CE - Interview

This thread is a sequel to the following thread -
https://www.crazyengineers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=388

Let us start the game -

Scene: CE Boardroom

Characters:
You & I
https://www.crazyengineers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=388
You want to work for CE Labs & I'm conducting your HR Interview.

Rules:-
  1. I (The Big K) will ask typical HR questions.
  2. The candidate (you) will have to read the question and try to answer it in your own words. No copy - paste from anywhere.
  3. You get only 'one' chance to answer. Your answer has to be 'your own'. Write the answer the way you'd speak in a boardroom. Do not use 'long trail of dots' to indicate your thought process.
  4. I and other experienced CEans will then comment on the answer.
Let's not waste time. Here's the first Question -

K: Mr/Ms <your name> Tell me about yourself.

Good start Aditi. Now in a typical HR interview, here is how I'd grill you -

-->
Aditi,
What kind of music do you listen to? OR Who is your favorite singer?
Who is your favorite chess player?
(for above questions, be prepared to answer few more related questions)

Or, how would you define 'successful electronics and communication engineer'?
<--

Make sure that your answer will lead to many related questions. Therefore, if you talk about Chess, be prepared to have a good GK about 'Chess'. Even the simplest "I like listening to music" , could lead to a long trail of questions. Let us wait for more answers. CEans, feel free to comment.

I edited personal information. Please do not mind.

A very Good Afternoon Sir
I am Aashima, persuing my degree of B.Tech. in electronics and communication stream, 5th semester. I have a good family background. I have an elder brother working. I have always been a placid person by nature and I like to take life the way it comes. I aspire to be a mentally and financially satiated person in life because I believe these two things are the basic requirements of todays life and I am willing to make any possible efforts to achieve that.
27 Oct 2006
Now "Tell Me About Yourself" must be tweaked depending on the interview. Aashima's answer is good for HR Interview. Do not forget to mention about your education and work experience if any.

Let us have more responses before we move on to the next question. It would be great to have comments from CEans who have interviewed candidates during their professional career.

Good evening sir,

I am Jayaprakash.I completed my B.Tech in Electrical and electronics engineer. I did my schooling in amalorpavam higher secondary school ,pondicherry.My father is a business man and mom is home maker.I have one sibbling .My hobbies are net surfing and travelling .My aim to become a succesful power systems engineer .My objective is to get challenging and lucrative career .
27 Oct 2006
My comment for Jayaprakash's responce will be similar to post#3.

Let me not miss out on this point - Never start your introduction with "Myself <your name>". Its incorrect English. "I am <your name>" is the what you must use.

Let's now move on to question#2 ->

Following is yet another very common question asked in any HR interview -

Q.> Tell me why do you want to work for CrazyEngineers (or the company you are applying to)?

CrazyEngineers doesn't stick a person to a particular field. Learn while work is what it offers, you can surely learn from other sections while working for one of them and as i said i like doing things differently Crazyengineers let employees do things in their own special way.

Well I liked neha's second answer.You are good in your first answer too but what i felt is lack of professionalism. So try and improve the same answer in a different way.
For eg 'I aspire to be a Computer Engineer working in a reputed company like yours'.
Instead you can talk about what you want specifically and thats exactly what the job profile offers.Though what you have answered is also impressive but it is more generalised.

Good to know that someone found this thread useful. Let's revive it. Before throwing more questions, I'd like to mention one point to everyone who is preparing for the interview -

-> Be careful about what you write in your resume!

At least, don't lie! You'll get caught. For example, if you write that you know C++ or "Reading Technology Magazines" is your hobby, be ready to face questions on it. There's no escape. Don't make a mistake.

I'll update the thread soon with more questions & feedback. I'd ask other CEans to share experiences/knowledge regarding the same.

We've started a wonderful offering called 'CE-Interviews' ( check out the details in this thread -

https://www.crazyengineers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=657 )

As we realized, it would make sense to prepare a general set of guidelines with help of seasoned interviewers. A guide is under development and will be launched on CE soon. 😀

Let's hold on for some more time. In the mean time, I'd request all CEans to contact Mayur ( mayur at crazyengineers dot com ) for a free mock interview. Find all details in the above mentioned thread 😀
