    Actually I'm applying right now and I am not getting many responses from msft, Google, Amazon and FB.

    Things seem slower this time of the year. So I would say Jan and Feb is where things should start moving faster.

    The way I'm looking at it, is that I still have 1.5 months of prep to do.

    I currently have 200 Leetcode, 106 of them are mediums, but I lack good knowledge in system desgin.

      Thanks for the information, I am on the same boat here as I have applied to new grad, SDE I roles etc etc at amazon and FB but they were no longer under consideration the next day. My friends work at amazon also told me this year things are getting slower and most teams are having hiring freeze.

      Currently, i have done 70ish problems and i am trying to plan out my prep accordingly.

    Probably after New Years/Feb. I feel like post entry level roles are almost always hiring with certain times more than others.

      thanks for replying. I am still considered a new grad since I only have less than 1-year YOE. BTW, what will be the most effective way to get phone screens?

      Have a good resume with good, impactful content I guess? Reach out to referrals/recruiters.
