    Panel Interview

    I'm scheduled for a panel interview this Feb 2009.

    Anyone here working / know someone who is working at UP-PGH as a nurse and the like?
    How's the Panel Interview?

    What are the things that I should keep in mind before and during the interview?
    What preparations are needed to pass the panel interview?

    Please enlighten me, anyone? Thank you very much.
    Happy Holidays!
    Panel interview eh? Gosh, mine was in 1992 so that's a long time ago. I remember the Assistant Director for Nursing, the Chief Nurse from the Division of Nursing Education and Training, a few of the Rotating Chief Nurses, and the President of the PGH Nurses Association or something like that were present. Basically, a bunch of old nurses gathered around me, a new grad. Just dress smart and act smart without sounding too cocky. If the question is in English, answer in straight English and pay attention to your grammar.

    I don't remember any technical questions or nursing questions aside from being asked where I graduated from. I remember the usual "tell me about yourself" and "what are your future plans?". PGH mandates that each hired nurse keeps the 2-year employment commitment prior to leaving for any reason during that time and this was definitely stressed during the interview.

    hi!

    i've worked in PGH ER from 2004 to 2007. i must say it has really help me a lot, especially in my skills and knowledge, since its my first job right after passing the board.

    PGH is hiring non-stop,especially now that there are many nurses resigning who are going to Saudi, UAE, Canada, UK n US. You just have to submit the needed requirements then pass the wriiten exam and interview.

    Hi Tobby Water,

    You can visit PGH website and go to the Oppurtunities then click Nursing service for all the informations and requirements that you may want to know if you want to apply or call them personally . I worked there for 13.5 years in one of the ICUs there and I am very proud to say that I really learned a lot from this instutuion. So go for it and ring them to inquire. Goodluck!

    hi tobby_walter

    from what I can remember, I got the form from the Nursing Service Office of PGH, then i went back to my school and have it accomplished by our Dean. Good luck on your application, you can make it. I'm also from a small province in Bicol, and made it to PGH. Just be your self and be confident, especially with your fundamentals of Nursing.

    Are they currently accepting applications or is there a sked when applications can be submitted? I'm also from bicol and I'm planning to go to manila next week.

    I am currently employed at PGH. hmmm... The one who posted this thread might already have the answer to his questions but I would still answer it just the same.

    Well, for those of you who are still about to apply at my beloved hospital (wow, with feelings), you can apply because it is on continuous hiring. But, it is for manpower pooling only as of the moment. They would like to empty the thousand of applicants who have finished the panel interview and exam first before starting new batches. When I wrote thousands, I mean THOUSANDS (no kidding). We have our own version of retrogression at PGH. The priority date is 2007 hirees for deployment. The opening in Canada has paved the way to increase the transition rate of PGH employees. Usually our deployment rate is about 10 nurses per batch per month at an average. If there are any questions, please feel free to buzz me (The Singing Bee in combo with The Buzz.. hehe..).
