Software Engineer Intern Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Qualcomm.

Interview Details

Recruiting came to my school and I handed in my resume at an infosession. Was selected for an on-campus interview. The questions were fairly straightforward, nothing unexpected. This a few years ago so I don't remember all of the questions. The only question I remember was how to reverse a linked list. There was also a bit manipulation question.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Qualcomm in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met through a college career fair. I heard back a few weeks later and started the interview prices. Depending on your recruiter, you sometimes have to stay on top of things and keep asking about interviews, especially if you're looking for one on campus. That said, my recruiter was exceptionally nice and helped with any questions I had.

    • Really just a few of the typical CS interview questions (I think it was the counterfeit coin question and maybe a few basic questions about C).   View Answer

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview Details

    I met them at an infosession, handed my resume and got an interview two to three weeks after they received my resume. The interview was straightforward. First part behavioral and then followed by technical questions. It lasted half an hour. Very brief I would say. Some people got the internship after their first interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was offered an interview on campus. It was just one round. I talked to a software engineer for about an hour discussing some general technical knowledge questions that ranged from object-oriented design to operating systems to reading code and understanding what it does. I also had a question showing me some variations of how to implement a method and I was supposed to describe an issue with each solution.

    About a week later I got a call with an offer. Everyone I talked to was really friendly. They seem like a really great group of people to work with.
