As Facebook’s IPO neared and it faced a wave of protests and lawsuits from activists and critics, a new Wall Street Journal article lays out the steps to becoming a Facebook executive.
The article, written by a Facebook spokesperson and published in the March 21 issue of the magazine, offers the steps you need to take if you want to get hired at Facebook.
You’ll need to: Be a U.S. citizen and have lived in the U.K. for at least three years.
Have a minimum of $300,000 in your portfolio.
Know at least one U.N. program that helps U.s. companies.
Be at least 18 years old.
Be a recent graduate.
You should have an undergraduate degree.
Apply to a U, D, M, or B degree program at the University of Cambridge or another accredited U. of A. The deadline is Jan. 31.
You will need to be available for work on Jan. 29 and will need a Facebook account to be able to view job postings.
As of Feb. 14, the company says that it will not offer the ability to see job postings at this time.
If you have an existing account, you will have access to it from this time, the article says.
You must also have a Facebook email address.
Facebook will only offer you a job if you have a LinkedIn account.
Facebook does not say what it will do with those people who haven’t received an email, the WSJ article says, but that includes those who have been banned from Facebook for a violation of its policies.
To be eligible for a job at Facebook, you must have a minimum salary of $200,000 per year, a portfolio with $300 million or more in assets and have at least two years of experience in a company that is listed in the WSJD article.
That means you need experience in sales, marketing, product development, product management, or other similar positions, according to the article.
The Wall Street Post reports that Facebook had $30 billion in sales in 2016, up $2.3 billion from 2015.
“There are hundreds of millions of people worldwide who want to work for companies that are run by people who have a deep understanding of what’s important to them and the way to reach those people,” a Facebook spokesman told the WSJB.
But the company said in a statement to the WSJS that it would “continue to work to protect our community, but we need to do so in a way that respects people’s First Amendment rights and the First Amendment does not allow for the silencing of dissenting voices.”
“While we are aware of the concerns raised by the WSJs’ article, we have taken this issue very seriously,” Facebook added.
It also says it will “continue our efforts to work with law enforcement and the courts to resolve this matter expeditiously.”
