Interview advice from VMware hiring managers

"The interview process is a two-way street, as much as you are being interviewed for team fit and suitability for the role, you are also vetting the company and the team you would potentially work with. You’ll do your best work and have the most fun in a team where you feel you belong and when you’re invested in the success of the company and the team as a whole. We are looking for individuals who are enthusiastic, passionate and have excellent potential rather than a specific skill set. During the course of your conversations across interviews, please make sure to display that side of you!"
