Hey Guys, I am from India working in a B2B SaaS enterprise company as a Digital Marketing. Could anyone tell me what should I do to get a job in company like LinkedIn, Google, Uber etc

I am a college dropout, tried two Startups failed both of them. Is there some hope that I can join them? I am sure that I have certain skills which is killer?

    Silicon valley is a liberal shit hole full of thirsty men and fake smiles. Not all grass is greener grasshopper, some are astroturf.

      Everyone likes to hate on the government but most companies are camping at the bit to get a government contract. Yes Mitre is government funded but it's a non profit entity that exists to help the government make better decisions or products. It's not perfect but judging from all the posts on Blind no company is.

      I'm not some alt right freak. In fact I'm an immigrant minority and also did time in the service as well as attending top ranked state schools for education. PC culture and liberalism goes against common sense and honest discourse. People are tired of it, which is why Trump gets popular support from a surprisingly large base.

      As far lifestyle is concerned Silicon Valley sucks. Exorbitant real estate prices, SJW agenda, and a massive sausage fest make it a non ideal place for me.

      If you love your soy juice then go ahead and cuss me out for spewing truth. Covering your ears won't make it go away though.

      Why do people here attack other people's companies? More than likely people joined because it benefitted them monetarily, based off of many of the threads that are posted here. 🤷🏼‍♂️

      @mitre you're a welfare recipient complaining about the libruls. Nothing you say carries any legitimacy.

      @addA30 You sound like a self hating sad boy. Enjoy your soy juice with an extra serving of estrogen.

    If you're a dude bang all the girls you can while in home country because unless you look like a movie star you're going to go for a long time without getting your dick wet in Silicon Valley. The ratios are horrible, women are looking for their Chad with a bad boy vibe and money, and all your friends will be awkward engineers with no game. Speaking from personal experience.

      I was so pissed off to see it first hand that i'm considering giving up tech completely. Such a BETA field.

      With the money you guys in high tech make you have lots of options to improve your lifestyle without giving up your career. Work on your style, fitness, and social circle. Once you have the right yoe move to a different city or industry. Meet people outside of tech.

      Because tech is driving global growth you guys are ridiculously well compensated, for now. But you don't know how long it will last. Better make progress in other areas of your life while benefiting the most from tech.

      I worked in sv for facilities engineering before called it quits. Yes it was real engineering work and got to do some cool design stuff with state of the art technology. But lifestyle sucked. I'm much happier in DC area but eventually want to move to NYC for the high % of single women and living without a car.

    You don't need to follow the dreams of the previous generation. Things change everywhere. Going by the trouble with visas that people talk about here, I'd suggest you stay put for the sake of your career. Travel to Silicon Valley to take tourist photos in front of the signs of major companies, because that's the most exciting it gets for anyone!

    Stay in India and found more companies.
    That is a much more pleasant and motivating environment. Once you are on h1b you will severely be tied to by too many constraints. Not to mention the mechanical fucking life in here.

    American immigration system does not allow one to get a H1b without a degree unfortunately. Your only option is to move to google in India and have them transfer you here. Or finish your degree.

    Look into efforts to build India's own Silicon Valley. There are incubators, VC's, and Angels all willing to back a team that is sharp/knows their locality and is willing to put in the work to make breakthroughs happen for problems in their area. Also incubators to back teams who are trying to "bring SV into their country". So why not start SV where you are? It's the harder road to travel, but may build better experience for your career (and potentially more rewarding/satisfying) a and also expose you to a bigger network that can help you land jobs with high caliber people and higher pay over time.

      Starting silicon valley is a broad shot but definitely there is a lot of industry all over the country
