Engineering Manager Interview

Engineering Manager

The process took a day - interviewed at Cisco Systems in October 2009.

Interview Details – Applied through the company website but also forwarded the resume directly to the HR recruiter. (I got the name of the recruiter from a contact within the company). This was a phone screen with the recruiter and had the typical questions about why you left your company, how many people you managed, etc. This is used to determine if you will be presented to the hiring manager. The recruiter was willing to share where I stood with the competition.

Interview Question – What have been doing during this time (of unemployment)?   Answer Question
