I am a new graduate RN...
Several of my fellow nursing grads have been telling me that there are certain things you must avoid mentioning at job interviews...Can this be true??
1st example, TEACHING...I have been told that as a new graduate, you should not be proud of teaching or talk about how motivated you are about teaching during your interview...(my thoughts: I believe teaching is one of the essential roles as a RN..so long as I know exactly what Im talking about, why not?!!)
2nd example, FURTHER EDUCATION...when asked what your 5 year goal is...you should never mention that you are planning to go back to school (whether its for BSN or graduate program)...(my thoughts: I understand that facilities want to hire someone that is planning to work at the particular place long term...however, if they wish to receive further education down the road WHILE they work, why not?!! this won't hurt the job, if anything it may help the nurse be better at her job!!)
As I mentioned earlier, I am a new graduate and do not have much experience with job interviews...SO I am not sure why any of what I mentioned are things "not to mention"!!!
It would really help if people could give me some feedback on this...so that I could learn and also share with my fellow students who may be completely clueless as well...
Also anything that should be added to the "do not say at job interviews" list is welcome~ :yelclap:
