    I've spoken at great length with many of them - I believe any of them would be more than willing to help. If they aren't able to answer your questions, they are usually quick to transfer you to another recruiter or someone who can.

    Thank you!

    The main pediatric nurse recruiters name is Cynthia Ranzolin. I think she might just be in charge of interviews/hiring. Just call nurse recruitment's main number and ask if you could speak to a nurse recruiter to talk to about pediatrics. I suggest you have a list of questions written out when you call because you don't want to forget anything you want to ask.

    Hi Moej,
    I'm also a new grad who will be in the Hopkins Residency (not Peds, though, but Cardiac Critical Care) and will be coming from another state.
    Hi ean29,

    I have a job interview this Wednesday for a job in the Cardiac CCU. Can you give me a heads-up on what to expect in the interview? I'm not sure whether the interviewer focuses on psychosocial questions, or more unit-specific (procedures, meds, etc) type questions. Any insight you can provide will be much appreciated!

    Also, how long after your interview did you hear back from Hopkins with a job offer?

    Hi Pokytrokyt,
    First off, congrats on getting your interview! As people told me, that's a great accomplishment in itself. As for the interview, even in the specialities and sub-specialities, I'm getting the feeling that each manager has their own style of the interview. For example, I didn't get any NCLEX like questions, anything about meds, procedures, etc. Instead they really focused on me - on my philosophies, my qualities, and characteristics. My interview was very much a discussion/conversation rather than a rapid fire question round. The only direct questions I was asked was to describe a challenging situation and how I handled it, along with "What is the greatest thing you have to offer the unit?". I was also asked if I had a support system around the area. Oh and she asked the usual - "Why cardiac? Why cardiac critical care?" Also intertwined were more subtle questions about my philosophy of teamwork (interdisciplinary, rounds, communication, etc), beliefs on patient/family/nurse interaction, etc. It was a very relaxed environment (well, in as much as it could be with the mantra of "This is your dream job...this is your dream job..." going through my head). I interviewed on a Wednesday and my manager told me she wanted to have a decision within a week, two at max. However, I ended up hearing back like 48 hours later on that Friday morning they had offered me the position.
    Best wishes to you and shoot any more questions my way!

    Thanks so much for your reply. I happened to read your post this morning on my iPhone just before going into my interview with HR. I think it really made a difference, as I had time to think about answers to the questions you were asked. I'm not sure which unit you're starting in, but my interview ended about 1:00pm, and I was called with a job offer late this afternoon to work in the Cardiac CCU, starting July 25th!!

    Where in Peds are you working? One of my fellow students is starting in an adolescent Peds unit, and another is starting in the NICU, both on August 1.
