Getting a Facebook interview without application

So I really would like to get a chance to work at Facebook but they only allow 3 applications at a time. Could I still email and reach out to connections for an interview even if I can’t submit an application?

I’m pretty sure if someone refers you internally at Facebook, it doesn’t matter if you’ve already applied. When my friend referred me, I just got an email directly from the recruiter.


+1 to this. They have internal referral tool, so if someone refers you internally, an automated email from recruiter will be sent to you.
