    I applied for a job as an IT Analyst for Advertising at Facebook 15 minutes ago (20:30 by my laptop) and I already have an email saying they wish to give me a telephone interview tomorrow!

    Those guys are like lightning! Applied for a laugh to be honest as I didn't meet some of the criteria but will be interesting to see how this pans out!

    Well I had the interview, some rather odd and probing questions asked but who knows. I may well have a job soon!

    I wish they were that damned quick at responding to bullying/abuse on Facebook. Good luck though!

    According to the person I spoke too, 1 person will deal with around 1000 requests a day and in each office they have 5 people doing it. So its 5000 requests a day per office, something like 20 offices world wide...so that's 100'000 requests daily that are dealt with in terms of abuse/bullying/spam etc. There is "apparently" a backlog of about 3 weeks or so unless things get reported more than 100 times in a 2 or 3 days

    I have an interview in the London office tomorrow morning, was told to wear smart casual and not to have breakfast (odd requests but looking at the working conditions, jeans and tshirt seem to be the norm for facebook and they have onsite cafeterias open 24 hours). Wish me luck! lol

    Smart casual means no denim... you're going for interview! Don't risk it!

    What you wear if you get the job is another matter, but for the interiew you do need to be a little more presentable! You just don't need to wear a suit and tie. A smart polo shirt would be fine, T-Shirts unless they're brand new,ironed and without a massive logo or picture wouldn't be classified as smart casual either!

    Sorry if I sound like your Mum. I can't help it!

    Fingers crossed for you!
