    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dell (Wellesley, MA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Overall generic. The objective is to let the interviewee speak as much as possible and the interviewer objective is to listen to identify if there is a fit for a random projects in the pipe line. I was interviewed for some expected projects but later was informed that I was being reassigned to other projects and not what I was initially presented.
