    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview Details

    I had a couple interviews, though for an internship. The technical one went over everything on my resume in great detail. After that we moved onto what I knew regarding programming and such. There were a lot of algorithm questions, and many focused on my ability to not brute-force the task. Definitely know the differences.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview Details

    Had to do two interviews with Cisco Systems. Both of them involved relatively the same process, but just with two different employees. Mainly this process focused on previous experiences and behavioral questions. They also asked questions regarding your knowledge of Cisco and what their future plans are.

    I met a Cisco representative at a career fair, and then was asked to have an in-person interview soon after. It went by quickly, and I had my interview shortly after. It consisted of mostly behavioral questions, the recruiter went through my resume and was very nice about the process. Nothing technical, just make sure you know your qualifications well.
