Want to Work at Facebook? How to Get Hired & Succeed

Combine the household name with the legendary Silicon Valley perks, and it’s no surprise competition for Facebook gigs is fierce. Recently voted the number one tech company on Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work list, Facebook’s culture stands head and shoulders above the rest. In an exclusive interview, Glassdoor’s Amy Elisa Jackson asked Lori Goler, Facebook’s Vice President of People, for the scoop on interviewing at the behemoth social network. Here are Goler’s insider tips for scoring the job – and succeeding once you’re in.Do a LOT of research. Facebook’s culture is a fascination for the tech press and the world at large, so articles abound – use them! Facebook’s status as a public company also means the firm conducts earnings calls every quarter. During each call stock analysts grill CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Co. about strategy and future plans, so scour call transcripts and earnings articles to learn directly from the source what’s currently most important to Facebook. That scoop will help you make the case for why you’re the best person to help Facebook achieve these goals.“Most people have done a lot of research before they come [in for an interview],” Goler says, so don’t let yourself fall behind the competition before you even land in the interview chair.Position your attitude – and your résumé – as that of “a builder and a learner.”  Those two identifiers are core to Facebook’s culture, Goler says. “What that means is that we are never done. We’re always looking at something and thinking. ‘That works pretty well but it can be even better.’ That’s true of every person on every job in every location across the globe for us.”Being a builder and a learner is “specific and broad at the same time,” Goler explains, and Facebook doesn’t think of those qualities as referring to a specific type of person or function. It’s more about your mindset versus your experience, though some of your experience can, of course, reflect your mindset, she says.So craft your résumé to highlight points in your career in which you built something new and mastered new skills. Once you’re in the hot seat at the interview, express through both explicit statements and your overall attitude that building and learning are goals as core to you as they are to Facebook.“I think there are a lot of people who would like the opportunity” to contribute to doing good, Goler says. “There is a subset that is ready to sign up for the responsibility to do that.” Make sure it’s clear that you fall into the latter category.Expect to work with autonomy and to build your own place at Facebook. Got the job? Congrats! Get ready to build your own corner of the world at Facebook. While the company conducts thorough orientations and employs “lots of rituals to help new people onboard and understand the culture,” Goler says the company trusts the right people have “self-selected into this environment” during the recruitment process. So rather than handhold by dictating daily tasks, Facebook instead tends to “provide context [about the mission and goals] so people can work with autonomy and know where everything is headed. They can go off and do their own thing.”That method is a “really important part of feeling like you’re contributing at Facebook,” Goler explains. If that prospect sounds terrifying, Facebook might not be the place for you. But if you’re interested in that kind of environment and just a bit nervous about a different way of working, don’t worry: “The water is warm,” Goler says. “It’s just practice. It’s like everything else: The more often you practice the easier it gets.” Be ready to have tough conversations. Facebook has “always been a culture that is really focused on honesty and transparency,” Goler says. “We talk about the great things and we talk about the challenges. It’s just part of the way we work.” Facebook offers support in this realm, she says, like a class on “Crucial Conversations” for managers who help to train individual contributors. The “social norm” at Facebook is to be pulled into hard conversations with no preparation necessary, which can be difficult for newbies at first. “What we say is that the more frequently you hop on them, the less hard they are,” Goler says.Ultimately Facebookers understand these conversations, though they can be uncomfortable at first, are all in service of the larger mission. “It just becomes part of the way that you work is that you are talking about the substance of what you’re working on,” Goler explains. “It’s never personal. It’s always about the work.”Interview conducted by Amy Elisa Jackson. 23 hours ago 23h 23 hours ago 23h 4.4★ Solutions Engineer (Intern) Facebook São Paulo 23 hours ago 23h 4.4★ 23 hours ago 23h 4.4★ 4.4★ 23 hours ago 23h 4.4★ Program Manager, Performance Management Facebook Dublin Data Engineer, Calibra (Blockchain) Facebook Tel Aviv-Yafo 4.4★ Offer Analyst, EMEA Facebook Dublin Full-Stack Production Engineer Facebook Dublin 4.4★ 23 hours ago 23h Available Jobs at Facebook 23 hours ago 23h Solutions Engineer Facebook Berlin 23 hours ago 23h See more jobs at Facebooklast_img read more

This healthy eating tip will help you stay within the recommended daily calorie intake

first_imgThe official recommended daily calorie intake – 2,000 for women and 2,500 for men – is a great starting point when it comes to meal planning, but it can be difficult to know exactly how many extra calories we take in during breakfast, lunch and dinner.According to Public Health England, adults in the UK are consuming over 200 to 300 calories more than they need every day, with many unsure just how many calories they should be consuming overall. To help tackle this so-called ‘calorie creep’, the organisation has launched its new ‘One You’ campaign to make it easier to manage calorie intake, particularly when eating out.The campaign has introduced a new 400-600-600 rule of thumb – that’s around 400 calories for breakfast, 600 for lunch and 600 for dinner, plus a couple of healthier snacks and drinks in-between as part of a balanced diet of 2,000 calories for women and 2,500 for men.As around a quarter of calories are consumed on-the-go, retailers including Greggs, McDonalds, Starbucks and Subway have joined the campaign to help shoppers find 400 and 600 calorie meals.‘It’s clear that excess calories are driving weight gain for many,’ Dr Alison Tedstone, chief nutritionist at PHE, said of the initiative. ‘Busy lives and too much food mean we’re often eating more food than we realise – especially when we’re grabbing food out and about. This can have a significant impact on our waistlines and our health.‘The 400-600-600 tip can help people make healthier choices when eating and drinking on the go. It’s encouraging to see major high street companies promoting lower calorie options and we hope more will follow suit.’So, what does a 400kcal meal option look like? At Boots, it includes a Louisiana Style Cajun Fritter Sandwich, a Nutritious Avocado Houmous & Veggies and a Plenish Water+ Blueberry Pear. At Greggs, it’s an Original Porridge and a Flat White. At McDonald’s, it’s an Egg and Cheese McMuffin, a white coffee and a Fruit Bag. And at Starbuck’s, Classic Oatmeal, a short Vanilla Latte and a Fruit Bag come in at 400 calories.Public Health England has made it clear that this campaign has not been designed to provide a weight loss programme and, as always, those with special dietary requirements or medical needs should seek guidance from a registered health-care professional.However, experts hope the campaign will be helpful when it comes to finding healthier food choices in shops and restaurants.‘Even with the best will in the world, it can be really tricky to stick to our healthy eating principles when we’re hungry, pushed for time and picking up food on-the-go,’ nutritionist Amanda Ursell told Cosmopolitan. ‘These days, many of the extra calories we’re consuming come from eating out of the home and it is easy to underestimate what we tuck into. This in turn can have an adverse effect on our health and on our waistlines.’According to Ursell, checking the facts before you make your meal selection is an easy way of keeping track of what you’re consuming.‘Don’t rely on instinct and guesswork when picking up food on the go, make sure you have the calorie information to hand,’ she advises. ‘Check calorie content on labels in-store when making your meal choice and look out for 400-600-600 meal options available at a range of high street stores.’Sourcelast_img read more
