    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    I was at a booth with a manager for the company. Overall, the experience went well. Honestly, this was very nerve-wracking given that the hiring manager was staring at me the entire time to finish my problem. It is difficult for me to work under pressure, so that is why I found it challenging for me.
