121 Technician Questions and Answers:

1 :: So, tell us something about yourself?

I'd be very surprised if you haven't been asked this one at every interview. It's probably the most asked question because it sets the stage for the interview and it gets you talking. Be careful not to give the interviewer your life story here. You don't need to explain everything from birth to present day. Relevant facts about education, your career and your current life situation are fine.

2 :: Explain me what type of work environment do you prefer?

When an interviewer poses this question, he/she may be attempting to assess how well you would integrate into the work environment. However, they will likely expect your answer to include a description that applies to or embodies the atmosphere of their workplace. Common terms that can be used to describe such environments include “professional” or “casual,” “open” or “private,” and “fast-paced” or “relaxed,” among others. It may also help to look into how other similar work environments are described, so that you can use comparable terminology. Avoid superficial and general descriptions, and be ready to justify your reasoning well.

3 :: Explain me have you had previous internship experience? Why or why not?

If you have had prior experience at another internship, reflect upon the experiences you had then and think about what you learned there—what takeaways can now be applied to this new opportunity? If you haven’t had internship experience, be prepared to honestly answer why you’re seeking your first internship now.

4 :: Explain me what motivates you to do a good job?

The answer to this one is not money, even if it is. You should be motivated by life's noble pursuits. You want recognition for a job well done. You want to become better at your job. You want to help others or be a leader in your field.

5 :: So, explain me now why I should hire you?

As I'm sure you know, "because I'm great" or "I really need a job" are not good answers here. This is a time to give the employer a laundry list of your greatest talents that just so happen to match the job description. It's also good to avoid taking potshots at other potential candidates here. Focus on yourself and your talents, not other people's flaws.

6 :: Tell me what clients or sectors have you worked with in the past?

Technicians can work in any industrial sector. But it is natural for a technician to work with a limited category of customers. So just talk about yourself and try to provide information relevant to the interview. Describe your job in general (hardware store and repair shop, IT companies, etc.). List a few specific tasks you usually do, such as visiting private homes to repair minor problems on the spot, or installing and maintaining software and hardware security in the companies of a specific district.

7 :: Tell me what is meant by arm-stickiness?

If one or a few processes have a high access rate to data on one track of a storage disk, then they may monopolize the device by repeated requests to that track. This generally happens with most common device scheduling algorithms (LIFO, SSTF, C-SCAN, etc). High-density multisurface disks are more likely to be affected by this than low density ones.

8 :: Explain me in the context of memory management, what are placement and replacement algorithms?

Placement algorithms determine where in available real-memory to load a program. Common methods are first-fit, next-fit, best-fit. Replacement algorithms are used when memory is full, and one process (or part of a process) needs to be swapped out to accommodate a new program. The replacement algorithm determines which are the partitions to be swapped out.

9 :: Explain me is Windows NT a full blown object oriented operating system? Give reasons?

No Windows NT is not so, because its not implemented in object oriented language and the data structures reside within one executive component and are not represented as objects and it does not support object oriented capabilities.

10 :: Explain me what are the sub-components of I/O manager in Windows NT?

☛ Network redirector/ Server

☛ File systems
