Facebook rejection for New Grad role after referral - WHY ?
I was able to get referral for New Grad - SWE position at Facebook. However, the resume was rejected without even an initial phone call or an online coding challenge.
I believe my resume is decent enough since I have gotten interviews coming up at Amazon and MS. ( with online application and without any referrals ) and about to graduate from top 10 CS university and 2 SWE internships. Any insights on why this happened ?
I suspect that it's because all of my internship experience is in backend development with Java. Very little to No experience with frontend and Php.
Also, what's the process of providing referral like ? Do the person referring can do anything extra ( like write impressive stuff about my skills ) to be atleast considered for the introductory phone call.
