Ace EE Internship Questions: Boeing, IBM, LM

In summary: For example, if you're asked about your strengths, could you share one or two examples? That would give the interviewer a feel for who you are and show that you have thought about this question. In summary, IBM is interested in hearing about your school projects and your semiconductor theory class. They are also looking for someone detail oriented and able to answer questions about the semiconductor fab process.

These are a list of questions I have been asked, thought you perhaps could benefit from it somehow. I've been accepted to 2/3 of the companies below, so if you can ace these questions in the interview, you're golden. Good luck!

Here are a couple of quick notes from someone who has been been on both sides of the process.
  • Be on time and better to be a little early. Leaving a hiring manager cooling his heels while waiting for you is a good way to not get the job. Traffic happens so plan accordingly. Unless there's a major weather event like a tornado or snowstorm, you probably don't have a good reason for being late.
  • Don't submit a resume with glaring spelling mistakes. I've seen a lot more than I would expect in interviews.
  • A thank you email or card (got one once and we hired him) says a lot about a person's character.
  • Be able to answer questions such as "what are your strengths" and "what are your weaknesses"? For the second one, I always try to state a weakness that I can turn into a strength. For example, I tend to be detailed oriented which sometimes impacts others if they need something quick-and-dirty. Being detail oriented is actually a strength that a company wants but, in this case, it's listed as a weakness. I've now given them two strengths instead of what they asked for. :oldwink:
