The Initial Interview

Once your recruiter has had a chance to review your resume and gotten to know you a little better through brief chats or e-mail, they may wish to schedule an initial interview with you. These interviews are very casual and are usually held over the phone or on your campus. They are intended only to give us a general idea of your skills and interests and are usually not for specific open positions or teams.

Some things to keep in mind:

Be prepared to discuss your strengths, expertise, and any experience or previous jobs that appear on your resume.
If you're interested in one of our core technology positions-Software Design Engineer, Software Design Engineer in Test, or Program Manager-you may be asked some general problem-solving, design, or algorithm questions.
