    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Budapest (Hungary)
    Anonymous Employee in Budapest (Hungary)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Nokia Networks in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Firstly, I had to send my CV and an essay in English (they said it could be as long as i wanted it to be). The topic of the essay: Importance of knowledge gained from books vs experience gained while working. After that I was called in for a test (90 min). Test tasks: 1. Write an average manual for a mobile to update the contact list. 2. Rewrite a 2 paragraphs of network architecture manual into a more user freindly form. 3. Reading comprehension task with six questions based on a PDF on network architecture and processes.
    The test was done on an older laptop with a smaller screen and without a mouse, which was a bit surprising and fairly hindering. They said I will be notified in two weeks time or if not I can write them an email.

    Interview Questions
    • The IT text I had to rewrite was quite "hardcore" compared to the fact that they did not require IT experience.   Answer Question
