    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Synaptics in January 2013.

    Interview

    I met the Synaptics recruiting team at a career fair and was interviewed the following day. Waited 5 weeks for a response, and I sent a follow up email. Within two days, I was contacted for a phone interview, was then contacted 2 weeks after with an offer for the internship.
