- by Pixiesmom Apr 29, '12absences? The interview is for a different position at my hospital. I've had three absences (one was lengthy r/t pneumonia) in a year and I don't want it to hurt my chances. My instinct is to discuss them with the director of the department during my interview.

- Apr 29, '12 by not.done.yetWhy would you bring up your own negatives? If asked about them be forthright and compensate with what you are doing to prevent future absences. Otherwise no, don't bring it up.

I've been wrong before though!Why would you bring up your own negatives? If asked about them be forthright and compensate with what you are doing to prevent future absences. Otherwise no, don't bring it up.
- Apr 30, '12 by aachavezNever volunteer any information that isnt specifically asked for! Especially if it might hurt your chances!
Maybe they know about it, realize things like that happen, and don't see it as a problem, and wont ask. Maybe they don't know about it all. Dont bring it up yourself!
But if they do ask, you had a good point about admitting there were issues, why they happened, and what you are doing to fix them. No one's perfect, but being able to own up to your faults, and show tangibly what you're doing about it, really says a alot about you. Good Luck!
