I will be getting a referral, and was told to write a couple of sentences as to why I would be good for the position. Any tips on what they focus on and what I should include?

Thank you!

    What’s the comp for this role as well? I’m curious.

      Depends on the level you come in at. Ops is the catch-all bucket where most non-technical people start, so band is slightly lower than entry level MBB consulting for L3 but TC is higher when you factor in equity. Work is mostly data analysis by way of SQL.

      Quick question. I took the Khan academy course to learn SQL. Do you think that’s enough to put it on my resume? Should I mention that it was self-taught? And do you know of any resources where I can practice to solidify my skills?

      Base was around 75k in DC area when I had applied. But most of it was equity which I am not sure about.

      Not everyone makes 110k out of school bud

    Yes put in SQL assuming you don’t mind interview questions for it. Btw, sounds like a glorified data analyst role.

      Yeah... I’m trying to find any and all opportunities in DC and have had no luck at Amazon (I had a referral, but haven’t been selected for any roles I applied—3 still outstanding). Amazon is definitely my #1 choice but it’s tough with no technical background.

      Business analyst roles might be a good starting point or marketing coordinator. Transfers to better job families happen often internally.

      I’ve applied to a business analyst role. My application is still under review—it’s been a month :( not looking good

    Good sql skills are must. Don't think it will be rigorous like Eng/PM interview process. This is mostly a support role. You will get a case study. Understand the role and Uber products deeply.
