I know it might sound a little dumb but I’m a new grad and I really want to work at one of FAANG... except fb amazon but especially Google and Netflix. Good benefits, the smartest people in the team, and free lunches seem too good.. How do I get there? How long should I work at the first (current) company so I can start thinking about getting interviews at tier 1 companies?

    Open a web browser and type in www.google.com or www.netflix.com. Easiest way to get there. All the best!

  • New grad? Start your own design company (on the side maybe) and become moderately successful. Go through the whole process of it and make a little bit of money. Should take 1-2 years.

    Then you apply to FAANG and they’ll happily take you.
