Just spent the last two months prepping for an interview with Amazon for a Solutions Architect position in LA. Found out Monday after completing The Loop last week that I didn't get it. Massively disappointing, especially as they do not provide feedback as a policy.
Trying to view this as a growth opportunity. I'm a mostly on-prem servers/storage/networking guy but I really want to transition to cloud architecture. I'm about to test for certified AWS solutions architect after completing the ACG course. Wondering if the community here has input on what I should do next.
The recruiter encouraged me to keep applying at Amazon for similar roles (not sure if that's just lip service). Anyone have experience getting hired at Amazon after failing an on site for one role?
Would love to work at MS or Google on their cloud teams (referrals anyone?? Lol) but are there any other good options for transitioning to cloud that I'm not considering?
Keep your head up.
