    Interview Tomorrow

    So I have an interview to be an Entry-Level Software Developer Intern. I'm really kind of nervous and don't know what to expect. Has anyone been through this process before?

    From the employers perspective, all they're looking for is somebody with initiative, applicable skills and good communication. Save your worrying for when you apply for a high-ranking position one day!

    I wish you luck and sincerely hope you get the position!

    I went through an interview last week, was offered a job and I accepted. On the tour of the plant I asked to take a closer look at some equipment, the interviewer made a couple rude comments about my eyesight. To make a long story short, he changed his mind about giving me the job. I wear thick glasses and have had several eye operations over the years. I was born 3 moths premature and it damaged my eyes. I have worked and drove a car all my life. As soon as I got home from the interview I filed complaints against the company for discrimination.

    It was a crumby job, the factory was dark as a cave and it looked like a very unsafe place to put it mildly but it was the principal of the thing. Usually I just take this kind of thing in stride but this guy was so dirty the way he acted I though he deserved to be investigated and be put on the spot for his actions.

    You may get some trick questions such as:

    "Tell us what you feel is your greatest weakness."

    "Well, mental illness runs in my family and I have to struggle every day to focus on what I am doing. So, I would say that I am easily distracted."

    Never heard back from them.

    slooksterpsv; Good luck !

    IF you want the position. You have done the homework as to what the company does ?
    The interview will be to see if you can fill the niche to preform the requirements of the position - maybe now or "someday" .
    Keep in mind it is a global society, and you will be required to demonstrate that you are upward mobile. Job stability is no longer a guarantee, security is but a scant 5-7 years and then you are looking at the transition stage.
    Entry-Level Software Developer Intern
    Obviously, programming skills and what you have written and co-produced to this time. Communication skills are paramount.
    How well do you work with others .

    A positive attitude and can do !

    Been there,
    glad I no longer have to deal with it

    Re: Interview Tomorrow

    It was an interesting interview to say the least. They had different expectations, but I showed them I understand the concepts. That, I feel, impressed them. Where its for a promotion within the company I'm working at, we'll see how things go. I have another round on Monday and if I did everything correctly or proved my concepts, they'll try me out for a month. If I don't do well within that month, I'll go back to my current position.
