    It may seem smart casual to you but I would er on the black trousers and a normal shirt, top button open with a V-neck sweater if possible, normal shoes rather than trainers.

    But hell what do I know, good luck anyway, good to know that your in with a shout yeah!

    Well I went down in black trainers, trousers and edugeek tshirt as I said, and they said I looked good, some of the other applicants turned up in jeans and a white tshirt with white trainers. I said smart = belt and trousers, casual = black trainers and polo shirt (edugeek tshirt). Didnt look too shabby.

    I know why they said not to have breakfast, the cafe gave us an absolutely massive full english (if on a diet they sorted it accordingly) so I had no hash browns or fried slice, and got my bacon and eggs etc grilled rather than fried. As I had no hash browns, beans or toast, they loaded up on the bacon and sausages. If I went to a cafeteria normally I would have paid about a tenner for that!!

    The interview itself was interesting and a bit odd, they asked more about my family and social life than my ability to perform. Spent the first half hour (my interview was at 8) talking about my family, home life, things like that, then 15 mins or so on my ability to do the job.

    If I am honest I don't think I got it, but it was a great experience nonetheless, and they gave me the chance to meet and greet people there and ask about the job, they pulled no punches back and told me honestly it was a great job but demanding. As they are on FB all the time they are sick of it, but everyone has met Mark Zuckerberg at a staff function apparently, be it christmas do, or staff meetings etc. He holds a christmas do for everyone at the company and he pays for everything, last years tab allegedly came to £50k for the UK staff do, and that was before putting them up in a hotel (with spouses catered for as well).

    I am glad I went and would love a job, but like I said, I don't think I got it.

    If i get it, its £35k, basically analysing the reports of clicked ads etc and working out which ads are most popular and where and targeting more ads based on location and type of ads.

    Also get early access to all facebook "updates" as and when they are released to the company. Its the employees who basically say yay or ney to updates as well.

    You could be a very unpopular man... Responsible for those dreadful adverts AND admitting to having approved changes! Still I might forgive you in exchange for inside info on privacy changes!

    its literally a vote, no one person has the final yes or no, if its 50/50 it goes to a coin flip (as per my understanding), so i could well vote no and it still go ahead...as for privacy yes I would be willing to post up security details (if I got the say so)
