5 Tips to Ace Your Facebook Technical Program Manager Interview

Cracking interviews at the FAANG companies, especially Facebook, is challenging. According to Gayle McDowell, the author of “Cracking the Interview Code,” a candidate on Facebook is asked similar questions as the other applicant, and the performance is compared between the two. Thus, your unique approach to solving a problem can make a difference. 

Here are some expert tips for your tech interview prep:

  • Be prepared to explain your educational background and why you are the perfect fit for this role.
  • Before sitting for an interview, make sure to research the company well. Expect questions like "Why Facebook?." It seems generic, but it is difficult to answer. Hence, prepare for it.
  • It is a technical interview. So, be ready to showcase your technical knowledge and your previous experiences. Questions like "Tell me about a project you have managed?" "Tell me about the architectural design of the project," etc., are pretty common.
  • Prepare for a mock interview with your peers to uplevel your confidence.
  • And lastly, remember to speak clearly and in a concise manner.

With the right preparation, hard work, and a streamlined work approach, you can land a job at Facebook as a Technical Program Manager.
