    Senior Verification Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at XtremeEDA (Ottawa, ON) in June 2012.


    After submitting my resume I was offered an opportunity for an in-person interview. The interview consisted of describing technical details on my resume, in detail. The interviewer was experienced in interviewing and, I think, could tell if any exaggeration was involved. Always be honest about what you can and can't do, and where you need to learn more. That tells the interviewer more about your integrity than anything.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were about detailed technical questions about things on my resume. The interviewer was technically capable so discussion was easy.   1 Answer
