New grad starting the job hunting search and wondering if you all have any tips for interviews for nurse practitioner positions. Also, I was wondering if you could share some experience with the hiring process as I have noticed that it seems to be a bit different than when I was a RN. For example, I have received 2 informal phone "interviews" from 2 different people within 1 network. I now have an appointment with 1 of the clinics where I will meet the physicians and medical directors and then they would like to take me to lunch. None of the phone calls nor the appointment next week feel like a formal interview, so I am wondering if there will be one? Also, I am kin to sending thank you letters after interviews, but honestly, I am a little lost as to who would be the best person to give these to. I plan to write a short thank you e-mail to those who had called and talked to me, but I am unclear who I should write a letter to in the clinic. Should I send an individual letter to each medical director/physician etc or a letter to the entire staff at the clinic? Any useful tips would be appreciated. Thanks!!
