Graduate Engineer Interview

Graduate Engineer
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Keppel Offshore & Marine in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for the position during the career fair in campus. Within a month, I received a call from the HR who asked about my internship experience, my interest and why I want to join the company. Then I was scheduled for an interview which was held 2 days later.

For the interview, which lasted for 30 mimutes, I was interviewed by a HR personnel and an Assistant General Manager (Operations). Questions asked were general and the interviewers were looking for people who are passionate in joining the industry and are able to handle stress in the production department, esprcially when tight datelines have to be met. The AGM also shared about the challenges of the job and mentioned about the environment and working hours.

Interview Details – First met with the recruiters at a university career fair. Very friendly recruiters most of which were alums of the university that I attend. two round interviews, one HR officer, two engineer and one engineer is senior section manager, very straight foreward. But need to think about some questions about long career life in the company.
