Chances of landing Apple ASIC RTL design interview?
Couple of months ago I had initial screening with 4 different hiring managers at Apple. One invited me for onsite round of interviews, and after the onsite this manager was also willing to make me an offer. However I decided to not proceed as the role although relevant, was not what I wanted to pursue at this point of my career. Let's say it was less hands on as I would have liked. I turned down this role fairly quickly and gave very legitimate reasons that the recruiter and hiring manager seemed to buy.
Since then I haven't heard back from any recruiter and even internal referrals aren't helping. I heard from an former colleague that it's the end of financial year at Apple and managers are yet to figure out hiring targets for the next year. I have been wondering whether there is any point in pursuing Apple at this point or my time and would be be better spent looking elsewhere. Like many here, I would also love to work for Apple and am fairly confident of doing well at the interview. I would like to hear from Apple folks if I have a chance of landing a relevant interview, after turning down an offer.
