    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Telstra (Melbourne) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I submitted the application online on Telstra website. I got a call from recruiter after couple of weeks. She asked basic background and some technical questions like have you worked on routers and switches, know any programming language etc

    Soon after, the interview was organised with the hiring managers. it was an hour long interview on MS Teams.

    They asked behavior based questions as well some technical questions. They asked me to draw an end-to-end network diagram. Both the interviews were really amazing and they made me feel very comfortable.

    After the interview, I never heard from anyone. Since my interview, the job was advertised four times. Not sure hoe many candidates were they hiring.
