So I accidentally applied to jobs at Google and Facebook this weekend and didn’t realize you needed to be referred before and not after applying. I have a referrals going on today. Was curious if they won’t tag to my application now :/

Doesnt matter. They will prioritize your application review once referred.

Thanks so much! Sorry for the silly question - since you can only apply for a few jobs every few months - I want to do it right

Tell your referrer to ping the recruiter directly or you won't get noticed.

Got it thanks! For FB seems like it was a different portal so I applied again with their referral.

Jerk move too because your referrer won't get credit now.

They’re my close friends! I had no idea that you don’t get referred afterwards applying

Ah >.< Just did the same thing... and applied to 2 roles, realizing i have one more slot

Thank you! Similar question to ac1. Got referred literally ten min after I applied 😖. I applied through the referral link again. Do you think that’s a problem? Also, curious how has the transition been for you? Are you working less / more / the same? Do you feel more energized by your role? Is your team planning on being remote post covid?

Hey all, so I was initially informed my hiring process would be the following (Apple) HM interview -> Case study -> On site I completed case study last week and was informed it would take 1-2 weeks to hear back. I felt like I bombed the interview but ended up hearing back relatively quickly that I’ll be passed on for another interview (not on site). Since I am fed an additional interview before the on-site, does this mean my feedback was neutral?
