Interview Details

Interviewed in Hyder b d (India) (Aug 2011 - took a day) We had a online exam which has 3 sections Quant,C skills and Technical section.Quant consists of 20 questions

which should be solved in 20 mins.In C Skills section you will be having 15 questions which should be solved in 30 mins.These questions will take too much tym.Every question has atleast 3 FOR loops and atleast 3 variables which are updated in each loop and the question will be to find the value of any of the variable after the execution of all loops.On seeing those questions any one will feel like why the hell i am here but we have to crack them to get into Qualcomm. :) Coming to the technical section you will be given 15 questions which should be answered in 20

mins.These questions mainly test your theoritical knowledge

Software,Communications,Design. As i have written for Software profile i got questions mainly on Operating

Systems

its better to say which in ur syllabus

Qualcomm comes with 3 profiles

ECE

its better to learn some more concepts rather than sticking to those which are thaught to you,i think

PERSONAL INTERVIEW (TECHNICAL) As all interviewers the one who interviewed me is also very cool and friendly.Checked my resume from top to bottom and then said that i have good track record.As i have kept al the projects,interns and workshops i have

atteneded and even i have kept the details of the 2 IEEE papers i have

thoughtlessly keep them in their resume for Qualcomm

resume itself.he asked about my fav subject and i said DS and oops 1)So he asked me to tell the algo of finding the kth largest number from the array with N numbers

use a max heap and he asked me why only max heap and why not other then i said the advantages of it and he

accepted 2)He then asked me how will the find the missing number in array having N numbers

N time complexity and said ok.

3)then he asked me about my papers and i explained them.

So

ppl who have published papers can

I

think the interviewer was very much impressed with my

i said that i will

I said the obvious answer with

this guy checked my resume as his father's will

and then asked me to introduce myself and then asked me to 1)Write the code for String reversal 2)Code for reversing 2 nodes in Likned list if a pointer to only the first node among them was given

simple but there is a problem in that u dont have the pointer to the node prev to the first node which is required.So i

asked whether that pointer is provided or not.As his intention is not to miss it

good question and said you know that pointr and i have written the simple code for reversal and said the algo how to

Then i was passed to next round.which is also not that tough

Even

it seems to be

he thought for some tym and said

reverse them even if the prev node pntr is not given.

After this he asked me about my internship and papers and asked for much more detailed explaination and i did Thats all for 2nd round

PERSONAL INTERVIEW (HR) The interviewer for this round is she

question is have you done any intern.I said yes and she asked me to tell about myself and about my papers and

projects

asked me if i want to know anything about QualComm for which i was waiting and fired few questions

the midnight when my interviews are over

till 1 30 and yes i was.

She

wished me as i entered the room and introduce herself and the first

and

then

It was 1 in

i am confident enough that i will be selected and waited for the result

Even
