Linkedin SRE teams, how to list preference?
I'm graduating masters in May 2020 and just signed a return intern offer for LinkedIn SRE org. Recruiter tells me that I can list preference for which SRE team will absorb me but gives no guarantees due to availability, not sure if they really care about preference lol. (Some thing to note, I received exceeds on almost all categories in exit review and overall review was exceeds as well, not sure if this matters in allocating a team for me)
My background, interests and skillset: Networking, systems and security. I have prior work experience (before masters) in these domains as well. It would be really great if SRE members from linkedin are able to help me out with below questions
1. Based on my interests, what potential SRE teams within LinkedIn are a good match? Do these teams generally come under the infra org or do they have their presence in data and product orgs as well?
2. What kind of work do new grads get to do within some of these infra teams?
3. Apart from telling my recruiter, is there any other way I can make sure I can land in one of these teams? Such as - > speaking with some managers on LinkedIn etc.
Note: My intern team manager informed me that there are no reqs within his team which works out well for me because I'm not interested in pursuing a career in that particular technology as its quite niche and not my thing.
