    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely strenuous and difficult. Interviewed with multiple people that had great but firm personalities and presence. Although it was difficult, if you keep your nerve and truly understand what you can bring to the able, the interview can be easy. The best thing about the interview was that it was very straight forward.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Semtech in February 2016.

    Interview

    Let candidates know - A pet peeve of many job seekers is that they are left hanging after an interview, or they are promised follow-up that never comes. If the candidate is a good fit, be clear about what the next steps will be. And if the candidate is not a good fit, make the call as soon as possible out of courtesy.
    Compare notes and reach consensus - The post-interview evaluation is the time to compare notes and advance the hiring decision. Each interviewer should be prepared to back up remarks and recommendations with specific examples and notes from the interview.
    Deepen the questions as you narrow the field - Subsequent interviews with finalists are valuable opportunities to learn more about them. Consider recreating a real business challenge the individual would be facing.
