The process took a day - interviewed 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.

In the end, they found other interviewees with more experience with that particular Cadence Tool.

Actually, I refer to book and the internet if I cannot remember a systemverilog rule - duh!
