    Hello All

    Curious, how long should a good interview last?

    Does 30 mins should like a good time?

    I recently had an interview; it only lasted 35 minutes. If I hadn't had questions lined up for them to answer it probably would have lasted only like 15 minutes; so make sure you have questions for them. I thought that was a bad sign because it seemed so short--but I received an offer within the next two weeks :-)

    Depends on how long your answers are, how many questions the interviewers ask, and if you ask questions at the end. Discussing the latter you should be asking questions it shows you are interested in their corporation.

    I didn't feel like it was a lot of questions. They basically asked me why I wanted to work there, how I handled a difficult patient, describe myself as a person, strengths/weakness. All this in 15 mins.

    And then during my round: I asked them about training, how staff regards being a preceptor and mentor, hospital dynamics, pay, common disorders, and common concerns.

    I feel like that asking questions will lead to them asking more questions and it just shows better development.
