    Facebook is committed to supporting your career growth. How could we further develop you in the next 6 months?

      How to Answer

      The interviewers would like to know, if given a choice, what type of professional development you would choose to complete. This question is one way of asking about your areas of improvement while also discovering what avenue of work is genuinely capturing your interest. Discuss a career-related topic that aligns with your short-term career goals at Facebook.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I recently read about Facebook's Leadership in Practice program and am very interested in learning what it takes to enter the program. I would love the opportunity to learn more about leadership best practices, team-building, and coaching rising leaders."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Right now, if given the opportunity to develop any skill, I would choose to strengthen my knowledge of Python. Since it's quickly becoming the default language for data science and machine learning, I feel it's crucial that I, as a Programmer, am well-trained in this area."

      "I have been following site reliability, IaC, and DevOps practices for managing our Infrastructure and have been a big promoter of it within BioRad, which gives higher availability and reliability. Provide 24/7 global support for internal and external customers. I would love to learn more about how this is done on Facebook and at that scale compared. Especially the processes, tooling, etc."

      Kristine's Answer

      Nice work! You mention your specific experience and how you would like to expand upon that experience and knowledge with the company. I reworded it slightly to ensure clarity.

      "I have been using IaC and DevOps software development practices for managing my company's infrastructure, which gives higher availability and reliability. I have long been a big promoter of it within my company as it allows us to provide 24/7 global support for our internal and external customers. I would love to learn more about how this is done on Facebook and on a large scale. I'm especially interested in developing my skills with regard to the processes and tools used."
