Intern Interview

Intern
San Jose, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in July 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online on their website. Was contacted by their campus recruiter asking a certain set of HR related questions. Replied with my answers immediately. The recruiter got it touch very soon saying one of their teams was interested in interviewing me. The interview was via Skype and was difficult. They expected the interns to know a lot, and rather than have them learn after getting the position, and to gain experience, it was more of an exam

Interview Question – Certain coding questions, even though I specifically mentioned that im a novice   Answer Question
