Do you wanna earn FAANG level salaries ...?

If your answer is yes, then let’s read how AOneCode can help you do that.

You don’t have to be a genius to work at a FAANG company.

The hardest part is getting an interview. These companies receive so many applications that getting shortlisted for an interview requires your resume to showcase achievements and experience that are much better than other applicants. This can be hard to assess since you do not know how good (or bad) other applicants are relative to you. From our past experience, references/recommendations from a current employee will significantly boost your chances of landing an interview.

Once you are invited for an interview, it gets slightly easier. These companies have a very rigid interview process, usually spread over several rounds (each being progressively more difficult than the last). If you can come up with a process to tackle these interviews, you stand a good chance of getting an offer.

Getting past these interviews requires plenty of preparation. Even if you have like over 10 years of industry experience, you still wouldn’t even get past the phone screen for a FAANG company. You need to prepare specifically for their interview process.

Getting into these companies depends a lot more on your ability to crack their interviews than on your skills. It requires the right preparation. AOneCode can help you boost your interview skills, and direct you on what to focus on while preparing.
