Currently content at Cisco (New Grad SWE) but I plan to begin interviewing again come 2020; I will have been at Cisco for >=6 months. Looking to target other large companies (FAANG). That being said, I have 2 questions:
1) Am I correct in assuming FAANG recruiters won’t care about the <1-yr stint? I ended up on a high-impact/visibility project and will have seen releases one and two through to completion, so no shortage of resume/interview content personally, but just wondering.
2) Is leveling up possible when jumping ship this early? That is, could I actually enter the interview pipeline for SDE2 @ Amazon (or 61 @ Microsoft, etc)? I know this can be contingent on a number of things, but wondering if theres anything I can do to influence the outcome (besides kill the interview).
