FAANG on resume

Apr 14, 2018 11 Comments

Does having FAANG on the resume help? Or do recruiters only contact/pick resumes based on the skills mentioned or based on the profile? If i move from Apple to a smaller/midsize company would that hinder the move back to FAANG?

      FAANG is just an acronym for the best performing tech stocks. We seems to be changing the meaning of it to account for prestige or tech dick wagging.

      Apple is one of the A’s. And yes, they all help your resume.

    It can help open the door, but your interview performance will be judged like all others. So somebody from a pissant company might do better than you and win the offer. Even within the company, the same applies. I just went through internal interviews at Amazon, and I had absolutely no advantage (I apparently lost both because neither hiring manager got in touch after the interviews concluded a month ago).

    everything is changing, it’s just an acronym for strong tech stock. Instead I would care more about what you have done in FANG.
