FB RPM Rejection

Aug 21, 2019 15 Comments

I applied to the Facebook Rotational Product Management (RPM) program with a referral a couple weeks ago and I got a rejection about 2 days later without getting the chance to interview. I know it’s a very competitive program but I thought my resume + referral were pretty solid.

Does anyone know what FB filters on for RPM?
I can also DM you my resume to take a look and get some feedback.

A little about me:
Electrical & Computer Engineering background from University of Toronto (top college in Canada)
4 internships varying in SWE and PM

I’ve been getting interviews for the other APM programs but I’m just really curious about being filtered without a phone screen at FB.

      OP
      UofT has a pretty big impact in CS and engineering. Just unfortunate that it’s not as widely recognized in the U.S

      It's a decent school for sure, just not as well known as Waterloo when it comes to engineering/CS

    Lol I’m convinced Fb RPM recruits sad/miserable consultants desperate to exit to tech or MBA folks...or eng who have worked in very obscure places...so you may be over qualified :)

    I’ve done a fair share of LinkedIn stalking for the profiles of RPMs because I was confused by the people they gave first rounds to
