    @lovinglife45: Haha, that was my plan too!! and... totally failed. heh. I guess here's to hoping for the best! yeah, they timed me, at the end they said, " you have 2 minutes left, impress us" SO WRONG! there are 4-6 spots, so I hope we both get one! I'll update when I heard yay or nay! I'd love to hear from you too!

    @spanglec I am wearing low heels, mainly because my pants are too long, haha. I had to go shopping yesterday to find an interview-appropriate outfit that would fit my 39 weeks pregnant body!

    Question for everybody, if they know: do you know if we are only being considered for our first-choice unit if that is who is interviewing us, or is it still up in the air for second choice? I'm only curious because honestly BMT and heme-onc were about equal for me, and I wondered how they were deciding who to interview. Hope everyone's interviews are going well -- congrats and best of luck to those interviewing next week!

    I was interviewed by members of my specific 1st choice unit, as were the others who showed up at same time slot for theirs. If I were you, I'd stick very hard to your first choice. There are more people than spots for each dept slot and if you look like you are on the fence whatsoever, my guess is that they will choose someone else who is really gung ho to their specific unit. They want to know why you chose CHLA and their unit at this interview, don't sell them short! Wishing you the very best of luck, be confident, be all about hem/onc if that was 1st choice and I bet you'll look and do fantastic!

    I have one more question for those who have already interviewed. Did you bring copies of your resume for the panel? They told us to do this in my nursing classes but I just wanted to feel around for what people do. This is my first post-college job interview so I am still getting a feel for how it all works.

    I asked the nurse recruiter who called me if I needed to bring anything and she said they will have everything but if you would like to bring additional resumes you can (I usually do, it shows your prepared).

    I brought my resume and stuff, enough copies for everyone. They took them, briefly glanced and them, and put them in a pile of stuff. I like to tell myself that they are saving it for later so they can read every last word and cherish them :-)

    is anyone else interviewing for 6W? the recruiter said it would be a 30 min interview with the leads of the department. what kind of questions are they going to ask? i guess this one is different from the 10 min one?

    chantz....I wonder if you are going straight to the second interview? like 6W only has one interview? that would be so nice haha!
