Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Raleigh, NC

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline in November 2010.

Interview Details – It was a very pleasant experience. The recruiter contacted me via phone and asked me about my courses and projects related to the qualifications they were looking for. He described the position to me.

Later I was called for an onsite interview. The whole team talked to me in groups of two and asked me several questions and kept asking tools and languages I used for doing my academic projects. The whole process was very smooth and each and every one of them made it really comfortable. They key is to have general software skills and a burning desire to learn and excel.
