Preparing for the application process and interview at FirstEnergy

Putting your best foot forward is the first step in being considered for a student opportunity. These tips can help you showcase your talents and experience. 

Preparing your resume:

  • In most cases, the first impression begins with your resume. Whether you have experience or not, understand that this key document tells your story. Make sure it is factual, well-organized, and contains no typographical or grammatical errors.
  • If a resume lacks work experience, include activities that exhibit leadership experiences as an alternative. (student organizations or community service)

Preparing for your interview:

Here are ideas to help you prepare for your interview with FirstEnergy:

  • Be prepared to discuss not only what you’ve done, but how you performed certain duties. Interviewers may ask behavioral questions to understand how you solved problems, interacted with team members and demonstrated leadership. The STAR technique (Situation, Task, Action and Results) can assist you as you respond to probing questions.
  • Utilize the information from your resume to answer interview questions and provide examples from multiple experiences that you have encountered.  
  • Prepare quality questions for your interviewer. The interview process is a two-way exchange. Your role is to determine if FirstEnergy is the right fit for you. Research the company. This will give you better context for the questions asked of you, as well as help you to select quality questions for the interviewer(s).
  • Relax. Although, interviewing can be nerve wracking, our goal is to discover your strengths, interests and your approach to work on teams.

Consult your university’s career center for more information and resources. If you need interviewing practice, the career center can conduct mock interviews.
