1.
What do you know about Qualcomm?
Your answer should demonstrate that you have done your research on Qualcomm and have an understanding of the challenges Qualcomm faces, the goals they're trying to achieve, and the market in which the company operates.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I've always been inspired by what Qualcomm has achieved. The remarkable growth and the overwhelmingly positive press has always made Qualcomm stand out in the telecommunications industry. I know that you have been in business for XX years and that you've seen an XX% growth in the past 18 months due to your innovation and focus on a progressive culture. I am excited to work with such a progressive company."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Your company has an impressive industry reputation, and I would be thrilled to learn from your leadership team. From my research, I find that you are very involved in the community and put a lot of efforts into developing your employees."
2.
Why do you want to work for Qualcomm?
The interviewer wants assurance that your values align with the values and vision of Qualcomm. Assure the interviewer that this role would be a progressive step in your career and be sure to express your excitement!

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have always appreciated the values at Qualcomm and the way you treat your customers. Qualcomm shows consistency in branding and your commitment to putting the customer first is a rare find. This commitment is very much in line with my customer service philosophy and the type of culture I am looking for in my next opportunity."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am impressed by your mission, and I love how much of an impact you make on the local community. Winning the community Humanitarian Award in 2016 was a remarkable achievement that stands out to me. In addition to all of this, I want to work for your company because you offer the growth, development, and leadership opportunities for which I have been looking. I see a long-term fit here which is important to me."

3.
Describe your knowledge of Agile project management. How does it differ to other project management methodologies?
The interviewer would like to see that your knowledge is strong enough that you can compare project management methodologies. Discuss your current knowledge of Agile project management.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Most of the projects I've been part of have used Agile methodology. In my opinion, Agile project management gives greater flexibility to pivot without requiring substantial changes and reworking. The risk is also reduced as the project is completed in iterative steps, with testing along the way, rather than waiting until the end of the project."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I have not been part of many projects that use the Agile methodology so my understanding could be stronger than it currently is. From my understanding, Agile encourages more of a collaborative environment with faster response time. In my current position, we more often utilize XPM, Extreme Project Management. This choice is because many of our projects are short with a tight deadline and XPM is most effective for those types of project plans."
4.
When have you given back to the community?
The interviewer would like further insight into how altruistic you are. Give the interviewer at Qualcomm a deeper insight into your values by discussing the ways that you give back. Perhaps you volunteer at a local charity, donate a portion of your paycheck to a specific organization, clean up around the parks on the weekend, or help your family with their needs. Be sure to use a recent example as you do not want to lean on volunteer experience from 12 years ago.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Being an active participant in my community is second nature to me. There are a lot of people who are much less fortunate than I am and it's important for me to set a good example for my kids. When I was younger, I loved to travel, particularly in South East Asia where I volunteered with Habitat for Humanity. More recently I support my kids to sponsor a child. I also think it's great that Qualcomm has volunteer days for staff to give back to the community. It's one of the things that attracted me to your organization."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I believe in the importance of giving back so, for that reason, I spend every other Friday evening volunteering at our local soup kitchen. I was raised to believe in the importance of volunteerism. Does Qualcomm have a volunteer committee in place? If not, this is something that I would be very interested in heading up one day."
5.
Tell us about your experience in telecommunications.
The interviewer is looking for an answer that highlights your comprehensive industry experience. Take a few minutes to walk the interviewer through your related education, passion, and enthusiasm for the telecommunications industry.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"My passion for telecommunications comes from a love of computers. I've worked with computers, building them and deconstructing them, since my teenage years. After I finished school, I went to college and completed a degree in computer science. Since graduating, I've worked as a Telecommunications Specialist. I love this work as it's full of challenges and problems to solve. It provides me with the opportunity to learn something new every day."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I recently graduated with my diploma in Telecommunications Technology, with a focus on computer applications. I completed a 3-month internship this summer with (Company ABC), and I am now looking for my first true employment opportunity in the telecommunications industry. I am excited about this potential role with Qualcomm because it will offer me the chance to grow my career with a well-respected organization."
