How hard is it to get an interview for SWE at FAANG outside of on campus recruiting? I’m in GT’s OMSCS program right now, hoping to take advantage of career fairs in the fall, but I don’t know if I’ll have enough time to prepare for the technical interviews before then. I’m worried about missing out on the recruiting opportunity and having to resort to applying online/LinkedIn. Any insights into this?

I don't remember. I wasn't following it that closely.

You wont have any time between now and September to prepare for technical interviews ? I think you should try your best to be prepared to take advantage of on campus recruiting. Not sure how the OMSCS program works with recruiting but I went to gatech for undergrad and if you have access to the general CoC / all campus career fairs, you should take full advantage since gatech is a great feeder for FAANG

Hmmm okay. I learn best ground up so I was hoping for some foundation from a course before jumping into leetcode/other interview prep materials but maybe I shouldn’t do that. I’m actually supposed to graduate OMSCS this December - one of the cons of the program is that the way they do registration, it’s hard to get into required popular classes like algorithms til later in the program, even though it would make more sense to take it earlier. I’ve taken all my electives, just have 2 required courses left lol

I’ve been looking for an in-house position for years now and I’m emotionally worn out. I got through numerous rounds of interviews with one company recently, only for them to pass.

Hello... This is for Deloitte guys. I have cleared the interview in Delloite and have signed and sent the letter of intent and it's been 11 days and I still haven't received my formal offer letter. Also the HR is not picking up my call. She just once said that it is pending with the offer management team. Do you have any idea if this takes so long or where has it gone wrong? Please let me know if you have any idea. I am really really worried. Thanks.
