    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    It was highly technical, meeting with several different engineers and managers all of whom had several questions on a broad range of engineering topics including electrical circuit analysis and semiconductor behavior. The interviewers did understand that a lot of that information might be a bit "dusty" so they would push you in the right direction if you got stuck, but most questions weren't too difficult.
