Former Materials Engineering and Corrosion Intern at Chevron

There are two different interviews, a behavioral and a technical interview. For the behavioral interview, generally they're looking to determine if you would fit well within the culture of the company and the group you'd potentially be working with, as well as learn about your problem solving and team-work capabilities. I'd recommend thinking about times that you've overcome issues with group/team projects before the interview. For the technical interview, some basic knowledge of materials properties and processing as well as failure in materials is important. For example, you should know the general differences between BCC and FCC metals, the effects of different kinds of heat treatments, and some basics of failure analysis, like what different kinds of fracture surfaces look like (or how they are characterized).
