Introduction to Facebook's Execution Interview

During the PM or rPM interview, Facebook's execution questions are the most mysterious question type. It's not a surprise that failing the execution interview is the reason why many do not get the job offer.

One may think "execution" refers to one's ability to get things done, like a project manager would. However, that's not FB's intent. 

When assessing a candidate's "execution" skills, what FB really means is testing one's "executive decision making." And FB evaluates a candidate's executive decision making skills through six categories of rare and peculiar questions that revolve around metricsROI estimation, and root cause analysis.

An Exclusive Teaching Note on Facebook's Execution Questions

A few months ago, Lewis C. Lin penned a teaching note that:

  • Details the six different "execution question" categories
  • Shares secrets on how to approach each one
  • Recommends relevant practice problems

A small group of former clients and students have seen this teaching note. 

It's now available to all of you. For more details, check out the Facebook Execution Question teaching note sign-up page.
