Didn't even make it past a resume screening for a data scientist position at a FAANG company. While I know things are competitive, I checked all the minimum reqs for the position and thought the story would be compelling. Anyone free to give me a reality check / provide resume comments? I'll DM you.

Too many candidates that meet the preferred requirements

Yea you need to apply within 15 mins of the job post dropping or the alg will just send your resume into the trash

Happy to take a look. The reality of FAANG recruiting is its a numbers game. Any one application your chances are less than 10% even if you are hyper qualified. A few tips: - You need to apply to their 3 roles a month. Make sure these show a common interest or passion - Apply to fresh postings, ideally within 48 hours of their post date. If not your application gets buried very quickly - Network, get those internal referrals

DM'd you. Thanks for the tips! Also, are you essentially saying that recruiters looking at resumes are actually looking at things in the order they are received? So first resumes in get looked at first?
