The Company Hiring Without Interviews?

Mark Zuckerberg and Jensen Huang

Legendary Jersey Swap

Hired without any interviews…

Sound too good to be true?

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is making moves in the AI talent war. According to a report from March 26th, Meta is luring AI talent with high salaries and offering candidates jobs without any sort of interview.

Zuck has even been sending personal emails to employees in AI roles at other companies in an attempt to poach them for himself!

“Hey there, Zuck here. Yeah, the real Marky Mark. Please come work for me!!”

Zuck and Meta are specifically targeting the 500-1000 employees working on Google DeepMind.

In the past, FaceBook (now Meta) has had a policy of not granting higher salaries to employees threatening to leave for competing job offers. Now, the company has relaxed its policy and seems willing to do whatever is necessary to keep its AI talent in place.

One unnamed employee at Google said Zuckerberg personally emailed them detailing how important AI was to Meta and said he hoped they’d join Meta to work with him.

 "We have built up the capacity to do this at a scale that may be larger than any other individual company. I think a lot of people may not appreciate that.”


Everyone make sure to check your email just in case Zuck emailed offering a six-figure job without having to interview!


From Dishwasher to Billionaire

A short time ago, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang was Denny’s “best dishwasher”.

Now, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang (pictured above doing a “jersey swap” with Mark Zuckerberg) is a multi-billionaire.

$82 billion, to be exact.

But it wasn’t always that way…

“My first job before CEO was a dishwasher. And I did that very well. I planned my work. I was organized. I was mise en place. I washed the living daylights out of those dishes. I never left the station empty-handed. I never came back empty-handed. I was very efficient. Anyways, eventually I became a CEO. I’m still working on being a good CEO.”

How you do anything is how you do everything.

Denny’s was also the place where he and two other friends came up with the idea that would make him a billionaire.

Huang attributes his success to his humble beginnings and his “no task is beneath me” attitude.

Similarly, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ first job was at McDonalds.

Great reminder for job seekers that a dream job/life is just around the corner!


Paid Time Off Requests Hit New High

A report released earlier this month by BambooHR revealed that workers are eager to take time off, but approvals from employers are lagging.

PTO requests have increased roughly 11% since 2019 according to the study. More than 1/3 of employees ask for PTO each month, but less than half (49%) of the requests are being approved.

Experts say this trend may signal a mass influx of job seekers about to enter the job market.

Job description: “Unlimited PTO!!”

Reality:Sorry, you can’t go on that vacay…”

In February of last year, 39% of workers reported not taking a vacation in over 12 months, and more than half of those workers said they felt burned out.

Remote workers and younger workers were even less likely to request vacation with nearly half of all Gen Z workers admitting to not taking any PTO in over a year.

And now they’re finally requesting it and companies are saying too bad?!

Not a surprise that people will be looking for new jobs.
