Interview help!!

  1. 0 Hey! So I have an interview this Thursday at Bassett Medical Center up in Cooperstown, NY...and I REALLY pray I get this job!

    My questions are...what is the best thing to wear for my interview? I have a beautiful pencil skirt and jacket suit which I think will be fine...I hope so, anyway!

    How long will it take to find out whether or not I am hired? Could it be right after the interview or a couple of days after?

    And since I have to relocate what should I say if they ask me when I will be available to start?

    Thank you!!

    Oh wow...hm, I hope it doesn't take that long! SO nerve wrecking!! Lol...but the surgical floor nurse manager told me to expect a call next week and the nurse recruiter told me that if I didn't hear from her in a couple of days, to call her. What should I take as a couple of days? :P

    Well, you interviewed on Thursday, so Friday is one day, the weekend doesn't count, Monday is two days, plus throw in one more day because stuff happens - I'd call Wednesday morning.

    Hey so I just got a call from (MODERATOR EDIT OF NAME - PLEASE DO NOT POST NAMES OF INDIVIDUALS PER TOS), and she told me that surgical is very interested in me and she is now going to start the next process which is calling my references and doing a background check and that she would call me early next week. This is amazing! I'm so excited!

    That's great!

    Are you planning to take the job if it's offered, despite the rural setting?

    Hey that's great! Sounds like surgical will offer you the position pending references and background check. I'll be leaving Sunday for my interview on Monday and am so nervous!! Did they ask you difficult questions? I'm most nervous about behavioral questions, I don't do well with those... if you can share any info on the interview process or questions, I'd appreciate it!

    Yes! There is no reason I shouldn't.
