Want to get one of the coveted Facebook jobs? Below is a simple guide on how to do exactly that.
Facebook is one of the giants like Amazon, Google, Apple, and Microsoft—and one of the most desirable places to work. It offers competitive salaries, great perks, and diverse career opportunities. But where it really shines is its culture.
Your hours are flexible—just do a great job.
Your supervision is minimal—you’re your own boss.
And the products you build will help billions of people—literally. You get to see your work in action simply by scrolling through Facebook.
So how do you get a job at Facebook? And not just any job. How do you get a higher-paying position like a software engineer or a project manager?
In this guide, you’ll learn:
Let’s get started.
Not surprisingly, the first place Facebook recruiters will look at will be…
Your Facebook profile.
So make it shine!
And don’t forget to clean up your other social media profiles, too. Google your name to see what comes up. You might find a few surprises.
For example, here is what comes up if you Google Mark Zuckerberg.
Of course, Mark Zuckerberg has a huge online presence.
But what about you? Google your name NOW. What do you see? That’s exactly what your recruiters will see. Are you happy with it? Not so happy?
Here is how to clean up your online presence:
Yes, it’ll take time. But it’s worth it. After all, you’re prepping to get a job not just at any company but at a social media giant!
And now, let’s talk about researching Facebook jobs.
To get a job at Facebook, you’ve got to know exactly what you want.
Sure, it sounds easy. Yet many applicants don’t do enough research. And so they fail to match their skills (and dreams) to available Facebook jobs.
You don’t want to be one of them.
Do your research!
Here is how:
How do you narrow down your choice? How do you pick the best job? We’ll talk about a secret way on how to do exactly that later in the article.
For now, here is a quick tip.
Write a list of your goals for the next ten years:
Remember, a huge part of your job is people. Even if you get a nice salary, if you don’t like the people you’re working with, is it worth it?
Now you’re ready to apply.
The most surprising thing is…
Now that Facebook rolled out its new feature—Jobs—you can apply for Facebook jobs directly on Facebook.
Play with it to see what jobs come up for you. It’s fun. But we recommend you apply on the Facebook Jobs site.
The process is pretty simple.
For example, let’s say you’re applying for a software engineer position.
You can either:
Then follow the prompts and submit your application. Done!
The next step is the interview.
Facebook has a great guide on how to prepare for an interview. In particular, how to prepare for an interview as a software engineer.
The best practice is to follow Facebook’s guidelines and to do your own research on typical interview questions for your position. Then prepare for both.
For example, you’d want to know what Facebook is looking for in an ideal candidate.
Here are Facebook’s 5 Core Values:
Do you think you can do all five? How do you understand them? What will they mean to you once you’re an employee? These are great questions to ask someone who already works at Facebook.
Once you gathered all possible interview questions (from researching them online and possibly from asking Facebook employees), print them out and do the following:
The time you’ll spend on this will give you an advantage over other applicants as not many people go through this trouble. If you will, you’ll have a higher chance of getting a Facebook job.
Calculate how many Employee Stock Options you can ask for when negotiating salary at Facebook. Use our FREE GrowthAdvisor tool. Try it now!
If only acing your Facebook interview was enough! There is one more very important part to prepare for.
And not only a salary, for that matter. But your entire compensation package, which includes Employee Stock Options (although Facebook is likely to use Restricted Stock Units).
Employee Stock Options aren’t just a perk on top of your salary. Stock options represent real money. And if you manage your options well, they can earn you a good chunk of cash. In some cases, they can help you get financially independent and retire early.
That’s why they’re an important part of your overall compensation.
And that’s why we started GrowthAdvisor.
Our mission is to help employees like you to get the compensation you deserve—actual cash (salary) plus an opportunity to own a piece of the company (stock options) and to share in the company’s future success.
With our FREE tool, you can calculate the salary you can ask for. And you can calculate the number of stock options you can ask for.
Pretty neat, isn’t it?
But wait, there is more.
Not only can we calculate your compensation.
We can also predict your compensation for up to 10 years into the future. At any company. For any job. Because…
We have developed the world’s first stock-worth predicting platform.
So you can enter any number of Facebook jobs into our tool. Or Amazon jobs. Or Google jobs. Or any jobs, for that matter.
We’ll gather the data for you in seconds and present you with simple charts and graphs.
Not only can you forget about spending time on doing the research yourself. It’s fun!
We think you’ll love comparing companies the best. See which company will make you more money.
To give you the most reliable real-world data, we have analyzed over 800,000 companies. And we’re adding more companies every day.
Imagine what you can do with this information in your hands.
You can negotiate a salary. You can negotiate equity. You can negotiate a promotion.
And you don’t have to do it alone. You can collaborate with your colleagues and negotiate together.
Here are some of the awesome things you can do with GrowthAdvisor:
With GrowthAdvisor, you can make the smartest career decisions.
A wrong job could cost you years of your life and thousands (if not millions) in lost income. Or rather, in the income you never got because you didn’t know you could ask for it.
Plus, if, for some reason, you’re unhappy at your new Facebook job, GrowthAdvisor can help you find a better job. And you’ll know exactly when it’s the right time to quit your current job and to apply for a new one.

If Facebook hires you, not only do you get to work at a great company with a great culture. A Facebook job on your resume will advance your career. Plus, of course, you get awesome perks and compensation.
An important part of your compensation will be your Employee Stock Options. Use our tool to see how much they’re worth and how much you can ask for. Then make sure to bring this information to your interview.
