      Erich, If Rentapen is hiring a designer who will be designing weld fixtures for our customers, we want to know if they can concept a design, understand materials and tolerances, understand fixturing concepts. So we have testing set up for that. We also have them check a job where we know where the mistakes are. This helps us to see how much they know vs how much they SAY they know. Some of this information is teachable. Attitude, ability to communicate and listen is most important.

      Hiring an intern is not as big a test. An intern will start out as a CAD drafter and learn as they move forward. The ability to learn, follow instructions, have a good attitude to learn and change and grow. We like it better if they can demonstrate some CAD drafting ability/skill.

      Hi to all,
      i voted for "something else" :)

      For my personal point of view:
      - will power;
      - communications skills;
      - english language knowledge
      - how many years have you spent to take your degree: companies, especially multinationals, see in a positive way this factor.
      This means that you are a new graduated who has passed all his exams within the prescribed period of time!
      Furthermore it means that you are a brilliant high potential person able to learn different matters in less time.

      Obviously the final high GPA helps you to have an excellent profile!
