a culture that is really focused on honesty and transparency. "The 'social norm' at Facebook is to be pulled into hard conversations with no necessary preparation which can be difficult for newcomers initially.
