How can I make good resume for top-tier tech company like Google, Microsoft, or Facebook in 6 months?

Build or do something memorable. The most important advice I could give is just to DO STUFF. Don’t rest on your laurels and try and be as productive as you can be in the time you have. In 6 months you could:

  • Answer 1,800 questions on Quora and become a recognised expert in your field
  • Write and publish a charting Kindle Book
  • Enter a competitive coding competition and win it
  • Establish yourself as a Freelancer on Odesk/Elance/Freelancer/Otherwise

Don’t JUST read books. It’s not about input. It’s about output !

How can I get an interview call from Google in India?

It goes through some of the main things you can do in this time:

  • Don’t be needy. Become needed . Don’t approach Google in any way shape or form yet trying to explain how good you are. Rather demonstrate your value in the marketplace by doing one of these things:
    • Develop an app and deploy it on the App/Play Store
    • Contribute code to an open source project
    • Contribute code to a startup/new business
    • Build a complex website that has a commercial purpose
    • Start a company and make some money from it
    • Start a blog and demonstrate your knowledge in your field - get noticed

I think if you do ANY of the above to some level of success - you’ll mark yourself out as someone who has done something out of the ordinary - and in this way you will separate yourself from the pack.

  • Don’t be a sheep. Become the wolf .
