I have been working in US as Software Engineer in top tier companies.

I think it's great to share experiences with different people. Ask me anything, I will try to answer.

I can read Chinese.

1. not sure about smaller companies. Top 50 companies usually have in house recruiters spamming LinkedIn profiles, online apply, or external vendors. I applied online at the beginning, but nowadays, they contact me through LinkedIn after my work history at top tier companies

2. Phone chat with recruiter, then phone interview, then on-site interview. Mostly focus on alg, data structure, leet code style, system design, and behavior.

3. H1B -> green card -> citizen. H1B to Green card is fast (2 years), green card to citizen is about 7 years.

坦白講,耐吾耐会聽到阿邊個邊個有公司同佢做綠卡,老老实实,除左讀書時見过D 大陸来既professor外,我真系未遇過有人咁去左花旗,當然,我指香港人、及大部份大陸、台湾人,我相信系小弟生活圈子問題。
要容易正途辨居留,我唸只有澳大利亚同老加了。
