Sometimes you may be put forward for roles other than the one you applied for because you are seen as being the right fit for a GE employee.

You aren't expected to be an expert on the company, but it is a good idea to show initiative and do some research about what GE do, what their goals are and how they want to progress in the near future. GE are always looking for leadership qualities, so give lots of examples where you have worked as part of a team, possibly been a leader, shown problem-solving skills and the ability to communicate with others.
