Interview Question

General Architecture Intern Position Interview Houston, TX

which division of the company do you want to work for. On

  surface it seems like a reasonable question, but in the eyes of a recent graduate interviewing for an intern position - i would be lying if I had any basis to give a good answer to that.. and they should know that.

Interview Answer

1 Answer


I told them that as an intern fairly new out of school - I really have no basis to claim a department i want to work in. Rather, i have regard for the company as a whole and the quality of their work, and that i would frankly be excited to be a part of any of their divisions. To me this seemed like the most honest and intellectually complete answer, but it was pretty clear from facial expressions that they didn't appreciate it.
