Facebook ABCS Program

Apply by Friday, August 21st!

Facebook is hosting Above and Beyond Computer Science (ABCS) coding interview virtual workshop series. ABCS is a 10-week workshop series with Facebook software engineers across the country. These workshops are designed to help you master the knowledge, skills, and mindsets for a successful technical interview in industry. Although virtual, Facebook hopes that the ABCS program will offer an opportunity for you to get to know a community of peers, practice applied problem solving, and take advantage of mock phone screens to prepare for opportunities this fall. 

Participants will:

  • Master key data structures and algorithms through applied practice answering the interview-type questions with peers and engineers
  • Build comfort and confidence with interview best practices and mindsets that will prepare you for success at the whiteboard 
  • Be empowered to drive your own development through curated practice materials and challenges

The fall ABCS program launches the week of September 14, 2020. Apply as soon as possible! Sessions will be on Tuesdays at 6:30pm ET and 6:30pm PT and Wednesdays at 6:30pm ET and 6:30pm PT for 1.5 hours. Facebook asks that you attend a virtual session one day per week to be able to attend 8/10 sessions. 

Learning and development is important at Facebook. Facebook employees are always encouraging each other to hone their skills and continue to grow. Facebook wants to provide you with resources to help you stay engaged, gain some new skills/experiences, and provide you with tools that can help in next steps with future job opportunities.
Last Fall, 76% of ABCS program participants landed competitive summer internships or jobs in tech. Even if it’s not at Facebook, Facebook hopes these skills will propel you into your next internship or full-time job!
