I’m pretty sure the job descriptions tell you what experience you need

Totally depending on the role you’re applying. FAANGs are still growing and they may need at a certain point someone with your background. Having an implementation experience is a good thing since they usually look for tech people

Strong analytics skills generally help for majority of roles.

I think my friend is about to make a huge mistake and I need additional arguments for why the following is a bad idea: friend got an offer as an associate at an AmLaw 1000 firm (similar to Polsinelli) and an offer as a staff attorney at a non-market V100. Because the staff attorney firm is more prestigious, friend is leaning that way. I’ve been trying to tell them it’s a terrible idea since it’ll be hard to get another associate role after that.

Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
