    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Silicon Labs (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Met Silicon Labs representatives at a career fair at my university. Had a technical chat with an applications engineer and after talking for about 10-15 minutes, he said that I should expect a call within a couple of months. The representative was very professional and friendly. Roughly 3 months later, I got an email from them asking me to schedule for a telephonic interview. A couple of weeks later I had an hour long interview with an engineering hiring manager. He started with behavioral questions and then continued to ask questions about projects on my resume. Then, he tested me a bit on RF basics. The questions were fairly straightforward. Overall, the interviewer was very professional and seemed to be more interested in the methodology of how I got the answers than the answers themselves (which I consider a sign of a good company culture).

    Interview Questions

    • In-depth questions about projects related to the job description (E.g: Since my projects were mainly in antenna design, I was asked, how do I start designing antennas and which starting parameters do I take into account before starting my design)   1 Answer
