8 years old with no tech experience, too late for FAANG and >300k TC?
I go to a top feeder elementary school and I’m hoping to get multiple offers from FAANG with >300k TC. I'm trying to transfer to a target middle school soon so I can work my way into an elite prep HS -> HYPS -> FAANG. I just got a piggy bank but a few friends already have internships lined up and I don't want to fall behind. Trying to grind LC and browse Blind in my spare time but my parents limit my internet to 1 hour a day.
I've lined up a few options for next summer:
Local public sector position: I got a mail route in my neighborhood and dad just taught me how to ride a bike so I'll be able to leverage that. Terrible resume value, afraid I'll be pigeonholed into government work and never make it in tech/SV. Early hours aren't great (5am standup) but might be good discipline in preparation for LC grinding when I get older. Non-tech. Slow career growth.
Startup biz dev: Noah from down the street has an older brother with a 3D printer. He makes custom Fortnite figurines and sells them. Needs a guy to help expand to other playgrounds. The travel is a perk but concerned about risky stock options and comp. Non-tech again. Can’t get anyone to let me write code but can get my foot in the door at a potential unicorn here.
I'm getting a tired from my sugar crash and need to nap soon but any advice would greatly appreciated. TC 0 with 0 YOE. Ran out of internet for today so I will reply tomorrow.
