I found it to be quite useless. How about you guys?
Doing FastTrack for the second time now. Not a single interview request the first time, and none yet either.
Similar to you Dean. I got couple of interviews but they started from telephonic, other one cancelled after sending interview request. I joined it to increase my reach than what i had on linkedin. Didn’t work out for me.
Hi Dean and Ravi! Sorry to hear that you didn’t get the FastTrack activity that you expected. If you email email@example.com, we can talk about some individual options for each of you. In general, we saw some slowing over the holidays, which may have unfortunately impacted your experiences. Looking forward to connecting!
Well, it is clear your mileage may vary. And 2020 with COVID I guess it is very different to what it was in 2019.
I looked (urgently) for a job mid-2019. One of my first actions once I gave my two weeks notice, was doing the pending interviews with Triple Byte, and assigned one month for my job search.
I got 5 interview requests from TripleByte. I decided to go onsite just for 3, the latest didn’t happen at the end, not being my preferred location.
TripleByte competitors got me only 1 interview request, and that company had some trouble and didn’t follow up.
I got 3 other onsites, from recruiters who contacted me from LinkedIn or referrals. So, 5 onsites overall, 3 offers. A very reasonable pipeline, out of more than 50 companies (15 coming from TripleByte)
Out of the 3 offers, one would have been great (they were bought the week after I declined, stock climbed), but was clearly behind the two finalists: One who got an efficient onsite after TripleByte got me to them, and one who was slow but ended up with a better offer.
I found my experience really good; no question I would use TripleByte again when I need a job.
I’ve been through FastTrack twice, as well, once about this time last year, once in April 2020. Neither one generated an interview request. I did have one interview that almost led to an offer, that came from a conversation on the Triplebyte Slack (the last I heard, after a three-month grind, was that I met all their requirements but they were shutting down hiring and they hoped I would still be interested when they opened up again; that VP Engineering has since left the company).
I’ll probably do another FastTrack if a prospect I have now doesn’t pan out, but I’m not going to get my hopes up.
