QUESTION: I’ve heard that the hiring processes for tech roles at FAAMNG (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Netflix, Google) is very different from those at other types of tech companies.

Your resume should show examples of projects proving your tech competencies (algorithm, coding, development, design, etc.). FAAMNG companies expect high-performance, committed performers, so be ready with answers to common interview questions. Research the theory behind curveball questions using Google. Prepare examples of how you use analytical thinking skills to solve complex problems.
