Failed at FAANG, where to apply now?

Nov 29, 2019 39 Comments

I'm waiting for my Google rejection after the onsite, didn't go past manager screening at Facebook and Apple neither contacted me even though I had a referral.

(Never tried at netflix, had an on-site at Amazon years ago and I'd happily reapply again but I donts see relevant opportunities for me).

What should I try now? I'm fine with startups and scale-ups with a decent team. Also don't mind 50+ hrs/week. Non-swe, based in Bay area, 8+ yoe.

      OP
      It was maybe 6 years ago, I was out of a visa and had maybe 30 days left legally in the country. Also I felt I did ask for higher comp. Interview wasn't hard at all though.

    Check out Forbes cloud 100 list. Pick any company there, join them, and wait for them to go IPO. Profit

      Is the Forbes Cloud 100 list reputable?

      I applied online. Didn't get call. Recruiter contacted me this year for hiring event and ghosted. Does microsoft hire only oncampus and referrals?
