    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    Campus Selection. Written, GD(more of a discussion on profile offered), Technical Interview, HR Interview.
    Since it was campus selection, and our university has good relations with Cisco, it was pretty general stuff like OSI model. They wanted to be sure i was interested in Computer networking as most of my projects were software related and my branch was CSE.

    Interview Questions

    • write a c program? well since the profile was of Computer Networks, i wasnt exactly expecting questions on Programming.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Bengaluru (India)) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I applied for the job online. Got a call from the hiring agency within a week. On the first day of the interview, there were two rounds: Communication Skills and Aptitude/Networking knowledge

    The Communication Skills round was a breeze. They just wanted to check if you could speak English in a neutral accent and with good grammar.

    Aptitude was a little tougher, but the questions were manageable. Being a CCNP helped me breeze past the Networking questions. I think i got 25 out of 25 correct :p

    I was then told within 15 minutes of completing these rounds that I was selected. I had a 1:1 technical interview with a senior TAC engineer where he grilled me on various topics. Passed that round and went to the managerial round where a Manager took my interview to test if I fit the cut.

    I got confirmation call from HR on the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • This was asked in the managerial round. Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?   1 Answer
