Hi Amazon Recruiter’s and Hiring Managers

I gave an interview few weeks ago for SDM back in April. This was my first interview after being in a well known financial company for almost 6 years..Though technically and by leadership have a very good exposure with MBA from top business school and 10 years of software development experience , I fell short of interview preparation for SDM for various other reasons and did not do well to move beyond phone screen. I wanted to post this message to see if anyone is willing to give me another chance. I know there is a cool off period of 6 months but wanted to let you know I have put up sincere efforts since the rejection to fine tune my preparation and standup for the another chance. Please DM me if anyone is interested to give me a chance for another SDM phone screen. Appreciate your time for reading this !

      Planning!. I should have been thorough with leadership principles but instead jumped on to give phone screen immediately within in within 1-2 weeks of HR screen. I underestimated the turbulence of current job load and overall preparation required for Amazon.

      Okay. But phone screens for SDM roles typically cover system design, project management and people management. Which of these didn’t go well?

      I did not get system design question. I realized I did not map my answer well to the customer obsession and data driven principle related project management question

    Why do you want to be a SDE with an MBA from a top university? My SDM graduated from California State.

    @ATDQ56 - Did the recruiter share any feedback? If not, what makes you believe what you think went wrong was indeed what went wrong? I only ask as I'm in a similar situation!

    You can try at so many other companies , have you ? Amazon is just one of them. I don’t think they entertain lesser than 6 month’s reapplications.
