Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Interview Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Not very clear but major role players were CPI and Projects.
Interview Tips
Do write your area of interest clearly and your major projects you are highlighting in your resume should be of that area, otherwise they might interview you for wrong area and you might miss out as few students did. So be clear about that. And don’t think you can get away with casual or fuzzy answers.
Round 2

Interview

Interview Experience
Technical Interview was related to the field they have shortlisted you. There were 3 panel for EE guys,1 for shortlisted candidate for Analog Area, 1 for shortlisted candidate for Digital and 1 for Architecture. For me it was mixed of Analog and digital with some device also. Questions regarding Short channel effects were asked. Then questions related to Diff-Amp were asked. Then there were questions on Digital logic, need of C-Mos , Charge sharing and distribution in C-Mos devices, Capacitance curve and its region. And then there were questions on Timing Issues, skew, jitter and some tricky question revolving around timing analysis. Questions regarding data transfer and propagation and read-write methodology were also asked. It was not about finding an answer it was finding how depth and clear knowledge a candidate has and what is his/her thinking process. If you get stuck somewhere while answering they will give you hints but don't seek hints for every answers.
Round 3

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Give instance when you stood up for your belief and convinced others to go along with you
  • Question 2: How did you stopped someone doing something that is not right...?
Interview Experience
HR questions were the usual questions which are generally asked everywhere, revolving around judging my character. Few scenarios were given which conflicts between ethics and personal gains.

    Skill Tips
    Since I did courses of all areas of VLSI from devices to digital I was able to answer the wide range of questions put in front of me. I never tried to make a guess, I simply said that some things I forgot, but I was able to say that because most of the questions I was able to answer. Also, I prepared HR questions beforehand and had some instances in my mind to quote when put under those scenario. The probable reasons for my selection were a good CPI , clarity about subject and wide range of topics I covered duringmy courses.
    Resources

    Preparation materials

    Books
    • Rabaey for Digital,
    • Semiconductor device from Tsividis,
    • EE610 notes for Analog,
    General Tips
    I always intended to find a core job in semiconductor industry and for the same I planned my curriculum inaccordance with it. I took all courses related to VLSI area EE dept has to offer which included digital, analog and devices. I learnt some architecture also with the help of my batch-mates who have done CSE architecture course.<br />
    For those who are planning to get a core job my suggestions would be: Maintain a good CPI as it is the first criteria they will shortlist you. <br />
    Have good understanding of the subject. Do study devices also as companies frequently ask questions based on devices and practice from yourself. <br />
    Don't rely on SPO as they will not be preparing you for core companies. Do get information from your seniors about the preparations. If you have done your courses sincerely then it will take about 1-2 months to complete the preparations. And prepare along with your batchmates aiming for same area as it will help everyone. Don't try to go alone.

      Round 1

      Technical Interview

      Interview Experience
      Candidates for the interview were shortlisted based on their CGPA and Projects. The number of interviews for a candidate varied. I had two technical interviews. In the first interview I was asked to write code in C for problems such as manipulating bits in certain positions in an integer, finding max in an array and optimizing for scalability. After that I was asked questions on C . I was asked the meaning of "volatile" keyword and what the compiler does to take care of it. Then I was asked questions on OOP. He asked me to give examples for polymorphism. I was asked to explain the terms : virtual function,abstract class,virtual constructor ,virtual destructor(which is not there),static variable, static function(in C and C++). In the second round I was asked questions on Inheritance.After that he asked about interrupt processing and what role processor plays in it. After that he asked questions on virtual memory and caching(not much depth).
      Interview Tips
      Be clear about concepts in C and C++ particularly object oriented programming (OOP).
      Round 2

      HR Interview

      Interview Experience
      I did not have a separate HR interview. I was asked HR questions at the end of the second interview. I was asked two questions on "integrity" which Intel takes very seriously.Those were:
       1.Suppose I and my team have gone to attend a presentation in some other company which wants to sell its services to Intel.At the end of it I am offered gifts(anything).Should I accept/reject it and Why.
       2.Suppose Intel is organizing some event and I am told to inquire and arrange some catering services for it.Suppose I know a person(friend of mine) who is ready to give discount for the service.Should I accept/reject that and why.
      Then I was asked about my strengths , weaknesses(and what I am doing to improve upon them) Then I was asked whether I would go for further education. Then he asked whether I would be willing to work on Software Testing side. Lastly he asked whether I had any problems in relocating to Bangalore.
      Interview Tips
      Be clear in thought and answer as per the situation. Too much diplomacy or too much straight forwardness can be dangerous too.

          The interview lasted for around 20-25 minutes. I had mentioned my interests to be logic design and computer architecture, basically
          the hardware profile, in my introduction. So I was asked some questions on architecture like ILP, Superscalar and out-of-order processors, If Intel’s processors are out-of-order, etc. the entire flow of questions was based on my answers.After these, I was asked HR type questions like my interests apart from academics, where do I see myself 5 years down the line, why not PhD , if I would like to work in US, etc.The interviewer had read my resume thoroughly and probably was impressed by it, and I was not asked any questions based on my resume. Good CPI and all courses and projects strongly aligning with Intel’s  work was strong point in my selection.

            General Tips
            If you are targeting core companies like Intel, choose the right courses and thesis  (like Microelectronics/VLSI) in your third year and do them sincerely.  Do not mention that you want to do your PhD.Intel does not prefer B.Tech Students, so watch out for that while choosing your target companies in placements.
            Motivation for applying
            I had strong interests in Computer architecture and VLSI. So basically I was lookingfor a job in hardware profile in semiconductor industry and Intel is the biggest name in the semiconductor domain, thus making it my first choice.
