I know I come here a lot seeking advice (and you have all been good to me) but I'm having serious anxiety over an upcoming interview. A recruiter put me in touch with a LTC/palliative care facility out of state. After two phone interviews they asked me to come for an interview, and are even putting me up in a nice motel. The recruiter talked to me today about things I should do. I didn't have a lot of money to spend but I've put together a "professional" outfit (though it looks kind of dowdy.). I was told to come up with a list of questions to ask, and I'm having some trouble with this. Any ideas?
I've been looking for a job for so long, I don't want to mess this up. The recruiter said not to be surprised if they send me home with a contract. I'm wondering if by having me come down there they have pretty much decided to give me a chance, or if this is just part of the interview process and they are interviewing other candidates? I just wonder how close I am to actually having the position.
Another question: if they hire me how long is it going to take to get a temporary license? How long will it be before I go down there and start working? I will be going from Tennessee to South Carolina. They are giving me an extra night in the motel so I can spend time looking around the area at housing. I'm afraid to get my hopes up, but does this sound like a pretty sure deal?
There is another thing, I was told by the recruiter they may ask what sets me apart from other people who may apply to the job. This kind of makes me feel like a deer in the headlights...what sort of answer would they be looking for? Would they be looking for something like, how much experience I have working with the elderly and those who are near the end of life and I feel like I have attained some good experience in my career that could help me in my practice? Or am I totally off?
Could someone help me put all this into a coherent presentation? I've just been to so many job interviews only to hear, "we still have other people to interview"..."we've got your number"...blah blah blah. I just feel like I should brace myself for more rejection.
