I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in March 2009.

Interview Details – I was at lab and got a phone call after about two weeks I sent my resume to an alumni who worked there. They were the alumni and his manager, and they said they want to interview with me about my intern application in his group. They were looking for thermal modeling and simulation. So, I was asked what software I was familiar with, to what application I used the software for, and what courses I took about heat transfer. It was very sudden and I did not have time to prepare at all. I did my best to answer those questions based on my recall. The conversation was very technical orientated but not difficult. About another two weeks, they emailed me that I was offered the intern position. Then there were just routine and typical paper works. I would say the company paid interns pretty good at that time. And I learned a lot in that summer. That is my first career experience.

Interview Question – I was asked if I was familiar with a software which is common in circuit design but not related to CFD. I feel they were very interested in if I knew it.   View Answer
