    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at ANSYS (State College, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview from Ansys after meeting one of the recruiters at the Career Fair for Penn state. The interview lasted for 40 minutes and we discussed quite a lot about my previous experience, responsibilities and what I would be expected to do as an intern/co-op if I got the offer. The work they do sounded really interesting and it was a positive experience overall.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ANSYS in December 2014.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen with the head of their talent acquisition group in Pittsburgh, and then another phone interview with the CIO.

    I was asked to come in for a day-long face-to-face interviews. I met with 7 people in total over the course of 6 hours, one of them was over lunch.

    I met with 2 different HR people, several higher level sales managers, director of their internal business applications group, and the CIO.

    They weren't so concerned with my skills as much as they were looking for a cultural fit with the company and the people I'd be working with. Everyone was extremely nice, even though the day was pretty stressful, I found it was a positive experience.

    None of the questions were too difficult to answer, but I'm unsure as to what specific traits they were targeting as many of the questions were just asking for explanations of certain aspects of my background.

    A few questions were challenging, though I don't remember what they were exactly.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ANSYS.

    Interview

    I applied for a job on LinkedIn and was contacted by a recruiter about 1 week later. About a month went by before I was actually contacted for an interview after that. I had a technical phone interview discussing my PhD research, then a week later a gave a technical presentation to a team of their engineers. They called me immediately after and asked me to give a talk in person at their facility. I presented about 3 weeks later and had a day of interviews, mostly for me to get to know them, the company, and the role. They were ready to make me an offer at the end of the day.

    Interview Questions

    • Some technical questions about the material I presented after the talk. No tough questions during the in-person interviews. Questions weren't tough during the initial interview, as long as I knew my own research.   Answer Question
