    Senior Hardware Engineer Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Based on my application at the Oracle career website, initially I was contacted by the Hiring Manager via a phone interview. It was more like what kind of candidate they are looking for, how my profile matches their requirement and what kind of positions I am looking for. Based on my interaction I was called for an on-site interview in a couple of weeks. The onsite interview had 5 rounds and since I was a new college graduate all the interviews were predominantly focused on my resume, my reserach and my internship at Intel Corporation.
