    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview

    It was pretty easy. Since i had an experience from Qualcomm, the questions were oriented towards that. Pretty easy to crack with right preparation and confidence. Glassdoor was really helpful in my preparation and It made me feel prepared during my interview. According to me, Nvidia focuses on logical concepts rather than theory that we study. Make sure you know the basisc well and observe every word the interviewer talks to you.

      The position required CPU architecture knowledge. I hadn't taken any of those courses, so interviewer asked only IC designing questoins.

    Interview

    Interviewed through career fair. Questions are given regarding computer architecture, C/C++ coding, circuit design, FSM. Though questions are seemingly not difficult, they are very difficult to answer comprehensively, and missing points will leave a negative expression.

    Interview

    Got an phone interview notification. Preparing for 2 days. All the questions are easy resume questions. They asked FIFO design, CMT design, set-up time and hold time violation. The whole process goes very smoothly and there is nothing special. But as I'm not gonna graduate this year, they declined me.
