Solutions Architect Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Cisco Systems.
Found by 3rd party recruiter. The recruiters were super organized and helped with every step of the way through multiple interviews and salary negotiation. There were 3 phone interviews over the space of a week and the recruiter prepped me for each interviewer by letting me know their role. 2 of the 3 interviewers were not the hiring manager, but his peers.
- Detailed questions about Six Sigma tools because I am certified and the interviewer was a black belt. 1 Answer
I offered a range that was 5K apart and the offered me the low end of my range.

Solutions Architect InterviewNo OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Cisco Systems (Research Triangle Park, NC) in June 2012.
The character and soft skills seemed to go very well, but the technical content was surprisingly tough. As one might expect, I theorize there is a minimum level of networking skill for anything beyond an entry position. Overall, I think the process was very good, but the areas where more focus would be helpful to my application are pretty clear to me.
