I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in February 2015.
It was started with a phone interview with the group head for around one hour, and I got an invitation of the on site interview. The company arranged the travel efficiently. In on site interview, I gave a presentation about the work experiences that fit with the job description. I had 30 minutes to 1 hour to talk to almost every members in the group.

Around three days later, I got an email from the group head for extending me an offer.
