Almost depressed that a postion that I applied for at FAANG was given to another candidate but was told that the team might reach out on my status after a headcount next month. Is there anything I could do at this time to increase my chances such as sharing my github profile or grades in grad school? Should I move on or cling onto hope..? Help

No. Be cool.

Keep your search up, reach out in a month to check in , don’t be desperate.

Move on but maintain contact with recruiter. It’s really out of your control at this point.

No one will care about grades. Just be patient
