    Interview Details

    I applied online on the careers site. I had one phone interview with a manager. He went through my resume briefly, asked me what I like about technology, where I see myself in the future, what my interests are, and specifics about projects I had worked on. I was surprised that there were not more technical questions.

    Interview Details

    I went to the career fair offered at my school and dropped off my resume at Qualcomm. About 2 weeks later I was contacted by a recruiter who scheduled an interview for me on campus. It was a one time interview and I got an offer less than a week after. I got 2 coding questions and one puzzle. The first one was to identify bugs on some simple code. Second one was to return the most frequent character in a given string.
