The job interview process can be difficult if you aren’t prepared. If you’re a professional looking for work in an engineering field, you want to be sure you put your best foot forward in your job interview. You know you have the skills to be a powerful asset in your field, but you just need to get the employer to see how incredible your potential is.


At One Tech Engineering in Minnesota, we are a Minneapolis-based technical recruiting firm that takes pride in connecting excellent candidates with great organizations. Follow these suggestions to nail your engineering interview.


1.      Research the company.

Take the time to do the legwork when it comes to understanding the company you are applying for. It’s a good idea to understand how your personal and professional values line up with the objectives of the organization you are applying for. This will give you something to draw on when the interviewer asks questions about how suited you are for their organization. It also will help prepare you in case the interviewer asks if you have any questions.


2.      Be sincere.

It is a mistake to pretend to be someone you aren’t for your interview.  Think about it from the employers’ point-of-view. They want to get to know the real you and what you have to offer their organization. Try to be the very best version of yourself, but don’t pretend to be someone you are not. It’s best to end up with an organization where you can bring your original contributions naturally.


3.      List your achievements.

Make sure you go over a list all of your best engineering achievements so that you are ready to talk about them naturally during the interview process. Don’t oversell it. Just let your shining achievements speak for you. Be prepared to discuss any unique projects you worked on and all of your best accomplishments. Consider how those could relate to a role with the organization you are applying for.
