    He said I passed first round but that the position he was trying for me got filled and is closed now.. so he was saying either I can go to onsite and then wait for team matching or if I wanted to explore some roles upfront and then interview with that team - I could do that as well..

    I am going to be out of the country for a month shortly and so I am thinking of picking this up in January..

    But I am keen to know from FB folks here as to what should I do and any pointers on how I could explore roles?

    Thanks

      Thanks @mvuY28, that’s sound advice.. but I am new to this scene and interviewing without a role in mind did seem odd but perhaps that’s common.. I hear there is a boot camp after which some team matching happens etc.. but I am deep enough into my career that I don’t feel a generalist option might work for me.. I told the recruiter to identify some roles and then we could do onsite.. but that might take time given the end of year timing.. but being prepared is better

      Interviewing without a role is a red flag and potentially a waste of time - i’ve just been trough the drill and to be fair all the time and emotional investment simply wasn’t worth it - hearing “you did brilliantly and we will get back in touch whenever we have a role for you” didn’t feel as good as I thought it would. If you apply to the rest of FAANG in the meantime, you will not only get better at the loop, but can also land competing offers which will help drive up TC.

    Thanks folks.. I looked into the invite and it says next steps, feedback and questions in the agenda.. I don’t know what to make of it..

    Last year with google I just got a curt no one a short email with no feedback. I am thinking if it’s a yes to go to next round why delay, the recruiter should be anxious to schedule the next round..

    Anyway will wait..

    expect a no. Often recruiters say 'next steps' if it's a good news else they say 'update' or 'feedback'.

    If it's no I would appreciate just getting an email than live through this anxiety but some recruiters do consider not calling but telling it on email is unprofessional.
