Going from FAANG tier company to lesser known startup resume impact
Hello all. I'm thinking of leaving my current company for a smaller one which may or may not have a less prestigious / well known engineering reputation. I'm relatively confident in my own engineering ability; however, I wouldn't like to be stuck in a college mindset of being scared of not getting interviews.
For people who have quit the FB/Googles of the world and joined something lesser known, how has it impacted your future job searches? Are recruiters still pestering you, or do you sort of fall off the grid?
