Hey There! I'm glad I came across this question
First off, I just received a job offer at Hillcrest Baptist
! But It wasn't easy.
To even get a response from the hospital (and after about 10 applications) I decided to write human resources a letter and ask them how to make my application more appealing (and lots of other nice things about them and why I'd like a job with them). I got a call the very day they received it. She said she'd forward my application
!!! A week later, they called me in for interview. They said they had a LOT of applicants and it would be at least a week before they'd have an answer. They said my application would be forwarded back to HR to have a decision (even though I wasnt interviewed by HR?). Well, the VERY NEXT DAY I was offered the job. I'm surprised because I dont have work experience and there were many, many applicants.
Anyway, right after my interview I emailed the lady who was interviewing me and told her that I was thankful to have the opportunity to talk with her. I think that that had a lot to do with it, as well.
Some questions I was asked are:
Why should we hire you?
What was your favorite manager like?
Are you CPR certified?
Have you had any conflicts at work, and how were they resolved?
Hope this helps
