    Hi!
    I also accepted a residency position in postpartum starting in September 2014 at Swedish First Hill. I think that others will be trickling in as they complete more hiring. The HR person I spoke to said that they will be doing hiring for the next 1-1.5 months for the Sept cohort.

    Hi @toucheturtle! That's awesome we both got Postpartum! I was wondering if there might be someone else in postpartum too - yay! Yeah I heard that too, it sounds like it is still early in the hiring process.

    Hello! Glad to hear that you guys got the position. Just want to ask for some interview tips if it's okay. I have an in-person with the sr. HR this week.

    Hi @laurie3 - congrats on the interview! A lot of the questions at first were logistical, like where did you go to nursing school, can you work 12 hour night shift, can you work a variable shift, have you been a nurse tech, how many hours in your senior practicum, etc. The other more typical interview questions were - why swedish? why X nursing specialty (like postpartum, med/surg, NICU, etc.)? what skills do you think are necessary for this position? what leadership positions did you have in high school or college? That's all I can remember for now.

    Have really clear reasons for why you want to work at swedish and why you are a good fit for the specialty. My SR recruiter interview didn't have any behavior questions at all. Good luck!!

    I have an initial interview for the postpartum floor too! I am super nervous for the interview so thanks so much for the interview tips! Is the consensus pretty much not many behavioral questions at all?

    For the 1st interview with HR I didn't have any behavioral questions but the 2nd interview with the managers and peer interview team it was all behavioral questions. Good luck!!

    "I also accepted a residency position in postpartum starting in September 2014 at Swedish First Hill."

    I am applying for postpartum positions in January and would appreciate if any feedback on those that got positions what you think gave you a competitive edge in getting hired. Have you done rotations at Swedish and what sort of experience do you have in postpartum?

    Hey all,

    I have similar questions as @howardm1. I have an upcoming interview for the residency position in postpartum at Swedish next week. Any advice on the in-person interview would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks
