How Should Applicants Answer Critical Interview Questions?

February 13, 2024

1. "Why do you want this position?" 
- Showcase your passion for the role and how it aligns with what experience you have or want that points toward your career goals.

2. "Why should we choose you?" 
- Highlight your specific unique skills, experiences, and achievements that set you apart as the ideal candidate.

3. "Describe a situation where you disagreed with your boss, were running late to work, were sick and had to call out, or knew you made a mistake on a project at work." 
-  Have examples of how you handled specific challenging situations with professionalism, problem-solving skills, and integrity. For instance, if you had a car issue and knew you would be late, what did you specifically do to ensure your employer knew the situation - float one text out or continue to call until you reached a person?



We take the time with our applicants to talk through interview questions so they already have situational examples in mind. We can all tout how amazing we are but the employer wants to know what you DID in certain situations. 

For example - in the case of being late - you shouldn't just send a short text to your employer. An employer wants an employee to care that their boss has a heads-up - they continue to reach out to ENSURE their employer is aware of the situation and follow up with their ETA - It's important to express this as an applicant.  

A few other common situations that really mess up an interview before it starts...
- Being late - enough said.
- The suite number tells you the floor - suite 1200 is on the 12th floor...
- Every office building has a menu board with the names of the businesses and their suite #
- Research the company, owner, and products on Google, know the names of key people and what the company does!! Bring questions "...I was looking online and saw ..., ....how does the staff ...
- Take multiple copies of your resume with questions about the company and position
- Use Google Earth to see where you are going beforehand -- What the building looks like, where to park etc... 
- Dress to Impress IS a real thing in an interview! It shows you respect the other person by taking the time to be your best

🌟Empower Your Career: The Art of Acclimating in a New Environment! 🚀

October 26, 2023

The journey of learning and acclimating to a new professional environment is significant. When asked how they approach this process, individuals often respond with terms like 'train,' 'guide,' or 'assist.' Let's explore the nuances of these responses and what they reveal about a candidate's potential fit in the workplace.

 

Saying 'train me' may inadvertently raise a red flag. While eagerness to learn is admirable, this response might suggest that the candidate lacks certain qualifications, potentially signaling the need for extensive hand-holding. Projecting a proactive approach to learning and adapting to a new role is essential.

 

On the other hand, expressing a need for 'guidance' demonstrates a willingness to be led, which is a step in the right direction. It signifies an openness to learning from others. However, the ideal approach often balances self-driven learning and seeking guidance, creating a collaborative and adaptable mindset.

 

Navigating a new professional environment requires a blend of self-motivation and the capacity to benefit from the wisdom of those around you.

 

How do you want to empower your career further? What impact do you want to have on the healthcare industry? Join us and let's continue to unlock the secrets of successful acclimation and professional growth. 🌟💼
