Hi Airbnb folks! I will be soon joining Airbnb (Seattle) for a software engineer role. My onboarding is in San Francisco for the first two weeks.

For the weekend between those two weeks, do you recommend staying in SF itself or should I travel back home? Any advantage of staying in SF?

Any other pointers for the onboarding week?

Thank you!

    Why not stay in SF and network with people from HQ/ explore the city a little?

      This is what I wanted to know. I'm not so much interested in exploring SF.

      Are people available on the weekend to network? It's dead here(Microsoft) on weekends.

      If you reach out to multiple people while you’re on site during the week, let them know you’re there for the weekend and would like to grab a coffee etc.

      Yes the recruiter told me that. I had a very very transparent recruiter. I received your DM. For some reason the application crashes every time I try to reply to you. It does not happen otherwise.

      Got your another DM. Strangely the app only crashes when I open your message thread. I can open other threads and reply to other DMs.

    You could stay in SF only if there was an app that lets you book cheap place to stay.

    You have provided enough information for your peers to unravel your identity. (Bonus: with current and previous TC)
