Your hospital interview will take place after you have completed your US Ready training modules and after feedback has been distributed. Our recruitment teams and operations managers will then present your résumés and information to our clients (healthcare providers). They, in turn, will decide who they would like to invite to interview (the interview is usually held over the telephone).
This really is your time to shine! You need to be able to sell yourself to the care providers in terms of your:
- Knowledge and skills;
- Coping skills, and;
Know your career path
You will need to know your résumé inside out, as well as being able to account for any gaps in your practice during your nursing career. You will need to provide specific examples of nursing situations you have experienced and what you have learned from them. These examples may be specific achievements in your career, examples of great nursing care that you have delivered, examples of when you have worked well as part of a team, or they may also ask you to reflect on a situation in your career where you felt challenged or found difficult to manage. Preparation ahead of a hospital interview is key – spend some time beforehand thinking of examples that you can use on the day.
It is equally important to allow your personality to shine through too. Demonstrate your enthusiasm for the role in your tone of voice as well as the vocabulary you choose. You will have been given some information about the hospital and the role you are applying for too – tell them why you feel you will be the best candidate for that specific role, and why you want to work there.
