I just got a FAANG job. All this stuff about resume template and etc. doesn’t matter one bit. They want to see you have a passion and knowledge about the products, and related/tangential experience to the work at hand. It helps if you have prior interaction with the company or a competitor.

Congratulations!🎉

Good for you and many congratulations! Looking for an exit myself. Care to help out a (consulting) colleague with a referral to where you went?

Internal referrals do ensure that a human is looking at your resume vs ATS systems that reject you in 5 min flat. So that’s definitely a plus but you’re right about fit.

I recently stated an influencer program at work. I have no experience so this is all new. I ran into issues when having influencers post reels and invite us as collaborators. A few received error messages when sending the requests. It says our account doesn’t have access to Instagram music. From the research I’ve done, and my understanding it’s because we are a business account and don’t have access to use the music they choose. Does anyone have any insight or solutions around this?

I recently lateraled (3rd hear) into a biglaw firm from a clerkship just before the start of the fiscal year (Oct. 1).

I’ve been told by partners and associates to enjoy the lull but I can’t help but feel like I’m not being productive. I also feel like if I ask the partner or seniors for more work again it will genuinely annoy them. What should I do?
