Graduate Research Intern Interview

Graduate Research Intern
Portland, OR

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview Details – Got email from their recruiting staff sent to our university. Direct contact with their research group member. They look for a match by your resume and ask questions if they are interested in your previous experience. I think they are more concerned about your body of knowledge so that you can do best there.

PTD Module and Integration Device Yield Engineer Interview

PTD Module and Integration Device Yield Engineer
Hillsboro, OR

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in March 2014.

Interview Details – Recruiters visited campus, and I met with them for an informal interview.
Phone interview the following week lasted about 20 min and covered my research and my resume. Very informal and pleasant. Was invited to an on-site interview.
Onsite interview started at 8:00 AM and lasted until 6:00 PM and was composed of a formal 45 min presentation of my research followed by a series of one on one interviews. All interviews were pleasant and conversational with targeted questions related to my PhD research and previous experience.
Mostly technical questions and questions I had about the culture of Intel in general.
Was given an interesting window tour of the Fab.
At the end of the interview I was offered a position, which I accepted.

Be prepared for a long interview. Pace yourself and take breaks if needed to reset and re-hydrate as you may be talking quite a bit.
Make sure you have a few good questions, and ask them!

Interview Questions

      Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Fair salary for an shiny new PhD.
