Graduate Technical Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Hudson, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2013.

Interview Details – I had one 1:1 phone interview with one of the team members. He asked me about my PhD research and asked me several questions about the problem I am trying to solve and the novelty of the work. He briefly described the project I was going to work on, and I asked him several questions. It was a positive experience. After a week or so, I was offered the internship.

Interview Question – A special case about my research   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2013.

Interview Details – I had two phone interviews with two members of the team. First interview was not great but the second one was great. They asked me about the skills needed to do the internships and also about my PhD work. They needed someone for a long term internship like 9 months or more. I was OK with that.

Interview Question – Before preparing for the phone screen, have a good look at the job req. Make sure you advertise those of your skill that are needed for the job. It is ok not to have all the skills. Nobody has that.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview Details – Basic knowledge on programming language and object oriented design.

Interview Question – Noting unexpected really. Be confident on what you say you know. In my case main requirement was Java expertise and my knowledge was tested.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – HR send you a form in the mail. They ask for an expected annual salary in there, but I don't think they take it into account at all. They are probably offering according to your time in the school.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2013.

Interview Details – I was interview for two different positions. One was over the phone, and he asked very general general questions (ie "tell me about yourself"). The other interview was on the Intel campus. I was interview by three Intel employees working for the particular department that I was interviewing for. The interviewers were very friendly, and the questions were reasonable.

Interview Question – The best way to prepare is to just know yourself and your resume. If you are a grad student, the interview can be similar to a thesis defense.   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview Details – I had one interview after chatting at a engineering conference career booth. The interview was laid back and asked about my former work experience and some other basic questions about my interests and goals. It was more a conversation than a stiff interview. Received my internship offer directly after the interview. Great company, and great experience.

Interview Question – Once again, it was a conversation more than an interview so there really were no tough questions.   Answer Question
