    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.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cadence Design Systems in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Unscheduled telephone call: I was not expecting the call and was in the middle of another project. The interview started by asking a technical question about systemverilog - write code in your head - image the design. ---- I refuse to recite coding standards. Actually, I refer to book and the internet if I cannot remember a systemverilog rule - duh!
