Conseils à la direction
Keep up the good work
J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +3 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Cisco Systems (Research Triangle Park, NC (États-Unis)) en août 2019.
In June, a recruiter from Cisco reached out to me for the role via email. As someone who doesn't shy away from opportunity, I figured, why not go and try? I've applied to the company previously, but was rejected.
There are three rounds for this role. The first interview was a phone interview with a recruiter, getting a feel of your interests and if the role may fit for you. The second interview was a WebEx interview that was primarily technical, with some personality questions sprinkled in. The last round involves going to Cisco's campus, doing 3 interviews all day.
The first half of my day was interviews, and the second half was going over the role, benefits and Q&A. It was about 45 candidates that were flown out to RTP. In each interview round, 9 candidates sat in a room in different tables, speaking to 1-2 employees from Cisco. I had Activity, Core and Technical, in that order.
For the Activity round, Cisco gave you a white paper of one of their Advanced technologies, with 25 minutes to analyze the paper. Afterwards, 2 Cisco employees would ask you questions about it. My white paper was on their Cisco Unified Communications Manager product.
The Core interview was definitely the easiest. It was with one Cisco manager, and we basically had a convo for the whole time I was there. I just tried to convey him the passion and desire I had for the position.
The Technical interview, in my opinion, will vary on who you interviews you. I feel I had extremely tough interviewers. They gave you a role playing situation, where one of the employees plays a mother that is calling you about her home network not working, and that she is trying to watch Netflix. They showed a diagram of the home network, and you had to troubleshoot the issue with her, keeping the fact that she is your mother, not a Network Engineer. One of the interviewers I felt was extremely sarcastic, and made me feel somewhat uncomfortable during the process. I got nervous at a certain point and mistakenly mispronounced something, and he repeated it back to me. I laughed it off, but I didn't appreciate it.
All in all, it was a learning experience. I studied extremely hard and used about all of the resources given to me in the OP. I showed the manager in the Core round my knowledge of their products, the company history, emerging technologies, etc. I said "I don't know" when I got faced with a question I couldn't answer in the Activity and Technical rounds.
