I'm in the lookout for a Finance Manager role at Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Nike, GE.
What is the best way to get in when you don't know anyone and you know your experience fits the job postings?

      It is in general though. Unlike tech you can get decent finance pay almost anywhere. Many LCOL or MCOL places will be a finance manager 100-140K which translates into 250-400K in Seattle. And less traffic among other stuff

    General TA advice would be to connect with similar titled people on LinkedIn and see if you feel the culture in their eyes is something you would want. Build repartee like that.

    I know Nike TA is an RPO, pretty sure all of the others are inhouse.
