ENGINEERING JOB DESCRIPTION, QUALITIES AND ATTRIBUTES


To become a solid, dependable and competent engineer, you will need to demonstrate extensive working knowledge of the engineering field you specialize in, be dependable and capable of solving complex problems, be a good communicator, be able to follow rules and procedures and also operate with safety at the forefront of your mind at all times.

ENGINEERING SKILLS, QUALITIES AND ATTRIBUTES

Creative & Technical Thinking:

You will need to utilize your creative mind and experiences to come up with innovative and sometimes technical solutions to problems whilst also creating plans for new and exciting engineering projects.

Mechanical Comprehension and Practical Abilities:

Having the ability to understand and implement mechanical concepts is extremely important to the work of an engineer.

Problem Solving Capabilities:

Engineers are efficient problem solvers. You will need to use skills and experience to seek new and innovative ways to solve complex problems faced by your employer on a daily basis.

Team Working Skills:

Most people think engineers work alone, and whilst there are times you will do this, the majority of your time will be spent working other engineers and stakeholders who have vested interest in the engineering project or tasks you are assigned to.

Project Management Skills:

Engineers are, essentially, technical project managers. As part of this role you will need to utilize effective project management skills to ensure all engineering works are carried out on time, to budget and to strict safety rules and procedures.

Communication Skills:

Whether you are communicating your ideas to a team or CEO, or if you are explaining the pros and cons of an engineering solution to an important client, you will need to demonstrate effective communication and listening skills as an engineer.

5 KEY TIPS AND STRATEGIES FOR PASSING YOUR ENGINEERING JOB INTERVIEW

TIP #1 – During your engineering interview, you will be asked three different sets of interview question: motivational, behavioral and research-based. Motivational questions will assess you ‘motivations’ for wanting to become an engineer, and also why you have chosen their company. Behavioral questions focus on your past experiences that are relevant to the job description, and research-based questions assess your knowledge and understanding of the role of the organization you want to join. Be sure to prepare for all 3 question types during your engineering interview preparation.

TIP #2 – Safety and an ability to follow strict rules and procedures are absolutely paramount to any engineering role. During your answers to the interview questions, make continued reference, where appropriate, to your understanding of how important safety is and also your ability to adhere to the set rules and procedures.  

TIP #3 – Make good use of the STAR interview method when answering situational or behavioral-based engineering interview questions. If you do this, you will gain the highest scores possible because your answers will be ‘evidence-based’.

TIP #4 – Although it is very important to have a thorough understanding of the engineering role you are applying for, you should not neglect to find out as much as possible about the company you want to work for. Although engineers are in big demand at the moment, do not make the mistake of failing to research the organization and their products and services.

TIP #5 – During your preparation for the engineering interview, we recommend you think of previous situations you were in where you followed rules and procedures, solved difficult and complex engineering problems, remained calm under pressure and also dealt effectively with conflict within a work situation. Within the 20 Engineering Interview Questions and Answers guide, we have provided you with a whole host of sample questions and suggested answers to help you prepare.
