Can I use ey laptop to attend interview ?
Is it better to go through a faang interview loop & possibly not get it, or practice and revise port/preso/interview skills to try a bit later? A recruiter for one of my dream companies reached out and said to let him know if I want to go through interviews. Their loop lasts 2-6 months. I just finished interviewing for 3 other companies and it was really intense.
To complicate things, I have 2 offers + counter offer from my current company. Should I try for the faang now or wait?
