"Try to think of different situations that you have been in and how you responded to that situation. Know your final year project well and be able to explain it in detail. Be confident but not arrogant."
Graduate, Dublin
"The best advice is to be honest, be yourself, have a natural interest in electronics and a genuine drive for self development. If you have all that you will be very likely to succeed."
Graduate, Leixlip
"If you're going for an engineering or technical position, familiarise yourself with the basics of statistics and process control, (e.g. mean, mode median, control limits, WECO rules, etc.)."
Graduate, Dublin
"Know your Final Year Project extremely well and be able to talk in-depth about all the skills listed on your CV."
Graduate, Leixlip
"Read up on your CV and make sure you know your thesis inside out. The interview is not especially difficult. Try not to feel overwhelmed and remember to show confidence."
Graduate, Leixlip
"It is always a good idea to polish your technical skills and practice innovative thinking."
Graduate, Leixlip
"Focus your answers on displaying how you were part of a team and how you helped the team solve a problem. Make sure you have questions to ask your interviewer (e.g. what do you do in your daily job; what's the most challenging aspect of their job, what the future holds for the company - know something about the place and be able to discuss it!). Dress smartly and relax."
Graduate, Leixlip
"In the interview, be honest, have a natural interest and curiosity for electronics and you are very likely to succeed."
