It’s important that your resume is ready before you apply. The very first step in their application requires you to upload your resume.
When filling out the application, make sure you fill in every blank. If something doesn’t apply, simply put N/A (not applicable) in the space. This helps to make sure you didn’t miss anything. It also assures them that you took your time filling out the application.
GE is pretty clear with listing the requirements for each job, so make sure you’re applying for a job you have the skills for.
Remember you only get one chance to make a first impression. Take the time to put together a great outfit. Nothing flashy. Check to be sure you are neat and presentable.
Arrive at least 10 minutes early with a smile. Most companies are big on timeliness, and a smile goes a long way.
It is always best to bring several copies of your resume with you. Sometimes when interviewing, you will be asked for a copy.
Do not have gum or candy in your mouth. You will need to be able to speak clearly.
Look the interviewer in the eye. Take time to have a few questions of your own regarding the position and the company. GE actually recommends you ask questions; so make sure you have a few. This shows them your interest.
Take time to thank them for taking the time to meet with you and include a nice firm handshake at the beginning and end of the interview.
