Job Seeking for Engineers #3: Interviewing

No Ratings

Course Description 
In this interactive webinar, we will address what you need to do before, during, and after an interview to land the job you’re pursuing. Learners will have the chance to practice answering common questions that are presented in interviews, as well as plan out their own mini-stories so they are fully prepared for any and all interview questions. We will also discuss what questions you can ask that demonstrate why you would be the perfect fit for a specific opportunity. Finally, learners will be able to recognize “challenge stimuli” that interviewers inject into the interview equation and gain insight into how to handle these pressure-packed “what if” scenarios. This course is as part of SWE's Job Seeking for Engineers web series.

Learning Outcomes
By the end of this course, you should be able to:
  • Answer common interview questions and prep for “challenge stimuli”.
  • Develop mini-stories for each of your skills and problems you have solved in the past in order to be able to answer every question you are given at an interview.
  • Identify what questions to ask during an interview to showcase your talent, passion, can-do attitude, and abilities.
