What if I can’t get into FANG post-grad?
Based on what I’ve been seeing on Blind, I feel as if those who aren’t in FANG spend their time trying to get into FANG or end up in a dead end job. I’ve had 3 internships so far and I’m nearing graduation now.
I’ve done lots of leetcode and just had my Google onsite, for which I feel 60% confident I’ll be able to convert into an offer (application reached HC). My friends have told me that I have a pretty stacked resume and I’ve worked hard over the past few years, but I feel like going to a non-fang will be identical to my experience going to a non-target school: I’ll be looked down upon by everyone else.
For those in non top-tier companies (not fang and not Lyft, LinkedIn, Uber, etc) do you feel like you’re looked down upon by others (esp “top tier”? Are you happy?
