Looking to relocate to a good tech company in NYC as an SWE, but without prior FANG-type experience, my resume is struggling to get noticed.

Would really appreciate y'all's help. Available to chat over DMs as well. Thank you!!

      Would be great if I could get them too. But I guess the value of these cards will be more if I prepare them myself

      I can, but don't think it would be the best thing for people trying to learn. A lot of the value comes from making them yourself. Also, Some of them are whiteboard pictures with typos and other quirks that only I'm aware of.

      True though. Quite an inspirational story. Can't you refer him at IBM? Ibm is pre-faang isn't it? It's the og faang since 70s or something I think.

      I understand and thank you for the heads up. My day job has a good amount of distributed systems and design work although not at your scale. Iโ€™m putting in just as much effort into design work as well.

      I hope that book also helped you to prepare OOP and system design. You will need them during on-site. In my past experience some companies ask OOP during the phone tech interview instead of coding, but maybe because that role was for experienced engineers.

    If youโ€™re interested in clinical decision support there are also smaller companies/startup startups in NYC solely dedicated to that
