I listened to an Interview Kickstart webinar today and they said that there's like a three strikeout rule with the FAANG+s. If you fail a few times, you can forget trying again. Is this accurate? I've read of people trying four times before they get in. Maybe this information is out of date or only applies to some companies?

I've heard similar reviews. It seems to me that they are really cutthroat over there. Were you thinking about working for them?

@Program Manger, yeah, that's the plan.

lol

So this isn't entirely untrue. If you spread it out you might be fine, but the main thing you really don't want to do is apply for a BUNCH of positions at one time. They will sniff out that you just want the company name.

@SAP 1, What's the max you would suggest at any given time?
