How to Get a Job at Facebook

The Facebook Application Process

Finding job opportunities on Facebook is pretty straightforward. The company’s website features a Careers page and a step-by-step process for applicants. Each step comes with a short explanation of what happens during that stage of the application. Currently, there are more than a thousand job openings. You can filter the openings by area of work, location, category, service, employment type, and job type.

Once you find the job or position you want to apply for, prepare your resume. Your resume needs to be impressive. This is because it’s the recruiter’s basis on whether you will proceed to the next step or not. Your resume should also provide credible references. After examining your qualifications, the recruiter can tell you whether you’re moving to the next round or not. When you get an initial interview, recruiters often get in touch a day after to let you know if they will proceed with your application.

Facebook values skills over experience. It’s interested in technologists skilled in software engineering, software development, and debugging. Technologists should have a full grasp of Python, SQL, and Java, as these are the coding languages with which Facebook have built their platform.

As there are likely thousands of applicants vying for the same position, you need to stand out not just with your resume but for every stage of the hiring process.

Part of the interview process will be about Facebook. Recruiters check if you understand what the organization is all about. Learn about its organizational structure, mission, vision, and values. Knowing these basic things about the company could be the edge you’ll have over similar applicants vying for the same position.

Aside from a great resume, it would help if you were great at interviews, too. You won’t just be interviewed by recruiters or hiring managers. Potential teammates and other people you might end up working with could also interview you. Each of them will provide feedback assessing your skills, organizational fit, and ability to contribute and work well in a team.

While talking to a lot of people can seem daunting, you will be less anxious if you prepare for each stage of the application process. Be truthful about your skills and your experiences. It’s even a good idea to ask for input during the interview. As a potential team member, you’re supposed to know how to ask for help.

Can You Reapply?

The hiring process is competitive at Facebook Inc.

In case another candidate is chosen over you, you can reapply after a year as the company follows a freeze period. You can build up your skills during the interim. Your first application experience will tell you the areas where you need to improve and by your next application, you’re already more capable and a better fit for the role you’re applying for.
