Hello! I have an interview for the position of Medical Device Quality Engineer, next week. This is my first interview in a long time (I graduated a year ago and have been unemployed for a while) and I would really love to do well in this interview.

I have been browsing the various threads on Quality Engineer interviews and thought that there maybe someone on here, with experience as a Medical Device Quality Engineer who maybe able to help me figure out the best way to prepare for this interview. I was hoping to get some feedback on the following, if possible:

-What type of questions (both technical and behavioral) can I expect?
-What type of questions (both related to the field and otherwise) should I ask them?

I am currently brushing up on all my past research projects (in order to highlight how my research aligns with their requirements) and researching the company and it' products online. Is there anything else I should be doing?

If anybody is interested, these are the job requirements

CAD DEVELOPMENT
AUTO INJECTOR DRAWINGS
FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
MECHANICAL STRESS
VARIANCE ANALYSIS
DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS
STATISTICAL ANALYSIS

Thank you so much for your help!

Let's take this from the top:
You cite seven job requirements:

  1. CAD DEVELOPMENT
  2. AUTO INJECTOR DRAWINGS
  3. FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
  4. MECHANICAL STRESS
  5. VARIANCE ANALYSIS
  6. DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS
  7. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS
What is your skill/knowledge level for each of these on a scale of 1 to 5?
1 being "the first I heard of this activity" and
5 being "I'm so skilled I could write textbooks"
Even after 40 years of experience and a PhD, my average score on these seven is still less than two (1.86), given the criteria I outlined. My saving grace is that I was humble enough to hire folks who were better than I at these skill sets.

If your average skill level on those seven is higher than 3, the interviewer will be licking your boots. If not, you had better be prepared to show what value you can deliver to the organization based on what skills you DO possess.
