Questions about the new job and hospital

In addition to being ready to answer standard questions, prepare for behavior-based interview questions. This is based on the premise that a candidate’s past performance is the best predictor of future performance. You need to be prepared to provide detailed responses, including specific examples of your work experiences. The best way to prepare is to think of examples where you have successfully used the skills you’ve acquired.
Take the time to compile a list of responses to both types of interview questions and to itemize your skills, values and interests as well as your strengths and weaknesses. Emphasize what you can do to benefit the company rather than just what you are interested in.
Expect to have your references checked prior to getting an offer. Plan ahead and compile a list of references and some letters of recommendation now, so you’re prepared when the employer requests them. Plan on what you are going to wear ahead of time. Professional attire is expected at most interviews. Also, make sure you know where you're going and give yourself plenty of time so you can arrive ahead of schedule.
Each Colleague’s orientation is tailored according to individual needs and previous life experiences. For new graduates, our extensive orientation programs give you the knowledge and confidence to practice in any specialty.
