Interview at Providence Hospital in Anchorage

  1. Hi All,

    I am a new grad and i am moving to Anchorage in 2 weeks and I have a phone interview for the Resident Nurse position in the NICU at Providence hospital in Anchorage. I am so excited for the opportunity. I am a little nervous. I haven't had a job interview in a long time and I am just looking for advice. If there is anyone out there that has applied for their new grad positions and could share some insight i would be so grateful. Thank you

    Well, I had the interview today. I was told by the HR recruiter a couple weeks ago that the interview was just going to be a basic phone interview and if i made it pass that round it would be a panel interview.... and when I got a call it was a full panel interview, with the nurse manager and 3 other staff members. I almost pooped my pants i was so excited and nervous. I was not mentally prepared lol but i calmed myself and answered the questions the best i could. I felt weird because it was not the most personal interview I have been apart of.... you can't pick up on the visual ques.. but they all seemed happy and very friendly. They answered my questions had about the new grad program and said I would here back sometime early next week from HR. .....and then bam 28 mins later it was over LOL I am so excited and grateful for the opportunity I had today, I pray I get it. Best of luck to you OutOfStater!!!!

    Well I got the Job!!!! The 2nd interview was a FaceTime interview since I'm out of state. It was nice being able to see the faces of the interviewers. The 2nd interview was a lot easier since the questions where a little more personal like " why Nicu?"

    Yayy!!!! Congratulations!! I'm glad to hear the second interview is a little more laid back. Did they give you a start date? I hear they start pretty far after graduation for most folks.

    The ice isn't as bad usually! It's been a real warm and icy winter so I've heard from family. I'm glad your liking it though! Best of luck as you start and keep us updated!
