Systems engineers work closely with systems analysts to maintain a company's IT system by developing the operating systems that run computers. Expect to be quizzed on a variety of technical questions that will test your knowledge of how computer systems work. Employers prefer candidates with a bachelor's degree in an engineering field and previous experience with technology.
Mostly questions about my previous experience and the sort of work I would be comfortable with. They asked if I had experience with writing scripts for FPGA (in addition to the responsibilities of the position I was interviewing for).
I answered honestly (which was a "no," for writing scripts) and with enthusiasm. I was able to connect with each interviewer on either a hobby or education institute in common.
