    Interview Questions

    • None. Everything asked was based on resume details, coursework and research.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None. This was during the recession and the salary was on the higher end of my other offers. In hindsight, I could have negotiated for a bit more, but I won't ever know!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Folsom, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and got the replied in a few weeks. They only provided 6 to 9 months internship which made me to push my graduation day late. During the phone interview he asked over 20 questions includes computer architecture(very basic ones), verilog, programming. The guy who interviewed me was really bad at asking questions. He asked questions without pointing out which level I should went through. Things like "what's the different between SRAM and DRAM". I didn't know if he wanted from transistor level or computer architecture level or cost level. He even got the blocking and non blocking question wrong himself and blamed me got the "wrong answer"......Overall, easy questions.

    Interview Questions

    • What's the difference between blocking and non blocking assignments in verilog?   Answer Question
