    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial 10 minutes phone screening, where the person interviewing me mostly checked again my academic credentials. Two weeks later I went for the on site interview. I gave a 1 hour long presentation about the research I did during my master degree, which was followed by 3 group interviews with various research teams. The group interviews mainly consisted in giving them more details about the skills listed in my cv without getting too technical.
