      This depends on the company. Google will interview you locally, but other companies that have team specific interviews may request you to fly over.

    Average time to get the interviews is 3 months. I advice to bitte the bullet and wait. Besides time to interview it is also wait for learn your current role

    Probably some time in July? Depends on how you are applying and the company though.

      i’ve interned twice at fb and now work full time. 3 different teams and they’ve all had terrible work life balance. tbh at this point fb has left a bad taste and i don’t want to try to move offices and be stuck there for another year if i hate it.

      How bad? I’d suggest staying over a year at least.

    Ask for remote work. Tesla allowed me to do it when I asked nicely

      Interesting, didn’t know that was an option. Where do you work from if it’s not a secret?
