Hey guys.. I just graduated from an LPN program and am looking for a job while I wait to get into an ADN program. I applied for a plebotomist position and was sent back a list of questions to send back.. Mind looking them over and giving some feedback? I have never applied for a job before where I was asked what wages I expected, I dont want to sound like an idiot! :uhoh3:

Thanks!

(my answers in bold, and I eliminated the non pertinant questions)

1. Why do you want to work for the American Red Cross in this position?

I would like to work for this organization because I feel like being a part of the American Red Cross would be very fulfilling. I became a nurse because I want to make a difference in people's lives and being part of a team that services people in need would do just that. I am also looking forward to furthering my education, and training in phlebotomy would give me an opportunity to advance my skills in nursing practice.

5. What are your hourly salary requirements for our opening? Answers along the lines of "open," "negotiable" or "competitive" will not suffice.

I would like to be paid a wage that is competitive compared to local LPN wages. I expect that would be $16+ hourly and also compensated for travel.

Looks good... I don't like the wage question myself, if you ask for too much you look greedy, and if you ask for too little they will take advantage. But it seems like you did your research and are asking for a wage comparable to your local market. My only suggestion would be to eliminate the word "competitive" from your answer, since it says right in the question to avoid those words!
