College Technical Interview

College Technical

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Northrop Grumman.

Interview Details – Was contacted about a month after applying online, heard back after my interview in one week. One phone interview with a few engineers I'd be working under. The questions were pretty straight forward, mostly explaining stuff off your resume: projects you've done, etc. Be sure to know the definition of every word in job description (reading the relevant Wikipedia article will do) For example, if "computation fluid dynamics" is somewhere in the job description and you don't know anything about CFD, you should at least take the time to read that Wikipedia article - and the linked articles throughout if you want to be safe.

Interview Question – Nothing particularly tough - just know your vocab.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation
