I gave up on Google/Facebook they are just too complicated/demanding to interview with. They love PhD's and ivy-league too much
You're mistaken here. For generic developer roles they actually don't give a single f/ck about your degree and school anymore. What really counts is if you can crack leetcode-style interview questions on whiteboard under pressure in 40 minutes.

For more specialized roles like AI/ML they do still care. Apple, Facebook and Microsoft in Zurich actually have rather small engineering offices seeking exactly this type of talent for AR/VR and self driving. But not Google, they are too big and hire everyone and their uncle, as long as you have a pulse and can crack the coding interview questions. (Or should I say, "were hiring", covid screwed up advertisement companies big time)
