    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    I applied online since my school is not one of their main targeted ones. I got an email to interview within a week - probably due to having another brand name company on my resume.

    I had two phone interviews. Both technical, one more slightly relaxed and behavioral than the other, but still technical.

    I had looked at glassdoor's questions an hour before the interview and was lucky enough to have THE EXACT SAME questions asked. Got the job thanks to you guys!!
