My degree is EE. Amazon had an opening for an entry level Control Systems Engineer, and so I applied. I got an email back from recruitment saying the team was pleased with my resume and that I’ll be hear back soon to schedule an interview... but for a Senior Software Engineer position, which my resume does not match. I replied letting them know that wasn’t the position I applied for. I check the Amazon jobs site and my application was “no longer under consideration”.

Amazon tends to collect resumes and see if they’re appropriate for any position—not just the position you technically applied for. I wouldn’t be surprised if you do get a follow up for an interview for that other position. I didn’t apply through an online portal so not sure what “no longer under consideration” means.

The recruiters are suuuuuper hit or miss

What’s the question?

Unfortunately you don't have a lot of options, depending on what they see fit. See what you've got on the table, and if you think you might want it and they're interested, that's a conversation.

They're very much team Amazon and not very professional on the hiring side. Take it if you want it.

Plan to go to B-school in 3 years (1 year out of UG now). Long term goal is entrepreneurship. Have offers at a MBB firm for a generalist consultant role and at FAANG for a strategy role.

Just spoke to someone who landed an interview at their dream company. They didn’t get it through applying. Here’s what they did instead: 1. They studied the job post. 2. They identified that the reason for the hire was to generate more company revenue. 3. They connected the company to a few potential customers by doing a quick looking through their network and messaging warm contacts. Unsurprised they got an interview out of it. Whats the best way you’ve seen someone land an interview?
