so i got my first interview and i REALLY want to nail it. but i know im bad at interviews. when i had my interview at Best Buy i was really nervous, and i stumbled on a few questions. but i still ended up getting the job (but at the same time, its only best buy, not an engineering job). im nervous about bombing the interview, but excited that i have one. it was getting very discouraging putting all those resumes out and no word back. i applied for this job like 3-4 months ago. so the job i am interviewing for is Satellite Specialist at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. i would be directly working for Honeywell. here is the job description in case you are curious: "Perform as an on-line engineer for the Earth Observing System Flight Operations Team, supporting the Terra, Aqua, and Aura missions at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Implement the daily science and operations plans required to collect and deliver mission science and engineering data. Perform any real-time planning or re-planning necessary to mitigate mission or data risks incurred by flight-segment or ground-segment anomalies. Verify flight system configuration and monitor and evaluate flight system and component state-of-health during real-time spacecraft contacts. Compile data sets for long-term analyses of observatory performance. Support the development, validation, and testing of products and procedures used to configure and operate the EOS flight and ground systems." my interview is next monday. i know the basic stuff, look nice, show up on time, be personable, etc. but im really nervous about the questions they will ask. ive never had a real interview before. i do have a BS in Aerospace Engineering, i graduated in Dec 08. i'm also a little worried about my GPA. it was pretty bad at about a 2.4. i have some probs with a couple higher level calc classes and i let college life get the best of me early on. but my last couple years i really worked hard and my semester GPA was 3.0+ for my last 2 years. im not sure what i would/should say if they ask about my GPA and why it was low. does anyone have any suggestions for me? anyone else ever interviewed for a job like this? i know Calesta is working at Lockheed now, and i'd def like some input from you, Mike. but i value anyone's input. what kind of questions should i expect? this is an entry level position, so my lack of experience shouldnt hurt me too much, at least i hope. but i am very interested in learning all i can, i have a basic understanding of orbital mechanics, and i'm very interested in all things space. i also like to think i have a good work ethic and that im a productive worker. i know a lot about computers both from personal experience/learning and from learning while working for Geek Squad. if anyone wants to take a look at my resume so you can see what the interviewer has seen ill be happy to post it up. the interviewer seemed very eager to get me in there for an interview and meet me, which is promising i think, but i dont want to draw any conclusions from it. any help is appreciated!
