Thinking of taking up other offers for the time being. HC clear for L4. No numbers.
- How long till I can apply again and do team matching then, without going through interview process, HC again?
- Will work ex at FB help with finding better teams (in a year or so)?

PS - If any HM's at Google are hiring backend engineers for their consumer facing s/w product teams, please DM me :) I would be grateful! (Any locations within US)

    Take the FB offer, although note that FB Bootcamp is not a walk in park either.

      Tell more about FB bootcamp, I’m going in with soft pre-allocation to a team and now you’re making me scared.

      You’ll regret you are pre-allocated once you realize how many options are available. Guess why some team hire preallocated? Because no one joins freely. Good thing that preallocation is soft so you can join another team (in theory). This would require some extra movements and luck.

    Did you not find any teams or were none of them interesting enough for you to make the switch?

      Got few not so good match. Hardly interesting enuf to make switch. But given fb offer, i am tempted to try my luck in bootcamp. It is more transparent there.

      I see. Well, at least you got a couple matches. I am struggling to get any and I am also thinking if I should try and work somewhere else to improve my profile

    Does this happen a lot during Google hiring? What does it mean if they can't match you?
