It's important to be sure whether Facebook is the right fit for you before spending a lot of time preparing for an interview there. Talking to someone who currently works at Facebook—or once did—will help you better understand the company's culture. Additionally, we advise reading about hacker culture and Facebook's 5 key ideals.
Practising on your own is a great approach to get ready for all of these different types of interviews. We advise using a stopwatch and practising aloud to make the most of this practice. Play the part of both the applicant and the interviewer. It may seem odd, but we assure you that it will greatly enhance your time management, communication, and attention.
