What does a "meet and greet" entail?

  1. I'm going to a meet and greet and a local hospital. They are posting 10 RN positions including 2 that are just for new grads. Also they have 4 spots in a Cardiac Nurse Residency program. They will be putting the positions on their website for application on Friday but are hosting the meet and greet today.

    I have no idea what this may involve. I'm thinking just info on the jobs or something like that. Does anyone have any idea or experience with this kind of thing?

    You're partially correct. It does provide you with an opportunity to obtain job information from them. But - at the same time - they are checking you out. These things are usually attended by hiring managers & educators. They will be talking to you about your interests & abilities. They'll also be making value judgments about how you present yourself - maybe not deliberately, but this is unavoidable.

    So, make sure you are dressed professionally and have clean copies of your resume. Be prepared to answer questions about your career aspirations & past experiences. Show them that you're exactly who they are looking for!
