Resume in hand, interview suit is pressed. It is time to go on an interview. Impress your interviewer by demonstrating a good work ethic and character.
Instead of humble bragging about how your skills are a suitable match, you’ll want to follow these tips on how to show what your personality and character are like in a professional medical setting. Try these tips and impress the hiring manager.
Show that you’re a professional
Hiring managers can glance at your resume and see that you have the credentials to do the job. What they don’t know by looking at your resume is how professional you might be while working under pressure. Do you get along well with authority? First off, dress well, arrive on time, make eye contact and offer a firm handshake. Then after the interview follow-up immediately with a thank you note, either by email or snail mail.
Practice feeling good about all of your achievements. Then study up on the company that you are interviewing for so you sound confident. Do whatever it takes to feel good, whether that’s getting a gym session in or listening to upbeat music to boost your mood. Hiring managers will want to hire confident people because they come across as more trust worthy.
Ask plenty of questions during the interview and at the end of the conversation so you show interests in the company and confidence.
Motivated and proactive
Managers want to hire proactive people. Demonstrate that you are a go-getter by telling a narrative of the time that you went the extra mile at work. By doing this, the hiring manager will be able to picture you in the job. You can ask questions on what it would take to be successful in the position in which you are applying. Asking this question will help the hiring person envision you being in the role and being successful in it. This is a powerful way to impress the hiring manager.
No matter what you do, never ever say anything negative in a job interview. It doesn’t matter if you worked for the most toxic hospital on the planet, do not say a word that appears to be negative because it will only make you look bad to the hiring manager.
Find ways to discuss what you learned from the experience and how this learning has helped you prepare for your next role.
Choose to remain upbeat and highlight your work history in the most positive light possible, without sounding too cheesy. Even in challenging positions, it is worth noting what worked, what you learned and how all of these nuggets of experience have prepared you for the future.
There are ways to talk about bad experiences in a positive manner. But, if you have to go there, say the company wasn’t the right fit and you’re grateful for what you’ve learned. Top it off and say that you look forward to applying this knowledge to help the company you’re interviewing for.
Consider the aforementioned tips to help you prepare for your next interview. Above all, the more that you can show your good character, the more successful you will be in landing an offer letter. Good luck.
