    Interview Details

    Met shaw group contact at my college career fair. After some initial discussion agreed to interview the day after the career fair.

    I was mainly asked about my senior design project and courses I was taking. The interview was very informal and I left very comfortable with the reviewer.

    After speaking for a while I was offered a position at their Boston location. I am still considering the offer.

    Interview Details

    While you're reviewing the questions, since you don't know exactly what questions you will be asked, consider some situations you have dealt with at work or projects you have worked on. You may be able to use them to help frame responses.

    Prepare example that illustrate times when you have successfully solved problems or performed memorably. Also, prepare examples where you have dealt with difficult or challenging situations, because you will probably be asked about negative situations as well as positive ones.

    The examples will be useful to help you respond meaningfully during a behavioral interview.
