Interview Tips

  1. Can anyone offer any interviewing tips for this almost new grad (July 2002 ). I will start interviewing for a position in a NICU next month, I am very nervous and would really appreciate any advice. Also, what kind of questions should I expect to hear?

    Thanks a bunch!! :kiss

    I think all of my interview questions basically boiled down to one for my first job. "What have you learned through your experiences in/out of school and how do you think it has prepared you for this job?" With a new grad position I think mostly they are trying to evaluate your critical thinking skills and how motivated you are to work in the specialized area. Try writing out some experiences you gained and qualities you have that you think would make you an asset to this particular specialty/unit....and relax. Congratulations!!

    Think up a time when you were wrong, what happened, what you did to fix it and what you learned from it. (and don't forget that, could make one up).

    Also think of a criticism you received from a professor or preceptor in school and what you did to fix it and what the outcome was.
    This type of thing shows that you know your weaknesses, and are willing to work to fix them.

    Have a good response for "why do you want to work here?"

    Have some questions ready for when they ask you if YOU have questions for THEM.
