    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Sun Microsystems in December 2009.

    Interview

    submitted my resume through a referral, it took some time for the hiring manager to call me , once I was called, I initially had to go through a written test, and 2 rounds of face to face interviews.
    I was not too confident, but as such the interview went on well
