Timeline varies highly but it wouldn’t hurt to reach out to the recruiter

My recruiter told me before the interview when she would get back to me with next steps. Did yours set any expectations for you? I would reach out for sure. My recruiter was amazing with guiding me through the process and knew that I was anxious about hearing back so I wouldn’t worry about that it’s Normal

I meant my recruiter hasn’t contacted me post the interview. But the interviewer said “we will hopefully talk again soon.”

@OP, always reach out and one week is quite a long time to follow up.

Facebook managers, any tips for the data science manager final interview loops? Just got intimation that I cleared the screening round from two weeks ago. Have a conversation with the recruiter next week about the next steps, but any pointers would be great. The screening round interviews were reasonably easy. Is the next round an order of magnitude more difficult? Are Data Science managers expected to code or just read code? I got conflicting answers from the interviewer and recruiter.
