Interview Questions?

  1. Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

    After reading through some of these forums I know you ladies/gents are knowledgable so I would like to ask for you help. I'm having to create a mock interview for my career field, and I have yet to complete my degree as a Registered Nurse.

    Can anyone give me a good list of questions that an interviewer will or could ask me when I go to this type of job interview? I don't want the answers, I need to be able to answer those on my own.

    Your help would be so appreciated.

    Many employers are BIG on behavioral interviewing. They will ask you questions like " Tell me about a time when you had to work on a team; Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a negative attitude" etc... Google behavioral interviewing, you will find tons of questions. They want you to tell about an actual event that happened to you. The premise is that past performance predicts future performance. Anyway, my hospital uses behavioral interviewing exclusively. Many of the questions I was asked were verbatim on some websites I found! I would also know the run of the mill stuff too.Why do you want to work in this area, strengths, weakness, etc. Good luck!- Jessica

    "Describe yourself in three words"
    "Tell me about a problem you have experienced in your past work history and how you solved it"
    "What would you do if you witnessed a co-worker doing something illegal/unethical?"
    "Why did you choose our facility?"

    Thanks for the questions. With a question like this, "Tell me about a time when you had to work on a team; Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a negative attitude" do I give any work environment or am I suppose to stay within my field? (I have not worked in any medical field yet)

    They will want stories about things that you actually did. So draw on your previous work experience, school, etc...

    Potential employers are also interested in continuing education (as in, how do you stay current, what are your plans for CE); where do you see yourself in 5 years; evidence-based practice is usually a questions, and, of course, patient and family-centered care.

    Oh...time management skills usually pop up.

    Good luck

    Check out career builders, they have a whole section on interview tips with what you should do and/or don't. They even have some pretty funny stories on it, like you shouldn't show up to the interview in your bikini bathing top and short shorts over the bottom part, with your flip flops on. I have to admit, dressing like this never really crossed my mind!!!
