      Pretty sure. That’s what they told me when I applied. I even had a referral. Didn’t even get the HackerRank challenge and I know a ton of people much less qualified who got it but are US citizens

      Lot of international students from my university are currently interviewing for Amazon, linkedin and Walmart. So I don't think that's the case.

      Weird, I spoke to amazon and Walmart both who brought up not hiring internationals who require visa sponsorships. I had a verbal offer from Walmart which didn’t go through because the manager found out about visa restrictions through HR. And I contacted the university recruiters at LinkedIn who said they don’t have applications for new grads?

      Maybe they just weren’t interested in you and have a blanket response

      Doubt that since for Walmart, the engineering manager for a team reached out to me and extended a verbal offer. He wanted to make it official through HR who told him about the visa sponsorship problems. For Amazon, maybe but I was also referred and I have had 2 other tech internships plus a ton of relevant side projects so I expected to get the coding challenge at least which I’ve seen people with 0 side projects and lower GPAs and 0 internships get. For LinkedIn, the recruiter told me they might make new grad applications available but haven’t seen those so I don’t know how else you’d interview with them
