I cried during my interview

  1. 0
    Hi everyone, I just wanna share my experience during my interview recently. So I had an interview for level 3 NICU. They asked me what made me passionate about NICU and I shared them my patient experience about a premie who I really touched my heart when I worked in NICU. I told them that being in NICU is very rewarding. I've seen this baby ventilated and went through everything. And I felt so fulfilled as a nurse to see her so healthy and smiling that I helped her get better. Then sudenly tears fell from my eyes, and yes I CRIED. I felt kinda embarassed in front of my 4 interviewers. There were 4 of them, I saw a lot of reaction. They were really nice and jolly. Although I didn't know if they found it funny or if they think I looked stupid. But they reassured me that it's okay, coz they've seen a few who also cried during an interview.

    Now, I don't know if that would make or break my chance for the position. I really don't know. Hopefully I get it, I felt that I answered their questions pretty well.

    Anyways, I'm just venting. I just wanna know what you think about my experience. Or if some of you had the same experience.

    I've cried in an interview before (not for nursing though), and I got the job.

    I've done the same! The interviewers asked me to name someone I admired most. I quickly stated that it was my father, whom just passed, and started to tear up. I told them why & quickly regained my composure, but I did not get the job. I got a better one.....With a different company.

    Well mine is different. It was something related to patient care and in a positve way. I told them I feel rewarded and fulfilled as a nurse see that patient very healthy now and how that experience made me more passionate about NICU nursing. The neonatalogist overheard the interview from the door and jokingly asked my interviewers if that was an interview or if they bit me or something, then we all laughed.
