Trying to move from Tier 2 Consulting to FAANG. 3 YoE, fast career, close to getting to PM.
However, I'm having trouble moving to FAANG and other top tech companies - I'm not even passing the screening phase. Any advice or recommendation?

Regarding AI, I find this field fascinating but I feel like it requires a lot of experience, degrees and diplomas.

I've been researching online using AWS or GCP (still learning all the moving parts of architecture). Any advice on how the setup would be? I'm assuming you'd start with some Load Balancers. For Netflix maybe have different different APIs for signing up vs scrolling through possible movies?
