rejected after a call with recruiter

Nov 12, 2019 22 Comments

I applied for a fb swe position last week and had a call with one recruiter about my personal info.

Today i got an email saying they are not moving forward.

Im currently in canada and applying for a us position. Is it possible that they don't want to sponsor my h1b?

If its because of my skillsets they can simply know thst from my cv right?

    Do you really expect someone here to know why you were rejected?

      No. I just recall that someone here said fb no longer sponsor h1b for engineers under senior level. Im not sure if thats my case.

      Or maybe you don’t interview well? Or maybe there was an internal candidate? Or maybe there was someone who was more qualified? Or maybe they cancelled the position? Or maybe they had a temporary hiring freeze? Or maybe.....?

    I thought TN visas are relatively easy to get? Do you have a relavent degree?

      Yes i can. But i personally think moving to us on h1b is better so we don't have to stick to Amazon.

    It might be because of sponsorship. I also faced a similar scenario. They asked some personal questions and then sent the generic rejection mail.
