Re: O/T Engineering Job interview, any pointers ??????
I'll add my 2 cents.
I have been interviewed and have conducted interviews. The interviewer maybe as bad at interviews as you are. Be kind and helpful.
people are looking for someone to be a "good fit" for the position. And you want to make sure that you get a position that fits you.
"good fit" that's the catch fraise.
they are not looking for the smartest engineer in the world, so don't try to prove it in the interview. But, be technically competent.
As for written exams, they shouldn't. it opens them up to litigation. ( never tell them this, just an FYI when you do interviews some day). A test is often used, but the interviewer will right down an evaluation of how you answer.
I have seen a problem lately with engineers that are good at the school thing. And aren’t really interested or good at practicing engineering.
PS i'm terible at interviews, I always choke.
