    rninformatics,
    Thank you for listing both websites. I will look at them and see what I should alter. I do realize I should be interviewing the team regarding the position, but once the stress and anxiety escalates, I lose all perspective. I need to find ways to prevent it from happening. What do they always say? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    rninformatics,
    Thank you for the sharing the interview techniques. I have printed them out and will review them. I realize I SHOULD be interviewing them. However, when my stress and anxiety peak during these panel interviews, my only thoughts are of 'survival.' I need to find ways to eliminate the anxiety in order to become successful.

    Another thing to do (which really helped me) is write out the possible questions they may ask you. Then either bullet or write out complete sentences on what points you would cover. Go through as many questions as you can, especially if you can predict which ones the panel will ask, based on the job position & description. I found that rehearsing allows you to be prepared for whatever question they give you...since it will be similar enough to someone of your rehearsed questions.

    Thank you all for your support. Through better preparation and some changes in my thoughts (power of intention!), I just received a wonderful offer for an informatics position. I am very blessed by GOD and a great networking tool like this, to support me.
