Getting into a loop. What does FB test in non tech interviews?

At Amazon, it’s mostly around leadership principles.

Would like to prepare better for FB interviews. Anybody have any tips? Going for partnerships role

    Read two books: case in point (teaches you how to think like a consultant and give organized answers to any business strategy questions) and swipe to unlock (which teaches you the key principles of how tech products work under the hood without any assumed coding knowledge through case studies like how does Google search actually work and the business strategy behind everyday tech like why does Facebook let you log into so many other sites with your fb credentials.)

    I found my fb business side interview was trying to see if i could give organized answers to questions that tested by tech strategy prowess. These two books together will teach you that

      Have read case in point. It’s an awesome book. Will pick up the other one. How were the Fb interviews structured? What was the panel trying to assess?

      My interviews process was two 45 minute video rounds and then a onsite with three more interviews. Only the last interview during the onsite really got into behavioral/leadership stuff. Seemed they were really looking for a strong understanding of the industry and ability to come up with good strategies for the other rounds. Reading swipe to unlock really saved my ass on that.

    Ask your recruiter. We typically tell candidates what to expect in their interviews as we want them to be well prepared. We want the interview to be about finding the best candidate rather than finding the one who was able to ace the interview. Your recruiter should be able to tell you who you’re speaking with, their role at the company and what they will be focusing on in the interview.

    Typically you will have one behavioral interview that will test around your ability to be successful at Facebook: working in an unstructured environment, resolving conflict, etc. the others should focus on skills relevant to the specific role you’re applying for.

    Good luck!
