Face­book Bosses

Sam­mie Dobbs & Alice Lin These FB re­cruiters look out for peeps with cre­ativ­ity and strong com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.

CLEO (Malaysia) - - COVER STORY -

To work at Face­book you have to... be bold and move fast. We look for peo­ple who will help us find creative

and scal­able so­lu­tions, will take ini­tia­tive on projects and aren’t afraid of chal­lenges. We move quickly given that the in­ter­net space evolves at break­neck pace.

You’ll need... strong com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and the abil­ity to both give and re­ceive feed­back, which is crit­i­cal in our en­vi­ron­ment. The qual­i­ties that stand out are... per­son­al­ity, work ethic, and a fo­cus on im­pact. We ask peo­ple to bring their au­then­tic selves to work; we like to see some per­son­al­ity.

We be­lieve... ca­reers aren't lin­ear any­more. You don’t have to stay at one com­pany or in one in­dus­try to ad­vance. If you can re­flect on your ex­pe­ri­ence, demon­strate what you learnt, and high­light the im­pact you had, you’ll find great op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Our best ad­vice is... Try new things and learn what you’re in­ter­ested in. If you en­joy part of your work, it’s much eas­ier to be suc­cess­ful at it.
