What can I expect?

  1. 1
    I've been trading emails with a Nursing recruiter for a national LTC facility. She has set me up for an interview with the HR person at a specific facility.

    She wrote I look forward to speaking to you after the interview.

    After the interview will I need to contact her or should I expect if things went well she will contact me?

    The interview is 2pm on a Thursday; how long is typical before I hear if they are indeed interested in offering me a job.

    My only nursing job to date they hired me on the spot but I assume that is the exception not the rule.

    Any thoughts would help.

    After meeting with them, and thanking them, ask "What is the next step?".

    "Ms Jones said she would talk to me afterwards. Should I contact her, or wait for her to call me?".

    Also ask what their timeframe is.

    I guess I wasn't clear in my question. I'm wondering is it typical to get an onsite offer after an initial interview? or in nursing is it more typical to have a lag between interview and possibly a second interview and/or job offer?


    I am definitely planning on asking them when I'm through I'm just wondering what might be typical in the industry? Is my first experience of hired on the spot typical or is there usually more to the interview process?

    You may not get an offer on the spot, though an indication that an offer will be made is possible.

    A late Thursday interview may mean you won't hear till next week.


    Each organization moves at its own internal pace, which is usually slower than one would hope.

    Good luck

    Actually I'm hoping for more time then less. I have my dream job interview which was set up after the first one was in place and it is a week later. So, I'm hoping things will take longer then my current job which was on the spot hiring. Thanks for the thoughts.
