Employee Resource Groups at Facebook  

We build products to bring the world closer together, and this means we need a team that understands and reflects a broad range of experience, thought, geography, age, background, gender, sexual orientation, language, culture and many other characteristics. To achieve our mission of bringing the world closer together, diversity is a must-have, not an option. One way we support and strengthen diversity at Facebook is through Employee Resource Groups, they are influential networks of people who share similar values of supporting and encouraging diversity.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Facebook in November 2017.

    Interview

    It was fast. A recruiter reached out to me for a role at FB. After 3 days, the same recruiter reached out to see if I can do a phone interview with the hiring manager at FB.
