The most reliable way for Westinghouse to project how you'll perform in the future is to examine what you've already done. Most interview questions will relate to your educational background, work experience, skill set, and career goals. Your answers should be concise and clear. Sample skill- and behavior-based questions include:
- What do you feel is your strongest technical skill and how have you been able to use it?
- Tell me about the toughest problem you've had to solve and how you went about developing a solution. How long did it take you to commit to the solution?
- How do you ensure that all parties involved with a project, team, etc. that you are leading are kept informed of progress, issues, etc.?
- Sometimes it's easy to "get-in-over-our-heads." Describe some situations where you had to request help or assistance on a project, assignment, etc.
- Give an example of where you changed someone's opinion to your way of thinking. What approach did you use?
- What thought process or processes do you use to decide whether an idea is worthy of consideration? How do you communicate your reactions? Give some examples.
Practice your answers beforehand to give real thought to yourself and your abilities. Such preparation will help you to be more comfortable during the interview. Even if we don't ask the specific questions above, the insight gained will be a benefit.
