With over thousands of job applicants a year, it comes as no surprise that competition is stiff for open positions at Facebook.
In fact, one former employee went through 17 rounds of interviews before finally securing the role.
How can job seekers stand out when applying to the illustrious social media network?
Lori Goler, Facebook's vice president of people, discusses the company's hiring process with job site Glassdoor.
First, she suggests people learn about Facebook's company culture. "Most people have done a lot of research before they come" in for an interview, she tells Glassdoor.
She also recommends taking the time to thoroughly read call transcripts and earnings articles for up-to-date insight on what's most important to Facebook. That way, you can speak eloquently about CEO Mark Zuckerberg's vision for the company during job interviews.
Facebook has had the same mission statement since its inception: Make the world more connected. Zuckerberg even wrote a manifesto in February, in which he expressed his vision for a global and connected world.
"Facebook stands for bringing us closer together and building a global community," he writes in the statement. "The most important thing we at Facebook can do is develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us."
Zuckerberg emphasizes hiring people who support this shared vision for the company, he tells Fast Company. He adds that doing so has allowed Facebook "to take on more and more products and things that we can try to solve for the world."
