Before we applied to join Facebook's engineering team in London, we met a bunch of Facebook engineers but still had questions about what actually joining the team would look like: how did the recruiting process work, what preparation did interviews require, what should we expect once we joined, etc. When we're out talking to candidates today, we often get asked the same sort of questions, so we want to share our experiences with you and talk about what we learned during the process so you feel ready to nail your interview.

Interning at Facebook: Building the new mobile advertising interface
