    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Shaw Group in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Shaw contacted me for an interview for an internship position in their IT department. During the interview I talk to two different people. The first person I talk to was the main supervisor of the department I was interviewing for and the second was with the person I would be directly under. The questions were mainly focused on my resume and past experience. They asked a a lot about the classes I was taking or have taken and even my familiarity with POs and other financial documents. I ended up not getting the interview but I think it's because I lacked the accounting experience they were looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • Give an example of and explain a case study from your corporate finance class that you found most interesting. (After tell them my corporate finance class was my favorite class.)   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Shaw Group in October 2010.

    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.
