Application Advice:

Understanding what Autodesk does is fundamental; not just because of helping with the interview, but knowing if the job you think you're applying for is the right job for you.

Having an understanding of CAM rather than CAD is useful - even if you haven't used it much before - look at the software we use, how we use it, what is different/unique about each package. Know what NC Code is, what Machine Tools do, and show primarily how are able to not just work in a team, but use self-initiative to work individually on something and create/design/develop something. A lot of the role is being given a task and trusted to get on with it and use your own initiative to carry it out, whilst asking for help where needs be.

Interview Advice:

Be confident, but concise. We do a lot of presentations here and confidence with the ability to articulate yourself clearly and effectively is key. However, too much 'waffle' won't help, and the ability to get your point across effectively is crucial.

Again, understand the role, what we do, what software we use, and what we are doing globally in driving innovation and being at the forefront of technology; at the end of the day if you don't know what we do and who is benefiting from our products, you won't be able to convince us that you can help add to our knowledge base.

Lastly, show you can be a friendly, confident and sociable person, it's good to know someone will not just work well in a team, but also be a pleasure to work with, talk to, and contribute to the social working environment we have here. A lot of the job is making connections and knowing the right people to help you, networking and forming those connections is key to doing this, so show your human side.

Application Advice:

Successful applicants tend to have strong problem-solving skills and a STEM background, so try to exhibit this in your application. Also mention any programming experience or projects that you've been involved with in the past.

Interview Advice:

Prepare for a mix of problem-solving questions and the usual interview questions.

Application Advice:

Make sure to appear well rounded, the environment in the office is a friendly and casual one. We much prefer to take someone who has hobbies and does things outside of their academic life than someone who has forsaken their personal/social life purely to focus on academia.

Interview Advice:

Same as the application, put yourself across as a rounded person. Don't worry about saying "I don't know" to a question or two, they care less that you know all the answers and more about the way you think.

Application Advice:

Don't think that you have to have a formal background in Computer Science, as many people here have Maths or Physics degrees.
Having some programming experience helps, particularly object-oriented programming. However, I think that the most important things are: having a solid mathematical background, being able to think logically, and having a positive attitude towards learning new things!

Application Advice:

Don't be afraid about not having a Computer Science background or that you aren't a C++ guru. What seems to be important is a solid Mathematical background and you are willing to learn new skills.

Application Advice:

Read up on some C++ before the assessment day. Practicing some mathematical thinking in some way is also probably a good idea.

Interview Advice:

Having a reasonable grasp of object-oriented programming is probably a good idea.
(Though this does not need to be very detailed or anything, an understanding of the motivations behind OOP and a bit about how to apply it will probably suffice).

Research the core products that Delcam owns. Understand what they do and what industries they are used in.

Interview Advice:

Asked about education - how i felt about the route I had taken to get to where I was at the time.

Application Engineer, PowerINSPECT at Autodesk

Application Advice:

Keep an open mind. With competency in CAD/CAM systems becoming definitive to the value of an engineer, Delcam is the perfect place to launch a career.

Interview Advice:

Show enthusiasm, ask questions, we are not a company of pretense. Co-workers take pride in helping one another and being available. You will not be facing a panel of "suits" but instead active employees in your field, people who, if you are successful, will become your mentors.

Application Advice:

There are two tests to pass at the assessment day. The coding test is best approached with good knowledge of c++ pointers and ideally linked lists.

Interview Advice:

The interview focused on a geometry question that was designed to demonstrate my thought process more than the answer.

Application Advice:

Make sure you are interested in software engineering and know basic C++ things like pointers. You don't need to know any C++ to apply but it certainly helps.

Best:

Good Work/Life Balance
Many international travel opportunities
Being at the forefront of technological/software innovation
Sociable working environment
Diverse array of departments you are exposed to
Generous benefits/schemes that I use often
Helpful, sociable colleagues

Worst:

Not able to choose which department I worked in/type of work I did
Not always a plan in place for work you do, it depends on the workload at the time or the time of year which is busiest/quietest
When given where you'll travel to, wasn't a lot of notice given, within 12 weeks of joining I was off to the USA - which I loved - but the lack of notice made it hard to plan

Best:

The company cares about its workers.

Worst:

There is currently somewhat of a habit of changing things at the top, it rarely affects the developers that much but recently the company did kill off what I thought was a very good product.
