Shadowing Prior to Job offer

  1. I am going to shadow today for a PCT position but they have not even made me a job offer. Does this mean that they will probably offer me a job if I'm still interested after shadowing?

    Shadowing is a good opportunity for both the hospital and candiate to continue to evaluate each other.

    They want to see if you dress appropriately, ask pertinent questions of your "preceptor", and are up to the physical challenge of being quick on your feet for a long period of time.

    You have the opportunity to evaluate the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, observe how well they work together, get a feel for the adequacy of staffing, and decide whether the job duties interest you.

    Good luck!
