Interviews may be a nerve-wracking experience for some especially for the first-timers. Some may find themselves excited because they got a call from Melorita, but the thought of being invited to a job interview with the employers give them some chills as that picture sort of freak them out, but hey, it doesn’t have to be like that. If you come in to an interview prepared, then there’s nothing to worry about. Moreover, if you are positive and do well at the Delegation Interview, you would receive an approval from client soon after the interview.
So here are some tips on how to produce positive results at a formal interview:
NOTE: Please Be Prepared To Answer Clinical Questions Related To The Unit That You Specialized In
Give a brief discussion in what you’ve been doing before, at present and where you want to go in the future(you vision, goals and specific plans to be able to reach these goals.) You can also give a brief personal background and mention some of your interests which are relevant to your profession and the job that you are applying for(e.g. health, wellness, fitness, reading nursing journals, research, etc.)
You should be able to highlight what you have that others cannot offer. you should explain what is so special about you.
Answering limitations is not supposed to be a minus point for you. Whatever your limitations are, you should be honest about it, you can say it in nicer way by just starting with “Although U have basic knowledge in…I think it’s one area that I ned to improve on / study further” or “I feel that I’m not very good in…but I can easily learn it by taking training courses or by self-studying.”
Highlight why your training and experience qualify you for this specific nurse job. Prepare for this beforehand by closely reviewing the key job requirements and matching the revelant skills and abilities you have gained to these. Provide specific examples of these skills when answering this question.Use your background research to show your understanding of the key challenges faced by this organization.Detail how you can help meet these challenges and be part of the solution.
Similarly, you should be able to justify why they should get ou over the other candidates. You should know what the requirements of the job are and tell them that you have all the skills and experience to match those requirements, ALso mention other things that you can do on top of the basic requirements needed. Aside from knowledge, skills and experience, attitude is one important thing that you can also highlight. you can tell them all the good qualities that you have.
Below are some tips on how to produce positive results at a Skype interview:
Whether your call is video or telephone, do it in a quiet, businesslike setting, ideally in a room with a door.
Your first few video calls are bound to feel awkward as you figure out where to look, what to do with your hands, or how loudly to speak. But it’s easy to work out those kinks ahead of time.
At an in-person interview, you’d naturally smile upon arrival, and try to keep a pleasant facial expression for the duration.
It’s more difficult to do this with a remote interview. Lacking a ‘live’ person in front of you, and sidetracked by thoughts of equipment or cameras, you might be less likely to smile reflexively. If that’s the case, you can seem like you’re staring wide-eyed at the camera.
Ever heard of active listening? Especially with a phone interview, it’s important to give the other caller periodic clues that you’re still there. After all, do you like speaking into silence?
Below are some tips on how to produce positive results at a telephone interview:
Brief “yes” and “no” responses will not move a telephone interview forward, but will end it quickly. So, start by practicing your answers to the common interview questions now so that you are ready when the unplanned telephone interview occurs.
Place a mirror by the phone, and make a point of looking into it and smiling while you are talking on the phone. Start now, so you can become comfortable with it.
You will find that you sound more upbeat and engaged when you do this. Your smiles will be “heard” by the interviewer making for a positive impression.
Prepare all of the materials you will need for the interview and be at the location of the call at least five minutes early. The interviewer can call early; in fact, some hiring agents use this as a tactic to test candidates.
If you’re firing off resumes like cruise missiles, it is possible you’ll receive an unexpected interview call. If you receive a call out of the blue, don’t be afraid to tell them you need to call back. This will give you time to research the organization, research the person, and make sure you’re at a suitable location for the call.
Yes, this is an interview which means they’re going to be asking you questions, but it’s also an opportunity to show your potential employer that you’re good at listening too.
Talk, but don’t dominate the conversation. Let the interviewer guide the conversation.
