Facebook Aggressively Recruiting Top University Talent

Facebook has now reached the 800 employee mark, and is reaching for more. Now that the company is getting big, it’s building out its HR function and is about to begin a 20 university (and 5 B-School) national recruiting tour from which it will hope to bring in dozens more engineers, product managers, and “user operations” specialists.

Facebook will be making the rounds at Stanford, Berkeley, Brown, Caltech, Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Georgia Tech, Harvard, MIT, Michigan, NYU, Texas, UCLA, UIllinois, UNC, Washington, Waterloo, and Wisconsin, and the MBA rounds at Berkeley – Haas, Harvard Business School, MIT – Sloan, Northwestern – Kellogg, and Stanford GSB. See the full schedule here.

That’s good news for students who now have another large hot software company to play off offers from the recruiting magnet that is Google. Google has traditionally been known around Silicon Valley for harvesting throes of grads from Stanford and other top schools to run its advertising and development operations. A large number of Facebook employees, including recent executive hires Sheryl Sandberg and Elliot Schrage, have defected from Google over the last year.

    Hello Facebook!? I spent months building a so-called “My Facebook” site!? Then thru Administrative Privilege,- they (FB) REMOVED me from Facebook!! So WRONG & DISCRIMINATORY!! – And without a hearing, recourse, or whatever!! Totally uncaring to my work or feelings! It is a shame that such Powers that be, as FACEBOOK Owners / Controlers, can weld So much POWER Over OUR LIVES!! NO RIGHTS at all!! Anti-American & anti-We-the-People to the max!! Sad that they will make $Billions off of US,- the People, and they the Elitist Corporate Self, continue with Online Economic & Free-Speech Terrorism!! Every one deserves a second chance and a Right to be Heard!! So much Filth & Usery on FACEBOOK Is Allowed because it makes $Money$, – and Honest Individualism & Sharing is ignored!! Hopefully job-seekers will see the Real Agenda of FACEBOOK!! — “God Bless President Obama”!!
