Besides anticipating likely Civil Engineer questions, work on generating your own questions about the company, it's culture or values. A final question is frequently - "what questions do you have?" Having good questions shows you listened and demonstrates your interest and thoughtful preparation.

Hi Evelyn,

I was a University Recruiter for a large Civil Engineering company for a few years. The most important factor to consider when interviewing entry level candidates is evaluating for POTENTIAL. As an early career candidate, it will be difficult for you to convey deep technical experience related to Civil Engineering, so interviewers are looking out for some foundation in basic civil engineering principles from school and any internship experiences; but the soft skills will be more heavily evaluated, like evaluating your communication style and delivery, high energy and passion for this work, how you deal with conflict with peers, how do you collaborate with others, etc.

Hope this helps!

Whenever I interview someone it's a combination of project experience and personality. The starting point is that you have the basic skills necessary to do the job and other skills can be taught. What you've actually done and worked on tells us a lot. If you're just starting and interviewing for your first job then it's about selling yourself and showing that you're interested in the position, explaining why, and demonstrating that you're taken time to find out about the company and what we do. Finding someone with the right personality to fit the position and the team that you'll be joining is more difficult,
