How does one do well in an Interview

Posted

Hello everyone, I have the TCU interview coming up in a couple of months and was wondering how to keep from being so terribly nervous. I have the knowledge, experience, and the desire it is the interview process I keep screwing up on. I went to an Interview at TCU last year and I am headed back to reinterview this year. Please help. (It was as though I did not even know my name I was so nervous) I have worked in critical care and pacu combined for 16 years. Thanks GC

Imagine you are doing interviewing and what would you want to know about the applicants..."Why should we pick you over other applicants? What have you contributed in nursing? Why did you select this field? Are you ready to kiss life good-bye as you knew it? Do you have all your ducks in a row? Whyy do you want to do this? Why do you think you would benefit patients more in this field over the one you're in now? Are you just looking for money and more money?

Do you get along well with doctors? Have you worked surgery before?

Etc. What do you know about this field?"

Hi.

My advise is to be yourself and ask them how u can contribute to their organization. And, ask questions. You are actually interviewing them to determine if u want to work for them or not.

Try taking propranolol 10mg about 30 min. beore your interview. This has been proven to help with performance stress.

Everyone is expected to be nervous. There is a lot of pressure in an anesthesia school interview and the admission committee wants to see how you do under that pressure/stress. Being a complete wreck and falling apart is NOT good. Being cocky and arrogant, presenting a know-it-all attitude is NOT good. Try to relax, be confident, and pleasant.

Oh yeah, try not to drink to much coffee before you go in! Learn some stress attenuating techniques, this is not only helpful for the interview but for the long 28 months once you get in. Good luck.
