Chapter 10 Assurance of Learning Exercise #3(Pg number 681 in the pdf)

Review Facebook’s Careers page (www.Facebook.com/careers/). The

page emphasizes Facebook’s core values and explains how potential

employees could fit that mold. Bold and decisive thinking and a

commitment to transparency and social connectivity drive the page and the

company as a whole. Then research Facebook’s internal management

training programs, called “employee boot camps,” using a search engine

like Google or Bing. How do these programs integrate the traits and stated

goals on the Careers page into specific and tangible construction of

employee capabilities? Boot camps are open to all Facebook employees, not

just engineers. How does this internal training prepare Facebook employees

of all types to “move fast and break things”?
