I'm looking for more info/potential connections to FB NYC teams that might be looking for interns for the summer. Have an offer for FB MP for the summer but was really hoping to get into the NY office due to family commitments in NJ.

From other posts on Blind I've gathered that getting into NY as an intern/new grad is somewhat about getting into the right pipeline, and I was hoping people might know more about this. Also interested to know if there are MP teams that might have connections to NY/remote NY teams that would make relocating easier if full-time happens to work out!

If its relevant:

Current senior at MIT (doing 5 year masters), summer offers at FB, Apple, Citadel, Uber ATG. Past internship experience at Apple, Twitch, hedge funds, mostly focused on backend work. Research experience in networks, and still deciding between AI/networks for masters thesis + concentration. Would honestly be interested in interning anywhere within the company!

    There are several teams in NY with siblings or related teams in MPK. I’m not sure how you’d go about picking one though as your internship is matched IIRC. I don’t think you really have a choice but you should contact your recruiter.

    Honestly, I think you should try California for a bit. You’ll be living here rent free. This will probably be the last time in your life you get free rent / housing, free food etc. Make the most of it.

      Recruiter has kind of made it sound like NY is a black box that she has no info/control over. I’m originally from Palo Alto and have done two summers in the bay, was hoping to try the NY office. Do you happen to know the MPK teams that have NY siblings (I believe interns can request to some extent)?

      Just curious: I'm pretty sure you had the means to look this up yourself during your two internships. Is your interest in NYC recent?

      Sorry, the two internships were at Apple/Twitch not FB. Haven’t had any internal info/exposure to teams at FB. Been trying to get the NY office for the summer since I got my offer last month, but my recruiter said it’s just not likely.
