Why is it so difficult to get a job in Silicon Valley?
I’ve applied to hundreds of job posts with no responses. What am I doing wrong?
I’m qualified for the job, but no one wants to interview me.
My resume is perfect, but recruiters are not contacting me.
If this is a problem you are facing in your job search, you are not alone. Millions of people are looking for jobs in the US everyday. More specifically, Silicon Valley is the hottest destination for technology companies with thousands of potential employees looking for a way in. What are the main motivations for working at a Silicon Valley company?
The main reason is the pay which can be $100,000 plus at companies, but it's also the ever challenging and changing environment. Another reason is the pace at which these companies innovate is unheard of in any part of the world. This is the reason why Silicon Valley always has a talent war to find the best of the best.
Did you know that at some companies like Google, potential applicants exceed 1000? That’s insanely large. How are you supposed to get noticed with a 1000 person applicant pool?

I’m a product manager with 3 years of experience in both web and mobile products. I have worked on professional assistant mobile applications to local business advertising solutions on the web. Until recently, I led the product team for WeBeam, a professional networking tool focused on enhancing attendees’s experiences at events. In this role, I managed the development of WeBeam from idea to live product. I created user flow diagrams and PRDs, collaborated with marketing to develop the user-interface and worked alongside engineers during development, QA, and user testing. Successes included growing pre-launch signups 5% WoW, getting featured in 13 press articles like Product Hunt and LinkedIn Pulse, and driving traffic through AEO, Twitter Scripts, and Email Lists. Previous experience includes being a marketing associate at Digablue where I researched market needs, created messaging for the company’s website, and developed HTML email campaigns.
Outside of work, I enjoy developing iOS mobile applications with 4 currently in the App Store.
