Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Arista Networks (Singapore) in Aug 2021

Interview

Direct application , interview fixed within the week with HR and hiring manager. Interview focused on technical questions even though it’s a presales role. The interview took nearly 2 hours . The company should look at its branding and go to market strategy rather than hiring scholars or researchers on wifi technology. Technical proficiency will not bring you business and client recognition!
