I graduated Dec 2017 and plan to apply for FAANG this fall. To FAANG folks here. How long does your company define a person as new grad?
I currently work as a swe in a small company.
I ask this bc I know new grad and experienced may have different bar/interview process. Doesn't really care about the level though.

- Tesla PrjejwgI don't think there is a definitive answer, but I'd say likely < 6 months has dry high chance of being considered new grad, from 6 months to 1 year it may vary, and after 1 year it would be rare I believe.
- Microsoft sleepytimeMy understanding is that you can apply through college recruiting versus industry at MSFT for a yr after your graduation date. I think this also means your friends can't make money recommending you for that yr as well since you would still be a college hire. I worked with someone who this applied to a few yrs ago...not sure if it's still the case.
