How can a candidate in host matching best increase their chances of getting an offer? Also, what’s the probability of getting matched once in this pool if it’s already late December?

    Remove "I would like to work on a Machine Learning project." from your resume.

      Totally agree with this advice. I have hosted two interns so far and when searching for interns, I see that 90% of folks want to work on "machine learning" or "data science".

      I am on a distributed systems infra team and we don't use ml (the fact is that majority teams in Google (or any big company for that matter) do not work on ML..

      So both the times, I changed the search filter to only see candidates who did not strongly want to work on ml. That brought down the candidate list to about 100 or so (out of a pool of over a 1000 candidates waiting to be host matched)

      So please talk to your recruiter.. And when giving your preferences, be open for the type of work you want to do.

    Be more open to the teams you are matched with. Almost guarantee you'll get an offer if you're not picky

    A lot of people match early in the following year. I think mostly it's returning interns who will be SWE that have finished matching by now.
