When did you find out you got the job?

  1. 0
    how long after an interview did you find out if you got the job?


    If I give you a summary of my interview could you maybe give me your opinions as to how you think it went?

    Interview lasted a little over an hour. They asked me questions, I asked them questions. After I asked my questions they asked me several times if I had MORE questions. After the interview they gave me a tour and introduced me to the clinical nurse specialist.


    The position is for labor and delivery and when I asked them

    "If I do not get this job, what advice would you give me so that I can secure this job in the future?"


    their response was : "That is a great question. To be honest there really isn't anything that I can think of, you've done great. The only drawback I can foresee is the fact that you are a new graduate"

    I do think your interview went very well according to your description. Do you know if they are truly open to hiring new grads? Did they know you were a new grad going into the interview?

    It usually takes 1-2 weeks to receive an offer if they do choose to make you one. I am still considered a new grad, and had a 2nd interview at a Pediatric clinic this morning. To me it went very well. I made it very clear to the nurses that I want a supportive learning environment and made sure to ask them "How do you like training new nurses?" I wanted their full input. We all know there are many nurses who will "eat their young" when it comes to training new grads....so make sure they fully understand that you want a place of employment that will "mold" you and be supportive.

    They repeatedly asked me if I had MORE questions this morning as well. I told them the nurse manager had given me her email just in case something popped into my head, as it often does when you leave the interview.

    Good luck to you!!! Let us know when you hear.

    For my new grad job I interviewed on a Wednesday and had a voicemail from HR on Friday afternoon.

    One very long and painful month!! I didn't think my interview went particularly well, although they did compliment my outfit. I was so nervous and on the verge of tears/vomiting the entire time. It sounds like you did really well, though. Fingers crossed!

    Meeee too! I would cry at the drop of a hat while I was waiting to hear! I think my issue was that everyone in my class who interviewed the same week as me heard after a week or two. Came to find out later that the unit director of the unit I was a CNA on and the unit director of the ED who used to be the unit director of the unit I was a CNA on were "arguing" about who should get me, so I guess that was good. Didn't make the waiting any easier though since I found that out after the fact.
