How do you know the interview went well?

  1. 0 Hello all!
    I went on an interview about two weeks ago, at a hospital I really would love to work at! The unit is also perfect because it is the same specialty area I had my practicum. For those of you experienced in the interviewing process, what says "good interview"? I was with the nurse manager for about 1 hour and 1/2. She asked me questions (scenario and personality). During this time, I sensed that she really liked me. After we talked, she took me on a tour of the unit, and introduced me to the staff (even the cleaning staff!). After the tour, we went back to her office and I was able to ask her the questions I had prepared. At the end of the interview, she gave me her card and told me to call her or email her if I had any more questions about the position...I thought this was generous! She told me that she would be interviewing through the week and the following week. I was probably one of her first interviewees. I will probably hear something by this week coming. By the way, she is filling two full-time positions. I am a new graduate, so I believe inexperience is my biggest negative. The nurse manager did say that she was not looking for just a "warm body" she is looking for someone who really cares and who would fit within her team. Does this sound like a positive interview? Any comments/thoughts are welcome!

    If you had a good vibe from her, its possible she might consider you. However 1 and 1/2hrs for an interview, that seems so long. My last interview lasted 15 minutes and i got the offer. Best of luck and keep us informed!
