Hello ,

i have been trying to build my experiences while i am at school. i have been applying for unit secretary,unit aide and medical receptionist. I have been getting a few call backs on them, but i have been struggling with the interviews. I feel like when they ask me why i want this job? I freeze i know why i want this job, i want it for more experience to help me continue on with my nursing career and to get more experience talking with people,hospital environment etc. Well that's not exactly what they want to hear; so just curious how others would answer this question?

launch into what a great facility it is and how you want to work there specificially. Why is your honest answer not good enough? If you wont leave that position to be a nurse for over a year, they wont care that you are not in it for the long haul. They don't expect people to stay in those positions forever.
