Applying for a job can feel daunting. Arielle Gross Samuels is a Meta (formerly known as Facebook) leader who runs the company’s Global Environmental, Social and Governance Business. In her time at the company, she has interviewed more than 300 candidates, and she sat down with Jessica Abo to share her pro tips to help you nail your next job interview.
Jessica Abo: Before we get into your tips, can you tell us how you got your foot in the door when you started at Meta, which was called Facebook back then, in 2013?
Arielle Gross Samuels: Right out of college, I worked at Deloitte in Chicago for a few years and decided I wanted to pivot to tech. Following many conversations with the Facebook recruiting team, I flew out to interview for a Product Specialist role based in our headquarters in Menlo Park. It was a very exciting day, and I got the job offer within 48 hours. Over the last nearly 9 years at the company, I’ve done a range of roles including most recently founding my global team that focuses on Environmental, Social, and Governance business. Throughout my career and as I’ve built teams, I’ve had the opportunity to hire stellar talent — and have interviewed over 300 candidates — so I’m excited to have the conversation today.
