Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Cisco Systems (Amherst, MA) in April 2012.

Interview

I sent an email to a college recruiter (they came to my school at the career fair) asking for a chance to land an interview and I expressed how badly I wanted to work for Cisco. I got called a couple of days later and they set up an interview via webchat right away. I did my research on the interviewer, all my school projects I wanted to talk about etc... I didn't nail every interview question about Java (I applied for a software position) but I tried talking about my interest in the product he helped develop the UMI. He was impressed in my interest and initiative.

Interview Questions

  • The most difficult was when he asked me if there was any part of my school projects that really tripped me up. When I confessed of a problem I had he asked me to explain what the problem was and then the solution and what I did to fix it. He expected that I learned everything about the problem in order to overcome it.   1 Answer

Negotiation

I never tried negotiating. I was pumped I even got an offer!
