    The process took a dayinterviewed at Cadence Design Systems in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    We had talked about my resume, and the work I had done previously with my former company. The interviewer went into details of the Cadence tool for which the AE would be responsible for if he were to get the job. In the end, they found other interviewees with more experience with that particular Cadence Tool.

    Interview Details

    The Process was held as a part of the college placement process. Students were shortlisted on the basis of their CGPA and there was a technical written test as the first round in the selection process.
    Six students were shortlisted for the Interview out of the 210 shortlisted. They might finally select 1-2.
    The interview was a high class filtering for those who actually deserve the job. It is usually for 1-2 hrs per person. All the best! :)
