    Interview

    Ik werd geïnterviewd voor een positie als instapniveau analoge IC designingenieur bij het Bunnik kantoor van Broadcom. Het interview duurde een hele dag. Het begon om 10 uur 's ochtends en duurde tot bijna 6 uur 's avonds. In totaal waren er 7 technische rondes en 1 ronde met personeelszaken (allemaal één op één). In het grootste gedeelte van de technische interviews werden mij vragen gesteld over mijn masterscriptie, die ik allemaal heel goed kon beantwoorden en waar ik heel goede opmerkingen over kreeg.
