Someone referred me for swe at Facebook, the recruiter reached out and said they’re looking for atleast 2 years of full-time exp and won’t be moving forward. But still she wants to complete the app process and scheduled a phone call.

Any tips, on how to approach? I have 1 year of full-time exp as well as internships.

    I don’t suggest you continue, couple of my friends got ‘rejected’ recently right after they got offer because HC only wants someone with YOE 5+, I didn’t believe it at the first time till I applied myself and confirmed with recruiter twice about that saying I only have YOE 4, she got back to me yesterday that they won’t move forward :(((

    I guess it’s miscommunication across roles and teams, the recruiter felt sorry about that too that her supervisor had not synced on that at the beginning

      Yeah I hope it’s made up lol, especially if multiple people have gotten offers rescinded that seems so extreme. Because those people possibly leave their current job after they get/accept offer.

      The part of the story that is made up is that you did well in the interviews.

      Tbh it’s fine to not accept for experience, but what scares me is if they actually give offers then retract a lot.

      @flyingbull not sure how you made judgement on that, but you really don’t need be so mean, I doubt if you could say the same if we are talking in person. Actually recruiter reached to me saying that they want to give me E4 offer, I guess what you tried to put here is proved to be wrong, if you insist on that, I’d suggest we meet in person and discuss, probably we could be colleague at the end.

      @adjkfie they revoked for couple of times, I told the truth, you can choose to not believe, whatever.

    It doesn't add to her numbers... recruiters are measured by - recruiting (not by completing processes...)

    Probably wants to have you in the system for when they will have open positions for that level of experience

    Why do they want to complete the process if they tell you up front that they won't move forward?
