Job Reference: 19-07196 Type: In order to aid in strong candidate screening and preparation we wanted to share some information with you.
 
SCREENING: 
  • All candidates submitted must be contacted and prescreened by you prior to submission.  In order to be compliant with your agreement to be a part of the PRO @ Facebook supplier base it is key critical that this is completed.  
  • Please ensure you have a strong understanding of the candidate's background and resume.  Can they speak to all skills and experience listed on their resume?
  • Will they be a fit for the Facebook environment?  Soft skills are just as important as skill set to this client. Does your candidate embody and demonstrate these attributes?  This weblink will aid in understanding Facebook Core Values: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1655178611435493.1073741828.1633466236940064&type=3
  • Gain a strong understanding of where each candidate is at in their job search, evaluate if it is appropriate to submit them (knowing Facebook typically does a phone screen and onsite), and have a strong gauge of the candidate's interest level in the opportunity (make it real:  explain the selection process on the front end, give hypotheticals "If you make it to offer stage what would onboarding timeframe look like for you?").
CANDIDATE PREPARATION: (Can be shared with candidates once you have engaged them and are ready to submit)
  • Educate  candidates on Facebook (great for suppliers to be familiar with as well).  Let's get them excited and engaged!  The following web link gives you a plethora of information that can help you to learn more about Facebook and aid in stronger prep of the candidates:  https://newsroom.fb.com
  1. The 'home', 'news', and 'product' tabs provide information about some of Facebook's recent projects, product offerings, while doing an excellent job at demonstrating the things that Facebook offers beyond the social media platform.  I would also recommend using the search bar on this page and typing in the line of business or project name if discussed during the supplier calibration call (i.e. Oculus, Instagram, Messenger, etc) so that the candidate is clear about the group they are interviewing with and some of the things the team is working on, and also to create excitement about the organization.
  2. The 'company info' tab gives a clear picture about Facebook's background, history, culture, etc.
  3. The 'directory' page will take you to different Facebook pages that can further explain some of the work that the company is involved in.
  4. The 'media gallery' page shows pictures of the campus (for those of you that have not had the chance to visit this gives you a good idea of the environment)
