Communications Protocol Software Engineer Intern Interview

Communications Protocol Software Engineer Intern

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at MediaTek in May 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted the resume on the website. Got email after about 1 month.
The interview was at Taiwan but I was at U.S so we had a phone interview.

Two people were interviewing with me. They asked very detail part about my project, which is wireless network simulation. No other technical questions involved.
The interview also talked about the major tasks you may need to do if admitted.
They are the department doing research and simulation in 4G networks.

I thought I answered pretty well, but however I had not been contacted after 3 weeks.
And then I emailed the person and after 1 day I got the reject...

Interview Question – Asked about the project to very detail. They will discuss and even find out something you can improve. Brilliant.   Answer Question

Hardware Engineering Contract Position Interview

Hardware Engineering Contract Position
Woburn, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at MediaTek in August 2009.

Interview Details – The interview was not well organized, I just met with the manager hiring for the position and he couldn't find his list of questions to ask. When he did, he just had two questions, both technical problems he wanted me to solve.

Interview Question – He had a diagram of a simple CPU with instruction memory and data memory, and a number of instructions in the instruction memory. He said there was a bug in one of the interconnects, either one of the pins is hooked up wrong, tied to 1, tied to 0, etc. He had me go through and debug by stepping through each instruction to find out where the problem was.   View Answer

IC Design Engineerng Interview

IC Design Engineerng

Interviewed at MediaTek

Interview Details – lots of professional question, especially on our thesis or dissertation. Be sure that you familiar with every detail about your presentation. Also, some interviewer likes to ask basic question, which we take it for granted or never think it deeply. All in all, the fundamental skill and theory of circuit design are the key to pass the interview.

Interview Question – sometimes, they would ask about the real implementation issue which we never thought about it in school, but it is fine for whom just graduated interviewee.   Answer Question
