I applied to Facebook with a referral last week for a product manager role. I got email today that they are not moving forward for the position I applied to. However, they want to setup an exploratory call to learn more about my experiences and goals. Is this common for Facebook?

Prior to my current role- I went through this with FB. This is something FB does for referral candidates they do not interview. Told me it was a courtesy to the referrer and gives you an opportunity to chat w a recruiter. We didn’t really talk anymore after that. But technically they are supposed to find roles that fit your profile and send it to you.

Thanks!

Means you are not a good fit for this role but they want to keep in touch for future roles that may open up

They could have also had an internal candidate lined up - idk about FB specially but that’s common for PM roles. However a good sign that they want to still meet to learn about your exp as it could be a fit for another role

Talk to them, send them roles you are interested in and qualify for. If your YOE/background match another first round is almost guaranteed

Honestly want to know if I am being unreasonable. My husband and I have worked f rom home since the start of the pandemic. Two kids 100% remote until two weeks ago when school started back up. I had to stop my work at 12:30pm every week day to make lunch for the kids and also made some for my husband to took it to his office nook. I typically don’t have time to stop and eat myself since I’m down at minimum those 30 minutes and I work in a bedroom so the smell of food in there is not desired…
