Advice to Management
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Uber (New York, NY) in April 2021.
Uber contacted me because of my skills but the screening call was cut short because I do not have a degree. I'm always open about this and its the first time I was rejected because of it.
In this age, the degree requirement is so outdated for a basic non research engineering role. How can a company complain about the skills shortage then create barriers that keep skilled workers out? Not a culture I'd like to be a part of.
Several FAANG companies were eager to move me along in the interview process, all because of my skills and ability to do the work. Uber's policy is letting experienced, capable candidates get swooped up by competing companies.
