    Campus Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at TSMC.

    Interview Details

    The interview was for the campus representative position, so it was not hard. The HR basically went though most of the things I wrote on my resume, and most questions I was asked were related to my resume, so if don't make something up, you will be fine. And they asked me some behavioral questions too, very typical ones like how you resolve a confrontation.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at TSMC in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with a senior engineer and manager. They asked me about my academic research and skills. They revealed they are developing in-house tools which might fit my background and strength. After the first interview, I got another phone interview with HR. Later on, I got the offer through email.

    Interview Questions
    • I wanted to understand the projects they are running. However, maybe due to NDA, they did not let me know what they wanted me to do. I eventually understand the assignment after on board.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at TSMC in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    They will match the job vacancy by your online resume, but normally HR does't understand what you research or there is no match inside the company. In this case, they basically match you by the title of your department. (E.g. Chemistry should get someone related to chemical vapor deposition). It's just an intern, so they usually wouldn't take you seriously. They just want to find someone potential for the future.

    Interview Questions
    • Because manager normally won't have time to review your resume, you need to make your own introduction. They will pick one part of your description to ask. So be prepared about everything you mentioned in your introduction.   Answer Question
